I am not getting meaty roles cries Rajesh 'Rosesh' Kumar

Rajesh Kumar aka Rosesh Sarabhai of Sarabhai V/S Sarabhai, tickled the funny bone of audiences with his inimitable style of speech and diction. People loved him and the serial for his momma's boy image.

When people were craving for him to do a bit more of Rosesh, Rajesh took a U-turn and picked up a rather serious role in Star Plus' Baa, Bahoo aur Baby. He essays the role of Subodh Thakkar, a theatre artist with a great sense of humour and great love for his wife. "My character in Baa, Bahoo… is different from that of Rosesh in Sarabhai. I chose to do this serial as I wanted to break my image of a close-to-momma nerd, a character that was exclusively made for Sarabhai. Post Sarabhai I was getting the same type of comic roles. But the character of Subodh has helped me break that shell and people have started recognizing me as a versatile actor who can also do serious roles and they have also now heard my real voice", says Rajesh.

On the contrary, Rajesh finds it more difficult to do comedy. Rajesh avers, "I am more uncomfortable doing comedy. If it doesn't work you are finished. You just can't pop up here and there like a joker. There has to be a very good script supporting your comic character. On the other hand with serious roles you can get away with just two tears in your eyes."

This enormously talented actor is also doing a serial for DD1. "I am doing DD1's Grah Dah, a period drama of late 1940's based in Kolkata. This serial is adapted from the novel Grah Dah by famous novelist Sarat Chandra Chaterjee. I am the protagonist in the serial, with different shades to my character. Sometimes I am jovial, sometimes I am a psychopath who can go to extremes for love," informs Rajesh.

Why is he not seen much on television after getting such rave reviews? "It becomes really difficult to figure out dates for any other show. For 20 days in a month I am shooting for Baa, Bahoo…., which just leaves me with ten days and you can't do any show with this less time in hand. With DD it's a different scenario, they shoot only for five-six days that too during the month end. I just wish there were 40 days in a month so that I could work more. Moreover nothing meaty is coming to me," cries Rajesh.

"I have a film in the pipeline. I can't divulge much about the film. Talks are on and it's yet to be announced formally. It's a new production house with a new set-up. It would be a typical multiplex film with all the masala in it. I can just say that mine is a very important character," reveals Rajesh.

With are sure that talent like his will not go unnoticed on the big screen. Here's wishing him the very best.
