Actor Hitesh Bhardwaj who plays the role of Manav in Colors’ Choti Sarrdaarni considers this role as his biggest opportunity so far in his acting career.
The show Choti Sarrdaarni which is presently showing the cute love story of Manav and Meher (Nimrit Kaur), is being liked by viewers.
Hitesh who has been around as actor for nearly 7-8 years now has featured in shows Agar Tum Saath Ho, Million Dollar Girl, Suvreen Guggal: Topper of the Year etc.
In the Colors show produced by Cockrow and Shaika Entertainment, Hitesh plays the youngster, an orphan who has an extremely positive outlook to life.
Says Hitesh, “I am working really hard on my role. Manav is a genuine hard-working guy. He is someone who will give in his 100 percent to whatever he does.The way he feels and reacts to situations are really nice. He is working towards his IAS exams, and is a chef too. Being an orphan, he has walked his way all alone. He is a complete man who has understood the situations he has come from and has changed his life for his betterment. He is in love with Meher and wants to spend his life with her. Overall, the vibes around Manav is very good.”
“Frankly speaking, the TV audience has become very intelligent. There is a need for every actor to work hard on the role and look. Otherwise, an actor has a chance of finding himself lacking the needed nuance. For me, to play Manav, the main challenge was to get into the Punjabi dialect very well. Being a Non-Punjabi from Mathura, I had to put in the extra effort to get my dialect right. And today I am happy that people who have watched the show feel that I am a real Punjabi guy,” he adds.
Hitesh Bhardwaj got married to long-time girl friend Suditi Srivastava earlier this year. “This is the biggest opportunity that I have got as an actor. I have been working hard for nearly 7 years now. I got married recently, and I feel that my lady luck is with me now (smiles). My wife has been supporting me a lot and this is a big show for me.”
Ask him about his role being short-lived with the concept of the show based that way, and he says, “I am not allowed to speak on the track. But all I can say is that viewers will get to see a beautiful love story with lot of twists.”
Tell him that the love story of Manav and Meher is coming out really well and he states, “Yes, we have got a positive response, as our chemistry is coming out well onscreen. Working with Nimrat is a pleasure. She is a wonderful co-actor and a friend. Frankly speaking, it was tough to project the love and chemistry and establish the fact that Manav and Meher have been in love for 5-6 years. We got to know each other only recently. And we had to go through a lot of workshops. And as we started shoot, we got to become good friends. I can tell you this that there is a good level of comfortability working with Nimrat. Our chemistry has been coming out well. We are blessed that viewers have started liking our scenes.”
Best of luck, Hitesh!!
