Shaleen Bhanot created a stir recently with his pyrotechnic stunts in 'Sajda Tere Pyar Mein'. Tellybuzz spoke to him at length discussing his love and career. Read on to know what makes Shaleen Bhanot tick..

What prompted you to play Ranveer's character?

It is very unlike me and as an actor I want to push my limits. His character is very layered and I wanted to portray a different character. The show is not a saas-bahu saga and it attempts at changing the look of the television. It is another dimension altogether.

Name one similarity and one dissimilarity with Ranveer's character?

I smile a lot and Ranveer just doesn't flash his teeth. Similarity would be that we both are patriotic. I might not be as patriotic as Ranveer but I do walk the line of patriotism.

Daljeet Bhanot and you are both in an industry that is very hectic and time consuming. Are there any insecurities ever?

I try and not go to Daljeet's sets. It is good that when we get home we have two different perspectives and lots to talk about. It is like going to two different offices and then gossiping when you get home. I'm friends with 'Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon?' team and there is no reason to be insecure.

What is that one habit of Daljeet's that really irks you?

She loves me too much and I'm a pampered husband. I feel that I'm turning into a spoilt brat!

What was the last thing you bought for Daljeet ?

I bought her a car on Valentine's day !

What is your dream role on Indian Television?

There is a long list of roles I'd love to do. I feel I have just begun and I'm exploring my potential. With my last fire sequence, I think I would like to do action next.

If you were not an actor, what would you be?

I belong to a business family and I know what the other side of the coin is. I'm into real estate business that has its presence both in India and Australia. So, I'm sure I'd be a business man.

You are a very fit actor. What is your fitness regime?

If you asked me this question five years back, I would have said regular workout. Nowadays all you have to do is get a trainer and dietician. They will look after all your cravings and you are set!

What is the next dream destination on your radar?

I'd love to take Daljeet to Bora Bora Islands. It is beautiful!

What is your off day like?

These days I'm shooting for 16 hours , so whenever I do get time I sleep. I try and spend as much time as possible with Daljeet. Spending time with her means that you watch a lot of TV, for she is the kinds who has watched Madagascar 13 times.

What is your message for the fans on

I adore the fans on India-Forums and it has been a long association for me. Mango from Canada sends me a card every year without fail on my birthday and I have known her for six years. I try and log on whenever possible and try to imbibe all the suggestions.  Fans on I-F rock!

I just adore Shaleen and Daljeet.. Daljeet pampering Shaleen sounds so much like our darling Anjali Di.. They are such cutisies.. How I wish Shaleen was playing the role of an honest and loving husband of Daljeet in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon.. Then they could have spend more time with each other.. But then I guess the script demanded a strong negative character who also plays a catalyst in the love story of the lead and it would have been waste of Shaleen's talent to play parallel lead to Barun.. So happy with their roles and love this real life couple.. Would love to see this real life couple in some serial romancing each other.. That would be such a treat to watch.
