My mother always wanted me to become an actor: Sagar Parekh

Young actor Sagar Parekh is experiencing his first stint as an actor in a daily with Colors’ Internet Wala Love.

Playing the role of Vihaan, the close friend of Jai (Shivin Narang), Sagar states, “It is a different experience for me to be part of the daily soap. Playing a character along with co-actors whom I have seen while growing is a great feeling.”

Talking about his character, he states, “Vihaan is a boy next door with whom every person will like to associate. He is a true friend and hence he is nicknamed ‘Lugaai’ which is a terminology to address a guy’s wife. It is a nice experience to share screen space with Shivin. He is so humble and nice.”

In fact, Sagar follows the dream path that his mother has chosen for him. “My mother always wanted me to become an actor. After my 12th board exams, my mother started applying for auditions and sending my pictures to casting people on Facebook. Immediately, within hours, I got a call for Gumrah and they asked me to come down from Patna to Mumbai immediately. However, I could manage to come; hence had to forego this shoot. But later during the holidays post my 12thexam, my father gave me the permission to test my luck by coming to Mumbai. I did not have a support or Godfather in Mumbai and had to work through the process all by myself. It was my mother’s dedication that acted as a guiding force. Within a year of coming to Mumbai, I got another call for Gumrah and that was the biggest day of my life.”

Sagar was part of the ZEE5 web-series, Babbar Ka Tabbar and now is part of Internet Wala Love.

“Internet Wala Love is the biggest turning point in my career. I am loved for my role and am getting recognized. I will want to continue impressing one and all with my acting chops,” he adds.

Best of luck, Sagar!!
