'I want to get back to films'
He has made quite an impression as Akshat in Star Plus' Kahiin to Hoga, stealing the limelight from Rajeev Khandelwal. In a bare all interview, Chaitanya Choudhry tells about life after Kahiin to Hoga.
Tell me something about yourself…
I have been born and brought up in Mumbai. I used to act in plays in school. My father is a documentary filmmaker and my mom was a theatre actress. I have done my MBA in marketing from Pune. I have also done a course in export management. Education was always a top priority.
How did Kahiin to Hoga happen?
I had done Dev Anand's Love at Times Square and Kalpana Lajmi's Kyun. I have done modeling also for Samsung mobile, Samsung printers and TV commercials like that of Nyle shampoo. I was also third runner up in 2001 in the Gladrags Manhunt. I was also titled Mr. Photogenic. Actually, a big production house selected me for a film, which eventually didn't materialize. I consulted a director friend and decided to do television. I auditioned for the role of Akshat and took up the offer. I hadn't even seen Kahiin To Hoga before taking up the offer.
Are you seeing Surveen Chawla?
We were newcomers. From co-stars turned friends and there is no love angle. Our on-screen chemistry is good. When she was new, I used to fight for her performance. We are quite comfortable with each other.
Describe your ideal woman…
She should be tall, attractive looking and above that she should be a good human being.
What is your idea of romance?
Just to be with the person I love.
What kind of offers you are getting?
I am getting a lot of offers particularly of offbeat movies. Right now, I want to concentrate on Kahiin To Hoga.
Your character "Akshat" has become as popular as "Sujal". Comment.
I don't know. Rajeev Khandelwal who plays Sujal is a very good friend of mine. He keeps joking, "you are stealing my popularity". Acceptance of my character was tough initially. With time, the character evolved and I was accepted. But Rajeev is still is very popular.
How do you feel on the adulation you got?
It feels nice. Fans from Pakistan call me. It is amazing some of my fans arranged my residence number and started giving calls. My parents were surprised.
Do you feel an actor needs to be compulsorily good looking on TV?
Good looks does matter. If one is good looking one at least gets a break. For example the lead of Kaavayanjali who wasreplaced after some time got the offer because of his looks. Looks does compensate for acting to some extent. Acting improves with experience. But in case of long term acting is of paramount importance.
If Kahiin to Hoga leaps, will you agree to play an older character?
I don't know. It depends on the situation. I don't think a leap is lined up so soon.
Do you think working on TV means earning good money?
Yes, it pays well.
Do you still want to do films?
Yes, I want to get back to films.

While we have loved seeing them together back when they were co-stars, ...
We have remembered him as a TV face since forever.
