Debutant Ram Yashvardhan feels on top of the world to play his dream role which has various shades in Star Bharat’s Ek Thi Rani Ek Tha Raavan.
Ram plays the character of Rivaaj, who is a stalker.
Talking about the role, he shares, “I was impressed by the concept of the show and hence agreed to do the series. The show is a lesson for both the genders. When I bagged the role, my family was excited and I was nervous.”
When we ask him about the preparation of the role, he adds, “It took five months to get into the look. It was challenging to beef up. I gained 10 kilos for his role. As an actor, I believe in giving my 100 per cent to ensure that complete justice is done to the character. It was a tough routine that my gym instructor had put me on to achieve the desired physique. I had to work on the voice modulation and accent was difficult to adapt.”
Ram never judged the role as a negative character. “I never thought that the character is negative and I am debuting with such a dark shade character. I was not skeptical to get stereotyped. I am playing a character which has various shades. It is a dream come true role.”
On an end note, he adds, “I feel stalking is a very serious topic but people tend to ignore it. It should be raised and stopped as most of the crime start with stalking. The show has a great message which made me take up this series.”
Well said, Ram!
