What are the shows you have done?

I have done shows like Shaurya Aur Suhani, CID, Aahat.

How does it feel to have a new Gopi in the serial?

Initially it was a very strange feeling, because me and Giaa Manek have
worked for two years. Between us, we have some of best memories with
the show. Off the screen also we are great friends. When you work
together for so many hours everyday you will become friends. I will
miss her badly. When Devoleena Bhattacharjee stepped in it was a completely new show
for her. For her also it will take some time to get tuned. Both of us are
trying hard to make the chemistry work between the characters.

You had a good tuning with Gia, now how are you adjusting with Devoleena?

As an actor extending a comfort factor to your co-star is the main
thing. I am trying my best to provide Devoleena with that.
Incidentally we have some romantic scenes so for that we need to have
that chemistry between us. The romantic scenes should look realistic.
Off the camera we chat and discuss a lot - I tell her if you want to
discuss any particular scene with me, please do that. Exchange of
ideas it is very important. I want our chemistry to be the best in the

When you signed up for the show, did you ever think it would be popular especially since it was in the 7 pm slot?

Never had I expected the show to be this successful because our
time-slot was quite early. I just hoped that the show does well as our
story had an unusual concept and we have really worked hard for it. I
am really happy that people like the show a lot.  What has to work
works.Tv industry and audiences are unpredictable at times.

How would you rate this character as compared to the ones you played previously?

Ahem is definitely the best role in my career. Whatever I am today it is because of this character only. Ahem is not a very regular daily soap character.
He is an arrogant business man who is a mama's boy. It's always tough
to enact a complex character than a sweet loving kind of guy.  I guess
Ahem is being liked by the audience the way it has been written by the
writers.    Where ever I go people recognize me because of the

Are you thinking of doing any other shows? Why haven't you taken up any reality show?

At this point I am satisfied with my show Saathiya - but given a
chance I would not mind participating in a reality show. I would
always love to portray an anti-hero character like Salman Khan did in
Baaghi or what Sanjay Dutt played in Yaalgar. I also liked Aamir
Khan's character in Ghajini. These characters demand a special talent
within you - that challenges me as an actor. I would like to
participate in reality shows which are adventure and sports based. I'm surely open for Fear Factor

Do you feel good looks are important for a male actor?

In acting good looks is just a factor. If you can't act good looks
can't help you. On the other side if you are good looking you can
charm the audience with that. But eventually you have to work on your
acting skills. People often ask me how I will rate myself as an actor
- I would give myself 7-8 out of 10.

Your look has been same throughout in the show? Dont you feel stagnant? Don't you feel your look needs a makeover?

Ahem Modi is a corporate guy who is in senior position. He has to
dress in blazers and suits. That has been the look kept in the show
right from the beginning. For me also it was for the first time,
because off the screen I am very much a tshirts-jeans guy. Feeling of
stagnancy has not yet caught me, because I enjoy playing Ahem. But
given a chance I would like to see Ahem in more colourful suits and
shirts. Whether Ahem needs a makeover or not, I leave that to my fans.

Don't you think your show is more woman dominated? What do you feel about it?

Most of the shows on Indian television are woman oriented. In our
family also women are the boss! They are the home maker and decide
looking at everybody's comfort level. I have no problem working in the
current setup. Look at the brightest side of it - Ahem is as popular
as Gopi and that is more than enough for me.

What changes you have noticed in the industry over the years?

In the last five years professionally I have seen many ups and downs
and struggled a lot. Now I have finally made a name which is a great
self gift I have got with God's blessings. Concept wise the options
are more now; actors can pick and choose their projects. Competition
has become much tougher, you have to be the best in your own way.

Which programs you love to watch and why?

I like to watch shows like Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon?, CID,
Saubhagyabati Bhava - Iss pyaar ko is the perfetct love story,
chemistry between the lead is very good. CID I love because of its
story telling and Saubhagyabati Bhava for the message on domestic
vilolence,I also love to watch Karanvir's performance in that.

Even with 'New' Gopi, Saath Nibhana Saathiya is way ahead of IPKKND in TRPS!!

It was due to Shyam track that IPKKND lost lot of viewers...
Hopefully, now the TRP for IPKKND will start to climb up again.!!
