Today we dedicate our column to Tellywood actors who have experienced adventure and thrill at some point in their life. This week we have the very young and talented Jaskaran Singh on our hot-seat, who is currently seen as Mach-Mach in Life OK's super-hit show Do Dil Ek Jaan.
Let's see what does Jaskaran has to share with us...
What is adventure according to you?
Well, there is no precise definition of adventure for me. I'm not a toofani kind of guy, who believes that adventure means trying your hands at doing stunts. I consider adventure as something that excites me and something that I would love to do.
Give us an insight about your most adventurous day...
Before stepping into the acting profession, when I was working with a corporate company 3G, my colleague Param once said he is planning for a bike ride trip from Mumbai to Ladakh. I found the thought so interesting that I decided to accompany him. Right away, we both went to a nearby showroom, where in I sold off my bike and bought a brand new Royal Enfield for myself and within a week we left for our excursion. It was like a journey to heaven. Adding more thrill to our expedition, the front brakes of both our bikes failed and we managed to ride the mountains only on clutch and gear. It was so much of fun which I will never forget.
Which is your favorite adventure sport?
One of my most favorite adventure sports is River Rafting. In fact, I have had a thrilling whitewater river rafting experience couple of years back in Uttaranchal. I enjoyed the fact that how much ever efforts you take, the water takes you through the way it wants.
Any one thrilling adventure on your wish list?
I want to jump off from an aircraft (skydiving) in a similar manner to what was picturized in the movie Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Adding to my wish list, I would also love to try scuba diving sometime in my life.
Who would you want to take for a thrilling activity from the industry? Why?
As a matter of fact, I have only had a handful of good friends in this industry. However, if given an opportunity to take someone for a thrilling activity, I would take my cousin brother Karan Singh Grover along with me. As it is whenever we get a minimum of three day's holiday, Karan and me push out to Goa and have our share of fun.
