As the race for 9x is full on, some of Television's big names have bagged meaty roles in the fresh lineup of serials that the newly launched channel offers. With Production Houses like Balaji Telefilms trying to broaden their vision with their new shows for 9X, the actors getting a call from Ekta are sure to grab it with both hands. Another actor who has bagged a role in Ekta's next for 9x, is Mamta fame, Anand Suryavanshi. The actor will now be seen in a cameo role in the to-be-launched serial, Kya Dill Main Hai, which stars Aamir Ali and the new find, Abigail. The serial is slated to start from December 1st, and will occupy the weekend prime time slot of 8pm on Friday and Saturday.
We ask Anand Suryavanshi himself, about his role in the show, “I
play a character called Aniket, opposite Anita. Aniket is a guy next
door, who is quite positive. I like the character, he’s very simple and
down to earth. It’s a 10-15 episode cameo,to begin with, but I am not
sure yet, will just go with the flow”, says the actor.
A lesser known fact is that Anand was a part of Balaji’s Kasauti Zindagi Kii five years ago, and is now back with Balaji. “Its
great to be back with Balaji. Well, I wouldn’t say that technically I
am back, because it is just a short role, but yes, I havent worked with
them after Kasauti and that was like five years ago, so yes, its been a
big long gap.” When asked about the race for 9X, he replied, “I
got this opportunity and I liked the character, and that’s why I went
for it. 9X is a new emerging channel, it has certainly opened up
opportunities for all, and I wish the channel the very best.”
After the serial Mamta ended, Anand was busy with rehearsals for an English play. "Now, it looks like the play might not happen, as my dates are clashing", says Anand as he signs off.
