Namish Taneja talks about his new show Aye Mere Humsafar

Aye Mere Humsafar’s Ved gives me a lot of room to experiment: Namish Taneja
Handsome hunk Namish Taneja, who was part of TV shows Main Maayke Chali Jaungi Tum Dekhte Rahiyo, Ikyawann, is currently winning hearts with his brilliant performance as Ved Kothari in Aye Mere Humsafar on Dangal TV.

The versatile actor got in a candid chat with IWMBuzz.com wherein he spoke about his new project, challenges and more. Read on:

Tell us something about your character in the show?

I’m playing the character of Ved Kothari. He is the youngest child of the family. He doesn’t have a clear direction of what he wants to do in life but has been fortunate enough to get everything very easily. He is playful and happy-go-lucky in nature. He tries to pursue different careers. He sometimes wants to be a dancer, sometimes he feels he is a good singer, at times he tries a hand at cooking and sometimes imagines himself to be a boxer. People will like his character as he is very lively and has a good heart.

How excited are you for Aye Mere Humsafar?

It’s a big opportunity for me. I have been fortunate and I’m grateful to bag back to back shows. Aye Mere Humsafar is a new show so it has a different level of excitement. I am personally looking forward to playing the character of Ved and continue to entertain the audience. Every show has taught me new things and I am looking for the same learning experience from this show too.

What made you say yes to the show?

The character of Ved is very lively and gives me a lot of room to experiment. I am not restricted to a certain framework and the character in the show develops over time. I relate to the character of Ved as I see a younger version of myself in him. I am very close to and fond of the Shashi Sumeet Productions and was elated to receive the opportunity. Dangal, the channel also picked my name. The cherry on the cake is I get to work with Neelu Ji once again and this time our relationship is of a mother and son.

What will be the USP of the show?

The writers are the USP of the show. They have a very calm and mature style of writing. Also, our characters are very special and are a distinctive personality in themselves.

How has been your experience while working with the co-actors?

Till now it has been a good experience and I am sure it will be the same going ahead too. All artists respect each other and are very hard working. I am treated as though I am a senior actor. I am humbled by everyone’s gestures and share mutual feelings.

How did you spend your time during lockdown?

The lockdown period was very nice as I spent a lot of time with my mom and dad. I never got to spend so much time with them earlier. So, it was good spending more time with my family. It wasn’t boring or stressful rather I enjoyed spending time at home. I explored myself. The lockdown also allowed me to discover the writer in me. I wrote and sang a rap song.

What was the thing that you missed the most during lockdown?

I am foody so I missed going to the restaurants the most. I also missed meeting my friends, going to the theatre and the gym.

Any final message for your lovely fans?

I would like to thank all my fans and well-wishers that whatever I am today is because of them. It is because of their unconditional love, support and blessings that I have not got a chance to sit at home (that’s an actor’s dream). I’d request them to continue showering their affection in the same way and I promise to try and keep them entertained.
