The handsome Vishal Gandhi who was last seen in Hats Off Productions' daily soap Ek Doosre Se Karte Hai Pyaar Hum on Star Plus, is waiting to grab the right opportunity.

"I took a break from the industry for two months after November when my show Ek Doosre Se Karte Hai Pyaar Hum concluded. I am back again in action but all I am waiting is for the right opportunity to knock on my door. I have been offered many projects on television but I haven't made a decision yet since I am very keen towards Films. It doesn't mean that I don't love Television. Television has always been my first love and I will always continue working on the small screen", confessed Vishal.

Talking about his career in films, he said,"I am in the middle of talks for a movie. I am working on my body for it now because a good physique has a lot of importance in Bollywood. There will always be a demand by the story line for a character and how it is supposed to look and an actor has to live up to it."

Asserting his opinion about replacing an actor on a show Vishal said, "I somehow don't like the idea of replacement much. Recently, I was offered a replacement role but I rejected as I think the idea doesn't work with me. For example, if we take Balika Vadhu which is one of the best shows on Indian Television, childhood Anandi (Avika Gor) getting replaced is understood, but after that watching a grown up Anandi (Pratyusha Baneerjee) getting replaced after an entire year, when the viewers have accepted her as Anandi is something I cannot digest. Toral Rasputra is no doubt a superb actress but the concept doesn't work for me. Same goes with Giaa Manek too who got replaced by Devoleena Bhattacharjee in Star Plus daily soap Saath Nibhana Saathiya. If you are replacing a childhood character as grown up than that is most acceptable and understood but it is hard to accept a grown up character getting replaced all over again. It personally doesn't work with me" he concluded.

We wish Vishal Gandhi all the very best for his career.

Krishma Solanki.

    totally agree with you. It is very difficult for viewers to accept replacement actors when they have full heartedly accepted an actor in a role and are used to seeing them. The decision to replace Giaa Manek from saathiya was totally wrong and I just could not connect a new face with the character.

    ridiculous replacement of pratyusha who was lokpriya face of colors with epxressionless toral. i fully agree with u. we cant accept such dumb replacements. so true. but for some ppl its hard to accept the bitter truth. but truth is truth whether u like it or not. toral is a bad choice for anandi.

    You said it right Vishal.. As an actor you don't like the idea of replacements for grown up characters. We viewers simply hate that idea..

    I completely agree with you, that is why I stop watching BV. Prats will never be forgotten, and Toral will never be accepted as Anandi.

    Vanity and stupidity is replaced by the main actress, on a whim. And then spread lies about her, because he can not defend himself. The young actress, fragile body, but of great talent, 3 years you are forced to do heavy manual labor for 10-15 hours of filming. Acting is an art, spiritual work. When no longer able to stand up - he kicked you like a dog.
