consolidate his position as mentor and guide to the participants, and
through them, the audience.

good looks add to his charisma.

come across the small screen whenever he is in a scene.
Amit Sarin: He plays Sahil in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. His
concentration and dedication to his work is amazing.
