The show marks actor Akshay Kharodia’s television debut and the actor has already made a mark with his stellar performance in the show.
We contacted Akshay and in a brief chat the actor opened up about similarities between his onscreen character and himself in real life, he said, “I can relate to Dev at several levels because I also come from a joint family and I exactly know how it is. Like Dev, I too keep family values as my priority and make sure to give respect to elders and love to the younger ones. I don’t give my opinions unless I’m asked for as a respect to elders in a family. Having said that, I sometimes don’t agree how Dev behaves with Rishita. At times, he gets too aggressive with his wife, which I don’t approve of”.
Speaking about the initial days of shoot he said, “I was glad to join the cast of the show. Post leap, the first track entirely revolved around Dev. The cast was very welcoming and now we hit of off since the start. I had done music videos, films and other projects and didn’t have an experience about how a TV show works. That’s the reason, initially I found it difficult to cope up with the hectic schedules as we shoot for 10-12 hours a day to meet the deadlines of a daily soap. But now, of course I’m used to it”.
