I didn't expect to change dynamics: Ram Kapoor

I didn't expect to change dynamics: Ram Kapoor

Ram Kapoor, who seems to have broken the image of a stereotypical hero on TV with "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain", never expected to do this. The popular TV actor says the success adds pressure and places responsibility on his shoulders.

As a forty-plus, overweight business tycoon, who is forced to marry middle-class girl Priya Sharma(Shakshi Tanwar) and eventually falls in love with her, Ram kapoor has yielded awesomeresponse for "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain".

"It's a humbling experience. I still haven't fully adjusted to it...didn't expect so much," he told IANS in a group interview.

"I knew I was doing well and was lucky to have hit shows. But I did not expect to change the dynamics of a TV hero. I am still adjusting to it. It fills me with a lot of responsibility because if the audiences give you so much love, you can't take them for granted," added the actor.

Ram, 39, also known for "Kasamh Se" and for hosting reality show "Rakhi Ka Swayamwar", will next be seen in celebrity cookery show "Welcome - Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi Ki" on Life Ok.

"I liked the basic idea about food and entertaining guests. I trust the channel and the people behind it. I said yes even though I didn't really have the time," said the actor who always looked for something different to do besides acting in a daily soap.

"As a TV star, I have always done same character for many years. For example, when I was doing 'Kasamh Se', I was playing Jai Walia for years...and now there is 'Bade Achhe Lagte Hain'. So you tend to get stuck."

"So in my other work, I try to look for something different which will motivate me and help me grow as a person," he added.

The actor has been an integral part of the TV industry for many years and points out that the TV industry has grown by leaps and bounds and will continue to do so.

"It has grown so much. Today the amount of media coverage the TV actors get didn't happen earlier. This is just the beginning. I feel the TV industry will grow so much that after 15 years there will be no difference between our TV industry and that of the West," he said.

A superstar on television, he doesn't let such thoughts overpower him.

"I value-add to different shows in a different way. TV has become very cut-throat. The people running channels know what they want. If they feel they want my value addition to the project, then only they come to me. So I have the luxury not to think about such things," he said.

Is he satisfied with his career graph?

"To be able to live your passion and make money out of it, is a dream. I am fully aware of the number of people who come to Bombay to make it in showbiz and hardly two percent of them get a break and I am happy to be a part of that two percent. But in my assessment of where I want to reach, I know I have a long way to go. So I choose not to get satisfied," he said.

Why does he avoid media?

"I am not too comfortable with the media. If it was up to me, I would not come in front of the media at all. I would only do my work.

"But I know media is a part of the industry. But for me, it never comes naturally to me, so I try to keep it to the minimum. Also, I am shooting most of the month, so I don't even have too much time," he said.
