Abhaas Mehta (shyam) : Interview
Hey how are u ? - hello everyone!!im doing great..and i hope so are you all!!
Can u give us a brief introDuction of You plz ( For your fans )
- firstly..i hate the word fans so id rather that we use the words audience or viewers or else, if you'll may allow me to,then friends!!
im abhaas,24 years old...as you all know im playing a lawyer in the show...im also one in real too..i finished my graduation in law 2 years back from pune..im from bombay..but still relatively new here..i went to a boarding school in class 4 was there till my 12th..then i did my law from pune..that lasted for 5 years. i got my first break in tv with bairi piya on colours..then i did devi on imagine and then laado on colours...and this being my 4th show..so im pretty much new in this industry as well
How came IPKKND ? How did u got the role ? What's the show which gived you Most fame ?
- well, ive always aspired to become an actor since my childhood..i did a lot of theater in school and a number of short films for FTII, pune in my college days..once i came back to bombay for good,after my grad, i joined anupam kher's actor prepares and immediately after that became a part of a theater group called lakshaya arts..that dealt with amateur theater..i kept auditioning and in a few months got my first show bairi piya..thats how i got into tv.
i believe its not a show, but a character that makes you popular...love him or hate him but shyam is getting the viewers' notice, so i guess its ipkknd
well, back in march i was shooting for a show on colours, which unfortunately got scrapped before it cud hit the screen..so immediately i was called by the cvs here to give a screen test for the role of shyam..and so i did..within a few days i was a part of this show
What Do you like in Shyam ? how is he ?
- hmmm...i love the calmness and composure of shyam..and the ease with which he gets his way...you will see that in the coming episodes..he's a smooth talker..a charmer with a flamboyant personality...he can make you believe 2+2 is 5 and not 4, if he wants to..thats his confidence and power of conviction...love that
If not an actor ? What would u be ?
- if i wasn't an actor then without a doubt i'd be a fitness professional...even though i can't imagine not being an actor..this is my life
What was the sequence You had more fun shooting?
7- the best scene..or rather the scene where i had most fun shooting was my entry scene..if you'll saw it then you'd know what i mean..i had never done something like that and it was so exciting!!
What do You hate the most ?
i hate to accept defeat without even giving it a try
What do u love the most ?
- i love my family and friends the most
Who's your Favorite Co-Star so who's s the one with who u can get well the most?
- thats a real tough one!! everyone has been so good to me..im relatively the junior most on this show, work wise and age wise..and there is so much to learn from each and everyone..with the tonnes of experience they've got..i've shot with deepali, sanaya and buaji the most so far...and since my accident everyone,cast and crew, they have all been so co-operating and take care of the fact that im not uncomfortable at any given point..my e.p, director, cvs, dop,lightmen,..everybody...ive done a show with deepali before so we've been friends for over a year...but the rest were new to me..but they all accepted me into this show with big hearts..sanaya is like an elder sister and buaji is like a mom..they get food for me from their homes..they know my fetish for rajma so they surprise me by getting it to the sets
...ive only recently started shooting with the raizadas but even there i am made to feel like home..id met barun and daljeet before and worked with akash in earlier scenes..so we had already become good friends..and even mami, mamaji and nani are brilliant and there is just soo much fun during shoots..its just too good to be true..so singling out one is impossible
Define Them in One Word
- sanaya- livewire
nani- i met today for the 1st time
sana- just a brief interaction one day for a very short time
