In the past, Ramayan has been telecast on television twice over. This time around, the tall and strapping Delhiite Gagan Malik who was last seen in a major role in Shakuntala and has played important roles in Kumkum Ek Pyaara Sa Bandhan and Saath Banaayenge Ek Aashiyaan slips into the coveted shoes of Lord Ram.

People think I look like the actor who plays Mahadev: Gagan
Gagan Malik

You've done two mythological shows Shakuntala and now Sabke Jeevan Ka Aadhar - Ramayan. Do you have a special inclination towards these shows?
Well, I have done daily soaps too. I want to do all kinds of shows.

Was doing a mythology show always top of your mind?
Not really. I had also been selected for the role of Krishna in the past, but unfortunately things didn't work out. I have no connection with mythology, but my mom seems to have them. I feel I have got this role only because of her. My mom has written ram ram 200 crore times and kept fast during Navratris and read Ramayan for 200 times. I am also wrapped up the film Siddhartha The Buddha.

You take an hour to get ready for his character. Isn't that very cumbersome?
There are certain problems (headaches, cuts, back aches) that I face while dressing up for my character, but these problems are nothing in comparison to the kind of role I am doing.

Have you read the Ramayan?
I have seen Ramayan on TV when I was a child. Mom also used to read the epic to me. However, I have just started reading it now and Ram is my favourite character.

Ram has been played by Gurmeet Choudhary and Arun Govil in the past. Are you wary of the comparisons?
You'll be surprised to hear that people have complimented me that after Arun, now there is someone who can play the character of Ram well. I feel people shouldn't compare two actors at all. See we are creating awareness about an epic and that's what matters the most.

There are also hints that you resemble Mohit Raina, who is currently essaying Shiv in Devon Ke Dev... Mahadev. Do you feel you look like him?
No. I don't think so. But people are calling and telling my mom that they saw me in Mahadev. That's funny!

What do you think grabs maximum eyeballs on TV?
It's tough to say that. There was a time when saas bahu sagas ruled, then came love stories, reality shows and now it is the turn of mythology shows.

TV actors tend to get typecast easily.
Only age might create limitations for an actor. Gurmeet played the role of Ram, and then went to do play the lead in daily soaps. If someone plays an epic hero in one show and a baddie in his next, then the audience might not like it, but in the end it's about creative choices.

We hear you were a professional cricketer too?
If I wasn't an actor, I would have been a cricketer. I even played for the Ranji Trophy team in Delhi and then gave it all up for a career on TV.

TFS, but I kind of don't like his attitude.Ermm He seems to think he's on the same level as Arun Govil (he brought him up twice in the past too) and doesn't consider Gurmeet worthy of his respect. Of course, he said "people" but that remark of his about how after Arun Govil, people think now there is someone who can play the character of Ram well was unneeded and made him unprofessional. It would have been more courteous to say he doesn't like comparisons and has respect for the two actors who played Ram before him.

i think janki u are taking gagan's comment as wrong. any actor or any person don't like comparison, there is nothing to show attitude.

What I found wrong was this statement, "You'll be surprised to hear that people have complimented me that after Arun, now there is someone who can play the character of Ram well." By saying this, even though he's referring to other people, he is indirectly saying that after Arun Govil, no one accepted Gurmeet as Ram until he was chosen for the role, which is clearly false since Gurmeet has a huge fanbase from Ramayan itself.
 
I don't know whath his true intentions were, but in answer to that question he shouldn't have insulted Gurmeet even unintentionally. It was kind of rude.

if gagan is saying like this it means he gets some complements like this.so no need to talking about his attitude.don't take in wrong way that's all.
