‘I relate to my character’

What are the prominent shows you have been a part of so far?

I have been fortunate enough to be a part of some popular and successful shows. The list includes Mere Angne Mein, Krishna Chali London, Ek Mutthi Asmaan and Channel V’s show Swim Team.

Do you believe in show’s title? Is Sarvagun Sampanna, 

a reality or an illusion?  

The title is about how our perception of someone being Sarvagun Sampanna, someone having all qualities, someone perfect is actually a bhram, a delusion. What we see is not the reality about that person. I feel our title perfectly describes the main plot of our show.

How did you get this show?  

Back in December 2018, I got a call from the production house for the role of Dhruv. Dipti Kalwani, the producer, had seen my previous work and I had also worked with Star Plus in my last two shows. I had to compete with a lot of actors to get this role and got finalized two months after my audition. That’s how I am in the show.

For the readers who haven’t seen the show yet, 

please share your

character details.

I play Dhruv who is the eldest son in Mittal Family and is married to Janhvi (Shrenu Parikh). He is today’s Ram, very positive, he loves his wife, respects his parents and is like a best friend to his brother Kabir (Zain Imam). My look in the show is  very stylish.

How much do you relate to your character?   

I relate to my character in a lot of ways. In reality, I am a positive person and stay away from negativity. I respect and love my parents. Just like my character, I am the eldest son and have a younger brother. Though, I am single but if I had a partner I would care for her the same way Dhruv cares for Janhvi. 

Thriller shows work big time with audiences. 

What do you have to say on that?   

Yes, they do work very well but then in the world of television especially daily shows we have to maintain the thrill in every episode and keep creating interesting stories and content. In our show, we have a great team of writers, all working hard to keep the viewers hooked to our show.

How is it working with actress Shrenu Parikh?  

Shrenu is actually a ‘Sarvagun Sampanna’ actor in true sense. She can easily portray any kind of character, thanks to her talent, discipline and perfect expressions. Our chemistry and scenes are being loved and appreciated by the viewers.
