story as an actor, commences differently. He had no burning ambition to
become one, but he was a dedicated perfectionist, in whatever life
threw at him. So when acting was presented as an option, Piyush went
after it. Indian Television got richer as a result, and Piyush has now
become one of the most sought after actors. Having been seen on popular
shows like Meet Mila De Rabba, Ghar Ek Sapna. We catch up with the actor
On your decision to become an actor?
lying if I said I always wanted to become an actor. But one feedback I
did get, based on my physical appearance was that, I should probably try
my hand in modeling. Anyway I showed up in Mumbai in 2001, it was more
circumstances that got me here, as opposed to any modeling or acting
desire. In fact in those days it was more of living life by the day. But
when I did get the chance to model, I decided to go ahead with full
preparation. However, I saw the life of an actor and that attracted me
more so I decided to follow that path. The theater group that I joined
in Juhu, was along the lines of a traditional guru- shishya system, and
in that environment I picked up the skills of acting and dialogues. My
self confidence increased as did my command over language, something
that was missing from my persona when I had arrived in Mumbai. This got
me started in the world of T.V. serials.
On your favorite character that you have played?
role of a Sardar (Sikh) , Kulwant Singh, in Meet Mila De Rabba. I say
that because that got me maximum recognition and accolades and also
because as an actor it felt great, when people refused to believe that I
was not a Sikh in real life. I must have done a reasonable enough job
as an actor, for them to have been so convinced.
What serial are you currently working on?
play a cop in the serial, Shapath, on a new channel, Life's OK.
Initially I was apprehensive on accepting the role, but it is turning
out great and I have been working hard, working out and working with
cops, to ensure I act as one, in the serial.
What do you do when you are not working?
or otherwise I have been working round the clock, ever since I became
an actor, but if I do get time, I like to spend it with my girlfriend,

A page from the personal diary of Piyush Sahdev
there is a profession in the world that is unsafe in terms of career,
it has to be acting. I still remember that when I was called for the
audition of Meet Mila De Rabba I was immediately selected and the
channel told me that they were looking out for someone like me. But when
the show was pulled off air I was very hurt because it was doing well.
it went off air, I was a bit tense and insecure about my future.
Earlier when I used to wake up in the morning I used to think what next?
But then I realised that if you are talented you will surely achieve
your aim. Currently I am just waiting for good offers to come my way and
this can be a frustrating time for any actor. In order to stay focused
and positive I am utilizing the time to shape up my body. I go to the
gym, do yoga everyday because I think that a person is ready to fight
only when he is fit.
Though talks are on with some production
houses and people will surely watch me soon on the screen, you can't
claim to be a part of any show until it starts shooting. I still
remember that I was finalised for Jiya Jale after a three month long
back and forth exercise. I had done my photo shoot and we had even
started practicing for the show. Just before the actual shoot I got a
call that the channel had roped some other actor in. Though the
producers sided with me, they were helpless before the channel.
shine till the show is on air. Once it goes off air the insecurity
arises and you start doubting every promise made to you. I didn't go for
the recently held TellyChakkar's New Talent awards because my show had
gone off air and I didn't want to face queries like why did it go off
air and all such awkward questions. Also I knew that I was not going to
win any award though I was nominated because I had no show in my hand at
that time and it would go to the actor whose show was still on air.
far my career has taught me some very crucial and great lessons. Now I
think that I won't get cheated again as I was some time back.
would suggest that youngsters don't struggle unnecessarily. If you have a
good job that earns you good money then don't leave that. Step in to
acting only if you are very passionate about it.
