1. Tell us something about the show, ‘Chand Jalne Laga’.

Chand Jalne Laga is a beautiful saga of love. It is a story of meeting and parting of two childhood sweethearts, Dev and Tara, whose destinies take unexpected turns, separating them only to bring them back together amidst new challenges.

2. Tell us about your character in the show.

I will be seen essaying the character of Dev, a self-made and determined man. He is a kind-hearted man, but sometimes the circumstances make him do things against his heart.  He has a unique gift of understanding horses and works as a stable boy for a wealthy Zamindar family. As a kid, he not only helps Tara conquer her fears but also imparts valuable life lessons to her. However, a misunderstanding creates a rift between them. Dev's life takes a dramatic turn as a grown-up who makes a lot of money. His sole purpose is to make Tara suffer. He holds her accountable for taking away his optimism and joyous spirit. 

3. How did you prepare for this role? How different is it from the roles you played earlier?

For me, it is important to get into the skin of the character first. For Dev’s character, I experimented with a lot of things. To get into the intensity and depth of Dev’s character, I often sat for long hours alone on my balcony and stared at the plain sky. It helped me develop the loneliness Dev has in him and made me feel connected to him. Dev’s character is so calculative, considering his balanced, limited display of emotions, which makes it very difficult for me to play this role sometimes, and this is what makes this role stand out.  I really hope that the audience appreciates my efforts and portrayal of Dev.

It's truly gratifying to see that the glimpses of the show have struck a chord with the viewers. I cannot wait for the audience to experience this fairytale romance.

5. What made you say yes to the show?

The moment I read the script of Chand Jalne Laga, I was taken aback. I could have never imagined that such an exceptional opportunity would come my way. For the last 2-3 years, I have been waiting to do a love story, and that was ‘Chand Jalne Laga’ for me. It's an extraordinary tale of romance, drama, revenge, and friendship. The character of Dev fascinated me right from the beginning. The intensity and emotional layers of the role presented a challenge that I, as an actor, found very compelling. I took it as a chance for me to showcase my versatility. This project spoke to my heart, and I couldn't resist saying yes to it. 

6. How is your equation with your co-star, Kanika Maan?

Our rapport translates wonderfully onscreen, and it’s this chemistry that the viewers have appreciated in the teaser of the show. We have this natural synergy, and we inspire each other to do better. It makes the entire process of enlivening a show fulfilling. I truly hope viewers will love our on-screen chemistry.
