About Amit Dolawat
Amit Dolawat who rose to fame as Kay Kay in Kesar is grinning from ear to ear. After the success of his last show Saat Phere as Sridhar, he's entered as Dev in Zee's Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan. And he is a happy man.
It's a very different role. With my entry in the show there are many twists and turns lined up and I'm looking forward to the serial," says Amit
Elaborating on his character, he says, "Dev Singhania is a struggling actor who is hired by the four daughters in the house to con Pavitra (Jasvir Kaur). He is a tapori who keeps trying his luck in Bollywod. As I have just entered the show my character is still in the developing stages. Currently I'm playing the role of Prince who'll trap Pavitra and stop her from grabbing the property of the Garodia family."
What happened to your role in Main Aisi Kyun Hoon? "I was there for seven episodes but my look did not fit in with the character of Vickey. I was too young for it and thus opted out of the show," he quips.
Amit is content with the roles he has played until now. He's patient and willing to wait for a meaty role to come his way.
Amit Dolawat is the latest entrant in Ghar Ki Laxmi Betiyaan. The actor, who had earlier worked in Balaji's Kesar, tells us more about his role in the show.
"It is about a struggling actor with tapori shades, He had spent 22 years in Mumbai so it is not difficult for him to speak that language. Also, he used to stay in a place where all my neighbours belonged Rashtriya Mill Mazdoor Sanghatana so that really helped.
"Sharing his experience about working on the show, he says, "Everyone liked my first scene where I got down from a Mercedes in front of Jasveer (Pavitra) and then left by scooter. I had many scenes with Jasveer and we enjoyed it. So far people have been complimenting me for my work. Some have told me that I have done a brilliant job. My friends also like me in the show. I hope that my role will last for a long time even though I have not asked whether it is a cameo or full time."
Asked about how he landed this role, Amit says, "I auditioned for them long back for some role but that time it could not happen because of budget issues. Few days back they called me again for this role. The nice part is that when they started narrating it to me, I immediately stopped them after listening to the first line."
The actor was earlier a part of Saat Phere and also played a mentally challenged character in Milee. That apart, he has done some music videos as well. Through Betiyaan, he is making a comeback on television after a year's gap.
"I am only doing this one show so I want to concentrate on it for now," he signs off.
