who is playing the rough and tough Indu Singh in Hemal Thakkar's Ruk Jaana Nahin
on Star plus speaks about his career and life.what have you to say about your character 'Indu Singh?
Indu singh is a character that every actor would love to play. I consider myself fortunate to have got this role. Very few actors get an opportunity to play such a performance-oriented role. I am grateful to Producer Hemal Thakkar for giving me this opportunity to showcase my talent.How is it been working with co-star Pooja Sharma?Pooja Sharma
is a good performer. For an actor, the "give and take" factor during performance is one of the biggest factors and she does good work. The best part is that she believes in rehearsals. Today very few actors believe in that.
How important is it to get a right role?
Sometimes it becomes difficult. But I feel one should be very choosy about work. Whatever is written for you cannot be snatched. There are many contenders, but the one with talent will always win.How has been your experience till date?
I have always been blessed with good actors and the best directors of the industry. Raajkumar Aaryyan

and now Ruk Jaana Nahin
. I have always done good pivotal and meaty roles, despite television being the medium of females. But I have been able to make it mine! Today right from a spot boy to the producer – everyone loves me because I believe in team work and giving respect to everyone. One should be down to earth. Unfortunately, today's newcomers come with a lot of attitude, I don't know why.What have you to say about producers Hemal Thakkar and Paresh Rawal (Play Time Creation)?
The production house is fantastic in their work approach and is quite organized. Hemal Thakkar is a hand on producer and a through professional. Paresh Rawal
ji is a fantastic actor. It's an honor to work for his production house.
Your personal front in life?
I feel that one should not blow his own trumpet when it comes to relationships. I was in a relationship; but don't want to share any details till I tie the knot!A say on your changed look?
It was required because of the character I am playing.You are passionate about?
I am a pet lover. Since childhood, one can learn a lot from them. As an actor I observe them and learn a lot. It may sound weird, but whenever I am shooting I like to be surrounded by animals – cats and dogs! If and when I become a millionaire, I will open a veterinary center for them.
Have you ever faced a 'Fan' encounter?
So many 'fan' encounters I have been through. But once an eunuch came up to me while I was waiting at a red signal and instead of asking for money, told me that I act really well. I was touched. Your Philosophy for life?
Work is worship. Destiny and fortune are very important. Work hard and live life merrily.
