With the boy-next-door looks, Pulkit Samrat already has more than one cap on. He talks to indya.com about his experience after just three weeks following his launch on India's premiere show.
Model, actor and magician, this new face on the STAR Plus block has his hands full with more aspirations. Pulkit has accomplished getting on the first step towards lots more limelight. "A dream come true", he says following the rave reviews he has been getting from young girls and seniors in the field.
How does it feel being part of Kyunki...?
It's a mixed feeling, feels great on side and on the other I have the fear of not succeeding. I consider myself lucky to get the role of Lakshya in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi on STAR Plus, that adds more value and makes it awesome for me... More so with the kind of launch I got - I play one of the lead characters, what more can a debutant ask for!
Did you always want to be an actor?
Yes, and all my life I have been preparing for this, I had enrolled my self in a modeling school in Delhi, took theater courses. I then shifted to Mumbai and did some ads, and follwing the auditions for Kyunki..., I am here to stay.
Are you happy with the kind of break you've got in Kyunki…?
Oh yes, I have been getting great reviews starting from the launching scene, it was followed by many calls, not many apart from my immediate family knew about this, I just sent a SMS message asking them to watch Kyunki…, that evening. And people who know and who don't know me tried to get in touch with me the same night to wish and bless me luck. The response has been good!
Who is your role model among the characters of Kyunki…?
Karan, I really like the charatcreisation of Karan, he has a soft and hard side, he is real... He has authority and does what he thinks is right, it is a charater people will automatically fall in love with.
Which actor in the previous generation of Kyunki did you hope to work with, before being part of the cast yourself?
Hiten Tejwani, again.
What do you bring to the show?
Freshness, youth, more to look out for, one more member to be welcomed into your families.
How is it working with the cast?
They are all so helpful, we rehearse scenes together and it's fun. At the same time, we get to learn a lot from the seniors.
How much of Lakshya is Pulkit? Tell us about the charater of Lakshya?
Lakshya is almost like me - Humourous, good natured, observant, sensitive… The charater is built up slowly, initially you only saw him observing, trying to bring harmony in the disturbed family, trying to console people… Before the audience thought he is meant to do only that, last week he reacts strongly when Mantan's friend misbehaves with Tulsi.
How has life changed since two weeks?
I have no time, and that is a good thing as I live away from home and I like being occupied, what else can I ask for if I am occupied doing what I want to do. I get goose bums thinking of where I am today. Many girls are trying to get my phone number through my friends!
It feels good, I have just reached the stage when I stand at a traffic junction, I am not just anybody, but someone whom many recognize, it is a good feeling.
