Rajesh Jais, currently seen as father of four pretty girls from Shastri Sisters, is an honest man. While we caught up to converse with him about how his character will progress in the show, we were taken aback when he expressed his dissatisfaction for his character.
Let us hear what he had to say!
Rajesh said, "Yes, I am dissatisfied with my character. I am not wrong when I say that because I want to evolve myself as an actor. I am not blaming anyone for my character not progressing on the show but I am tired being a pillar in the story."
Those were some words!
Rajesh who started his career doing shows such as Dekha Ek Khwaab, Godh Bharaai and Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? and Bollywood movies such as Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Johnny Gaddaar claimed that he was always type casted characters.
He averred, "Let me tell you a bit about myself. Be it any character I essayed, I was offered similar characters after that. Since I did not want to be pigeon-holed, I kept taking sabbaticals after the wrap up of my shows and waited only to be offered the same. I took that up to explore myself and then the same thing followed after the show concluded."
"This industry needs tailor-made actors so I do not blame anybody for offering me cliched characters. Everyone is in the run to get maximum rating and hence churn out tracks which appeal to the masses. But I really want to see myself doing varied roles so I can show people what I have in my kitty apart from the regular." He added.
For those who are unaware, Rajesh is a national medallist for the shooting championship in India and comes from an air-force training background!
Expressing his thoughts he culminated saying, "I would love to portray a similar character on television too! In fact, I recently shot for an upcoming film titled Missing where I essay a Mauritian police officer. "
We wish you luck and grace Rajesh!
