TellyBuzz's What If had an interesting chat with Barun Sobti aka the rude and heartless Arnav Singh Raizada of Star Plus' Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?

We found out that where how much Arnav Singh Raizada knows what he wants in future, Barun Sobti is quite different from him.

You are sure to have an interesting read this time...

What If...

"I seriously do not know what I would have done had I not become an actor because I know how restless I am in life.

When I was in school, everyone in my class was really intelligent, and looking at them it made me realize that I am going to have the most disastrous future.But I was really good in sports and used to love soccer. But I knew soccer has no good future in India. There was a time when I had even played cricket for Clubs where I played for West Delhi and during those days Karan Wahi was playing for Sonnet.

As time went on, I knew I could not become an engineer and becoming a doctor was  beyond dreams. Had I become a doctor I would have made a pathetic one.

Before I got into acting I was the Collections Manager in a call center and I used to earn a decent living there. But all my friends said I look good and should try my hands in acting and Karan was among them. In fact Karan Wahi, Priyanka Bassi and my wife studied together.

So I thought I should give it a shot and I must say that it was a great risk that has paid off. Even my mother had said that not everyone can become Shah Rukh Khan. But after seeing their son jumping from one job to another, and doing well in everything that I took up, their confidence level was pretty high. Even my wife has the confidence in me.

Today I would like to say that you guys should take what you believe in. If you like acting, take it up especially if you believe in your potential and not just because it might make you happy."

When the actor is playing well, it is well simulates emotions.and now good actors few In the movie, there are many organic actors. They all do naturally, but there you do not have the feeling that they are playing .And Barun Sobti not only behaves naturally, but still good playing. And you know what he feels, and you understand why he responds, empathize with him. In short,into good game the viewer is connected, it fascinates and bad game raises questions. But all this is very subjective The skill of a good actor is to play and fun, and truly.. Somewhere must be emotional, but somewhere, on the contrary, calm. It hard .Because scream, cry, blush - is not difficult. It is difficult to do this for real .Belive your intuition - if you are under the influence of any role.. mean to you this actor - a good actor..Internal existence "- a professional term, and it is part of the acting technique .And for me Barun Sobti brilliant actor...Barun not only played,he lived in each frame, living every emotion, and because he has a many millions of viewers.Yes my dear Baron if you work hard then you too will be as have incredible potential
