There are very few actors who have been successful on TV as well as in Bollywood and one amongst them is talented actor Mohnish Behl.
He won accolades for his performance in Bollywood blockbusters like 'Maine Pyaar Kiya'
,'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun'
and TV hits like'Sanjivani'
, 'Dill Mill Gayye'
and 'Kuch Toh Loh Kahenge'
Now, the actor is back on TV and is currently seen hosting Life OK's 'Savdhaan India- India Fights'
Back. But Mohnish is not new to the genre of hosting as he has anchored Star Plus' reality show Star Vivah
However, it was the content of 'Savdhaan India-India Fights Back'
that attracted him to take up the show. Mohnish says, "The primary reason behind me signing the show was the content and the intent of the show. Savdhaan India
not only narrates a criminal incident but also highlights a common man's journey to fight against injustice."
Interestingly, Mohnish who has done various roles on TV and in Bollywood, ends up playing a doctor each time on the small screen. When quizzed about the same, the actor (laughs), "It's not at all planned neither is it in my hands. It started with Sanjivani
and then Dill Mill Gayye
just followed. It was just a co-incidence."
Mohnish's role of Dr. Ashutosh in Sony TV's daily soap Kuch Toh Log Kahenge
became extremely popular and he garnered a large fan following as a result. But the actor was surrounded with a lot of controversies when he decided to quit KTLK
On being asked about his sudden exit from the show, Mohnish recalls, "I was not used to working 18 hours a day and so couldn't cope up with it. Then it started taking a toll on my health which is why I decided to quit the show. However, I was very hurt when I read that the reason behind my exit from the show was that I used to throw tantrums. In my 30 years of career I have worked with so many reputed people and big banners but no one has ever had any complaints regarding me. One has all the right to criticize me if I am a bad actor but after giving so much to the show I feel let down. I am a professional and it would have been good if people behaved in the same manner."
So does he miss being part of 'Kuch Toh Log Kahenge'
? "I don't miss anything or anybody from'Kuch Toh Log Kahenge'
. I have moved on in life and I am no more a part of Kuch Toh..
so there is no point in missing anyone.
But I must say it was very hurtful to read that I threw tantrums on the sets." shares Mohnish before signing off.
