You began with the small screen, switched over
to films and are now back on TV.
It is not a case
of angoor khattein that I am back on TV. It's just that I
wanted to do films. I wanted to try them out; I wanted to
satisfy myself. I made my big screen debut with Vinay Shukla's
Godmother, followed by films like Mahesh Manjrekar's Hathyar
and Vikram Bhatt's Footpath and Inteha.
Things did not work out?
didn't work. As an actor, I was looking to see where I could
fit in. I was looking at doing good character roles. Moreover,
I did not want to get into the daily TV soap grind of shooting
every day, leaving me no time for anything else.
you got back to TV?
I was always getting offers
for TV. I was offered the role of Mihir after Amar Upadhyay
exited Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. In fact, producer B P
Singh offered me a role in CID five years back. I do get
offers for dailies but I do not want the added hassle of
juggling dates. I shoot for about seven days for Remix and 16
days for Special Bureau.
But you still want to do films?
do have films on hand. Now I am looking at doing good work,
not just acting.
