Twenty-six years ago today, a star was born. Who knew then, that this humble, down-to-earth, small-town guy would go on to one day captivate the hearts of millions, worldwide.
In an recent interview, Harshad claimed that he too wished to be surrounded by a mob of admirers'when he least expected it, with his stint in Star Plus' Nach Baliye 4, he finally got his dream come true. It was then that he realized that maybe he'd created more of a buzz than he'd thought. That's the kind of persons Harshad is. Completely aloof to the kind of stardom that surrounds him today'to the fact that he is the heartthrob of millions, loved and admired by the masses, the world over. Humble, sincere, firmly grounded, an actor par excellence who worships his work.
Always harboring big celluloid dreams, Harshad dared to chase those dreams against all odds, after moving to Pune to complete his Engineering degree. His hard work began with the Mr. Pune contest where he won for best physique...one small step in his journey to the top. Shortly after, he moved to Mumbai and dove in. He worked on all aspects of himself as a person in order to achieve his goals. After multiple auditions, he was given his first break in Mamta, where he was able to hone in on his acting skills as he prepared for Grasim Mr. India at the same time. While Harshad lost the title at Grasim, with Mamta, he was able to prove his natural talent. From the very first take, it was hard to believe he was a novice, completely new to the industry, learning the tools of the trade.
After learning the nuances of acting on the sets of Mamta, he went on to assay the role of Ali in Left Right Left. The character sketch of Ali was such that the audience was forced to admire him. However, the essence of the character had to be captured with utmost perfection, if this was to work. Harshad did exactly that. Ali was a character that Harshad portrayed with utmost dignity. However, despite that, what made Ali so loveable and charming was his honesty. An honesty that came from within HC. With Ali being Karan's polar opposite, it was astounding to see that Harshad could pull off the contrasting role with such precision. He took his natural talent and coupled it with his teachings from the sets of Mamta to help him hone in on his acting. The result: a skilled actor that could within a short span of time, seemingly take on any kind of role, and do full justice to it.
Alongside Ali, Harshad, for a short term, assayed the role of the fun-loving, suave, romantic Akshat, the male lead in Amber Dhara. His portrayal of Akshat proved the aforementioned - that he could assay any kind of role masterfully. Despite the fact that the character of Akshat had not developed fully into the storyline when Harshad assayed the role, he was able to make his mark in a show in which he was, at the time, merely a side character. This was a direct testament to his acting ability and the amount of screen presence he commanded. Thought the stint was short lived, he left a lasting impact.
Spring of 2008, after being away from the idiot box for a while, Harshad
returned to the small screen as Ekta Kapoor's new "chocolate boy" in KDMHMD. March 12, 2008. Prem Juneja, a character unlike any that has
ever been seen before, was introduced to primetime television for the first
time. A character deeply rooted in
values and morale, he is the epitome of love, and the very personification of
his name. As the perfect son, brother,
lover, and husband, Prem Juneja quickly captured the hearts of many. His heart of gold, coupled with a purity and
innocence so very uncharacteristic of today, left the masses craving for more. It comes as no surprise that the endearing,
amiable nature that HC possesses had an equal hand in catapulting Prem to newer
heights, as did the delicate sophistication, utmost perfection and uncanny
finesse with which he assayed the role.
two months after he first stepped onto the soccer field as Prem Juneja in Prem's
debut episode of 'KDMHMD', Harshad Chopda went on to win numerous
accolades for his performance as the ideal, adarshwadi beta of the Juneja
parivaar. That too, on his 25th
birthday. It was, according to him, the
best birthday present he could have ever received, and the most memorable
birthday for him, 'til date. From then
on, there was no looking back. Not only
was the audience captivated by one brilliant, soul stirring performance after
another, but we were also highly intrigued by the man behind our beloved
Prem. And it seems, the news channels
were intrigued by him as well. They
continued to bring us glimpses of the man who brought Prem to life, and we
quickly learned that he himself is so very much like Prem, though, with a bit
of a fun, lighthearted side, that makes him all the more endearing.
It has been just over a year, and the young Prem Juneja continues to captivate the hearts of millions worldwide. Even now, with the ever changing storyline and ambiguous plot, Harshad hasn't missed a beat; being a director's actor, he continues to assay the role as per the director's wish. HC has portrayed Prem with immense precision and simplicity, and made his way into the hearts of millions. It goes without saying, that Prem, is one of the most beloved characters of television today'and the man that brings him to life, among the best, and most sought after actors of the Indian television industry.
the past three years, Harshad has worked hard, perfected his skill, and won the
adoration of millions. Today he is one
of the most loved, respected, and in-demand actors of television. Harshad's dedication and determination has
catapulted him to great heights in very short period of time, and he will only
continue to climb higher in the future.
Despite all of this, the most endearing thing about Harshad, and what
makes him so loved and respected is that he chooses to remain simple, grounded,
and humbled; not at all effected by the uproar that he has created. His accomplishments and accolades prove that
he has what it takes to be the best of the best, but it is his this attribute
that makes him so admirable.
An actor who believes simply in doing good work, and letting his work speak for itself, it comes as no surprise that Harshad had achieved the heights of success in such a short period of time. Hard work is always rewarded and so, it goes without saying that Harshad will continue to be prosperous and reach the pinnacle of success, as he deserves. Today, on his 26th birthday, we wish him all the very best in his future endeavors. May he continue to be blessed with the all the very best in life. Happy Birthday, Harshad. Wherever this next year takes you, our undying support, and best wishes will remain with you, now, and always.
