Tell us about your experience shooting for your new show…

Firstly, working with Balaji is like homecoming for me. Balaji plays a huge role in my career and I am forever grateful to the entire team at Balaji. Thus, when this role came to me I could never say no. Shooting experience with them has always been amazing and very special.

What made you select this show and character?

Like I said, Balaji plays a huge role in my life. When this role was offered to me, I was very eager to be a part of the show because the character itself has so many twists and turns. And this was one of the major reasons why I was so eager to take up this role.

How will your entry bring new twists to the storyline?

Well, as we know new entries always bring in a new twist in a show, but precise details of new entries are always decided by the creative team. I would want audiences to just wait and watch.

How does it feel to be back on TV?

I always loved working for TV and I still do. I prefer breaks as constantly working gets monotonous at times. But I don’t like taking long breaks as shooting keeps me happy. And I generally love doing things that make me happy.

Do you think it is risky to enter a show mid-way?

Everything we do is risky as at the end of the day we are trying to portray a fictional character. So, be it a new show or midway, everything is risky if we don’t pay attention.

What do you enjoy playing more: a negative or positive role?

I enjoy playing all kinds of roles, as each new role teaches me something or the other.  And to be honest I enjoy being on set and shooting. And give my best for every role, thus I love playing any role be it negative or positive.

How has your experience been working with co-stars? 

The co-stars in this show are amazing, It’s not only the co-stars, the entire team, everyone on set is so good and full of love and respect. This is one of the good things about working in Balaji and Sony TV production. It’s good. They made me feel comfortable from day one. So, I want to thank them.

Any final message for fans?

I would like to say thank you for appreciating my work. Please watch the show. It has an amazing message and showcases how much children suffer because of their parent’s separation.
