Hiya everyone!!!! This brand new interview was printed in the
Hitavada ( our city newspaper) for today's entertainment column…..am
posting it just 4 u----ENJOY!
He wanted to become a fighter-pilot but instead chose to make a
career in the big bad world of glamour and acting. His career took
off with "Jaan Tere Naam", a silver jubilee hit, but it soon hit an
air pocket and went into a tail spin. But he has the roaring spirit
of a fighter pilot. He held on. Came out triumphant and scaled new
heights. Meet Ronit Bose Roy, popularly known as Rishabh Bajaj
from 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay" and Mihir Virani from 'Kyunki Saas Bhi
Kabhi Bahu Thi'. He loves cars, practices loyalty and lives one day
at a time. In an exclusive interview he spoke with Ronnie Shah for
the Hitavada. The excerpts-
Q: when were you bitten by the acting bug?
A: I was always attracted towards the glamour and the lifestyle of
film stars. All this razzmatazz and flashy cars and spotlights pulled
me towards it. I was never into acting. In fact, I was stage shy. I
never acted in school or college. But always longed to experience the
lifestyle of the rich and famous. So after completing my engineering
and hotel management , I came to Mumbai to pursue my dream. I'm from
Ahmedabad . When I was there, people around me used to say-'you are a
good looking guy. Why don't you become an actor?' So their comments
fuelled my desire. Today, I would easily give away all I have if I
have a chance to become a fighter pilot.
Q: What happened after 'Jaan Tere Naam'?
A: After the success of 'Jaan Tere Naam', I thought I'd arrived. But
things took a down turn. My first marriage was on the rocks and I was
practically living out of the suitcase moving from one place to
another doing odd assignments. Maybe things happened too fast and too
soon for me. I couldn't handle my life and I take all the blame for
all the mistakes that were made because I firmly believe that it's
your action and your deeds that lead you to a particular situation.
But then que sera sera .Whatever is destined to happen will happen.
My ex-wife and I decided that the marriage wasn't working out for us
and so we decided to part ways. That's my past. I've left my past
behind me and I don't think about it much now. So there was a slump
of about five and a half years after my initial success.
Q: How did you rise back?
A: Besides doing the odd assignments I was getting, I started a
security and protection agency called 'Ace security and protection'.
My company provides security and protection to film stars and film
Gradually my business picked up. And
till today, my company has provided security to many big projects.
For instance-'Lagaan' where we had to manage big crowds.
Q: How did your second marriage happen?
A: After my first marriage, my life was pretty simple .It revolved
around my work, and my daughter from my first marriage whom I love
very much. I had no complaints in life and was moving on pretty
smoothly. I then met Neelam Singh who brought love back into my life.
I started leaning on Neelam for her love and support. My family
members advised me that I should marry her. A year ago, I got married
to her and life has been wonderful ever since.
Q: You are practically shooting from dawn to dusk, how do you manage
A: My wife is my CEO. Neelam was a model and has acted in a few
serials. So she knows how the system works. She manages my security
business and my finances. So I've got the best CEO who works for me
Q: Which character is closer to your heart, Rishabh Bajaj or Mihir
A: It's like choosing between two children. They are like my two
hands. But I would choose Rishabh. Rishabh was a dish which I had to
prepare from the beginning- buy the vegetables, chop them, cook them,
make the dish look and taste good whereas Mihir was a readymade dish
served to me on a platter. So Rishabh's character excites me more and
is closer to my heart.
Q: Your next project 'Swarth' is already creating a buzz in the
industry. What've you got to say about it?
A: 'Swarth' is again a very interesting and exciting project. It's
totally different from what's being aired on channels currently. It
should be on air in a couple of months on Zee TV. Shobha De has
written it. My younger brother Rohit is also acting in it. So I'm
pretty excited about it and feel that I'm on the brink of a boom time
You are!!!! You certainly are on a BOOM dear ronit roy…..boy! I was
so happy on seeing his interview….there was a pic of his from
kyunki….along with smriti!
Way to go ronit!
Hope u enjoyed it…..do send ur feedback-
