Ronit Roy Actor Ronit Roy is extremely conscious of the spoken word, lest he ends up saying something that may offend his producers. So he plays safe when asked why certain soaps on television seem so endless, as if itching to last beyond an eternity. "The life of the story depends on the will of the producer and I would rather do my job till the time the story dies its natural death. I have an opinion on this issue but I would like to reserve it," answers the actor who shot to fame the moment he struck a rapport with Balaji's creative head, Ekta Kapoor. With this collaboration, Ronit's failure in films was almost nullified and he gained a fresh identity - as Mihir Virani in "Kyunki Saas Bhi…" and as Rishabh Bajaj in "Kasauti Zindagi Ki." He is now better known by the name of the characters he plays rather than his own name. The Balaji-Ronit association seems to be growing thicker with Ekta picking him up to travel as part of her team to select youngsters for the Balaji/MTV joint production "Kitni Mast Hai Zindagi". On his arrival at Himachal Bhavan in Chandigarh today, he was literally mobbed by star-struck candidates, who did everything they could to gather his attention. They sang title songs from his serials and repeated dialogues behind him. For Ronit, being part of the project, is as much exciting. He said, "This is a chance of a lifetime. When we were young, there were no platforms to display talent. But now, the trend has reversed. We are going to the doorsteps of youngsters, coaxing them into trying their luck. Who knows which one among them grows into a star of the future." Accompanied by Nivedita Basu, the creative director behind the success of "Kasauti Zindagi Ki" and some other Balaji productions, Ronit talked about his own transformation from a film actor to a TV star. "The shift from one medium to another was not conscious. It just happened. Initially I had been called in to play a role in "Kanwal". Then came the chance to play "Mihir" in "Kyunki…", which was the highest rated TV soap during those days. I was apprehensive in the beginning as to whether I would be able to replace Amar Upadhyay, who had been very popular as Mihir. There was also the fear of audience's denial. But with time, everything fell in place and I was accepted."

Now Ronit is featuring in many Balaji's productions, including "Kasauti…". He admits, "So many kids identify with the character of Rishabh Bajaj that they address me as Uncle Bajaj. It gives me immense pleasure to know that I have impacted my audience somewhere along the line. This is the kind of result you get when you have complete independence at work. Our director allows us space to create and perform."
