Siddhant as Ranaji , Sagar and Karan
Written by Ranja
Before I start reflecting on the characters portrayed by him, let me first wish the King of a thousand hearts, Mr. Siddhant Karnick, a very happy 34th birthday. May all his dreams come true and may he keep entertaining for many more years to come.
I find it rather difficult to describe Siddhant's charm, panache and realistic portrayals of different reel characters in just a few words. And though personally, I'm not very aware of Indian serials and actors, watching Siddhant, for the first time, as Rana Indravadhan Singh Deo in Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani was a different experience altogether. And he became an addiction since then Keeping aside the fact that the makers had ruined the beautiful show and butchered his character, Siddhant as Ranaji was definitely the most gorgeous phenomenon on Indian TV in 2015. He was beyond compare and just the right person to portray the tough, tormented, and responsibility-laden King. What made his character stand out was the fact that despite being the ruler of a big riyasat, Ranaji always had his heart in the right place. He was a compassionate king, a committed lover, a doting grandson and a protective brother-in-law. His concern for Gayatri even when he hated her, his respect for Sethji even when he believed that he & Gayatri had connived for the throne and his unwavering support for Swarnalekha, endeared him to the viewers and critics alike. His transformation from a stern-faced man to a romantic, caring and somewhat mischievious husband was a delight for everyone, both onscreen and offscreen. Thanks to the makers, I can't call him the best husband or the best son but Siddhant's flawless acting made me sympathize with Ranaji even when I didn't feel like. He enacted the multi-shaded King with such finesse, bringing out his joy, anger, anguish and helplessness so effortlessly that everything looked real. From an angry King to a possessive and guilty husband to a passionate lover, Siddhant was always spot on with his impeccable expressions, deep baritone, natural dialogue delivery and understated acting. Needless to say, he and Drashti Dhami made a fabulous onscreen couple who never failed to amaze the fans even when the storyline had become dismal.
Apart from Ranaji, Siddhant's Sagar Khurana (Gustaq Dil) and Karan (Yeh Hai Ashiqui: Love Calling) will always remain my favourites. I just can't explain how much I loved and respected Sagar - a cheerful man, betrayed by two of the most important people in his life and burdened with the responsibility of a child who turned out to be the most painful reminder of that betrayal. A man who silently bore the brunt of a crime he had never committed to ensure the well-being of his child, a man who put his wife's dignity above everything, a man who was shattered but not broken, a man who valued talent and respected and encouraged people irrespective of their social status, a man who was not afraid of sticking to his ideals, a man who could love selflessly and without any expectation - Sagar Khurana was indubitably rare and precious. And Siddhant was unsurprisingly flawless as ever!
Siddhant's Karan from the Yeh Hai Ashiqui episodic Love Calling'also deserves a special mention.Whereas both the story and characterization were fantastic, Siddhant was too adorable as the casual, messy and warm-hearted Karan who matures over time and becomes a committed and supportive lover. The entire episode was peppered with beautiful moments of Karan and his only-over-the-phone girlfriend' Preet but the hospital scene at the end, where they meet for the first time and Karan accepts Preet whole-heartedly without worrying a bit about her physical shortcoming, stole my heart. There was no melodrama but Siddhant and Meher Vij's nuanced performances made it an unforgettable sequence.
To sum it up, these three characters - Ranaji, Sagar and Karan (and also the vampire avatar in PKYEK which I have unfortunately missed) speak volumes of Siddhant's acting prowess and make him one of the finest actors of Indian TV
