Vishal Malhotra, the very likeable Dr. Ranganath in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge already has plans to move on in life. "This was my first daily soap for television and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I also think I am very lucky to be a part of Kuch Toh Log Kahenge which is a remake of Dhoop Kinare. I have childhood memories attached to Dhoop Kinare as my grandmother used to watch it. What also worked for me was that it was not a typical daily soap."
After his hectic schedule of 20 -25 days every month shooting for Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, Vishal is planning to take a month long break before he thinks of taking up any other work, whether it is ads, TV or films. However, he has already made his plans ahead, "I have signed up to become a brand ambassador for Harpic and will start shooting for it soon. The response for my serial was humongous and that I think is also one of the reasons I have been chosen. After taking a breather, I would love to continue TV and also go back to my first love – films."
"If it is on TV I want to do something bigger, grander than this. I would love to do a prime time show next as one has to move towards growth. In line is also Entertainment ke liye Kuch bi karega – Season 5 which might come up after IPL and I am waiting to host it along with Mona Singh" says Vishal.
Once the serial comes to an end Vishal who has never been committed to a fiction show for so long says that he will miss the people around the most, "When you are working on a daily soap you hardly get time to go home but you end up spending the best times with the people you are working with. They become an integral part of your life and I will miss them the most. Also getting up every day to go to work which for us actors is the sets is something we get habituated to and that is something I will miss too."
