Siddhant Karnick is "still trying to figure out why Aasman Se Aage ended so soon"
Siddhant Karnick is a real nature lover and loves to get away from the busy life when he has free time!! With his show Aasman Se Aage on Life OK shutting shop, Siddhant took off for a bike trip in the mountainous range.
Talking about his expedition on the bike, Siddhant tells "I went on a bike trip with 20 friends recently. We started from Chandigarh and touched places like Shimla, Lahaul-Spiti (icy heights of Himachal Pradesh) and finally ended our trip at Leh Ladakh. While returning, we used the treacherous Manali-Leh Highway."
When asked about the dangerous road conditions encountered while driving, the actor says, "Roads all over India are bad. After zipping around the potholes in Mumbai, I have gained a lot of experience in handling the off roader. I use a Bullet 500CC Mean Machine besides my foreign bike."
After returning from this bike journey, Siddhant flew to Bangalore to spend some quality time in the Bannerghatta National Park. "I am enjoying the company of white tigers, lions and other majestic animals in their pristine natural habitat." Taking a jab at the 'wild life' back in Mumbai, he avers, "I prefer the jungle as there are at least no people to stab you at the back here."
Coming to the work front, Siddhant is presently working on a new experimental play Kora directed by Quasar Padamsee which will premiere in September. "The best part of this musical based play is that we are full of artistes who can do well on some other performing arts other than acting. I can dance while there are few who play some musical instruments."
Siddhant who has earlier been part of the notable Rage Productions' play Satellite City is also busy these days with an offbeat film tentatively titled Liten Amaya with Farooque Sheikh and Deepti Naval. "Working with such talented people is a learning curve. Though I cannot talk much about the script, I can say that this is a feel-good film."
Lastly, we could not stop from asking Siddhant on the reason for Aasman Se Aage to shut early and he was quick to say, "We are still trying to figure out that. People say the show did not have TRPs, but if this was true then I would not have been appreciated for my work in the show by a Buddhist lady in isolated Ladakh when I was there for my bike ride."
Well said Sid, I also am very unhappy the show got shut ! It is an amazing show and deserved a long duration. You are into the passion of dancing and I am sure with acting and dancing on the show was a blast for you.
All the characters were differnt and they have an edge over other characters which I saw on other shows
Alias this show did need room to stay
