It seems the adage 'Out of sight, out of mind' does not hold true for actor Mohnish Behl as he feels that small breaks in between help him prepare for a new start.

Behl, 48, who started his career in 1982 with films and then shifted to small screen with sitcom Sanjivani, feels gaps are necessary for an actor to grow.

He will be seen again portraying the role of a doctor in Sony Channel's mismatch love story Kuch To Log Kahenge.

"I have always taken gaps of eight months after finishing a particular project. The gap rejuvenates me and motivates me to start up a new project with new energy. I have never overloaded myself with work and gaps are integral part of an actor's life because it always helps an actor to grow," he told PTI.

At a time when actors have small shelf-life on small screen, Mohnish has been one of the most loved faces on TV despite being choosy in selecting the roles.

While most of the small screen stars have added reality shows to their portfolio, Behl, son of actress Nutan, says he is not charmed by the world of reality.

"I will never do reality shows because I don't believe in portraying a non-fictional character on-screen. I am an actor and would like to play a character. I need a role and script where I can bring life through my acting prowess. I don't see myself as an entertainer.

"Sanjivani was a hospital based drama and playing the character of a doctor was an intrinsic part in it. Whereas this particular serial is a miss-matched love story of two people who only share the same profession. Here, the emphasis is not on the profession rather it stresses on love story," he said.

The sitcom is an adaptation of Dhoop Kinare, the cult Pakistani television drama. But Behl says he didn't watch the serial to infuse originality in the character.

Behl says that the current phase of TV is the best phase as it deals with mature subjects.

"Subjects which we see in serials like 'Saans', 'Ashirwad', 'Astitva' have mature subjects. All these kind of stories were never part of the genre of Television. They were the part of big screen. Now, channels are trying to show something beyond their standard cliche," he said.

He became a hugely popular face in 1989 after playing a negative character in 'Maine Pyar Kiya' but actor Mohnish Behl says he had undergone through a horrible phase ahead the film.

"I recall those years as horrible. I started my career in 1982 as a hero. My first five films were huge flops and I became jobless for three years. Being the son of such a veteran actress and having an active film background, it was the toughest phase of my life. Then Maine Pyaar Kiya

Behl will be seen next in John Abraham starrer Force and Rohit Dhawan debut direction in Desi Boys.

"I have just completed shooting for Force which is based on the lives of four cops and I am playing one of the cops. I will also be seen in a cameo appearance in debut director Rohit Dhawan's Desi Boys," he said.
happened and helped me to establish as an actor. It gave me a leap of seven years," the actor said.
