We spoke to Sachin Parikh
to share his journey
from theatre actor to television to producer. Let's see what he said..How did your career start?
all started with Gujarati theatre. My first theatre show was with the
veteran and ace actress Sarita Joshi
and then I got an opportunity to
work with her daughter Ketki Dave
who also is a theatre artist. Till
around 2006, I was only associated with Gujarati theatre.What inspired you to become an theatre artist?
belong from a theatre background. My father used to produce and act in
theatre plays and that is what inspired me towards the theatre and
acting. Acting has always been my first love and will always stay so. From my family background itself I got an opportunity to land into
theatre, and I got to explore the artistic side of my dream. It is a great feeling being an theatre artist and more on to be a producer for the same. As an actor you are limited to your skills
as you have to go with the script but as a producer you get to explore
more and learn as you can use your creativity.You are currently the producer of the play Rishton Ka Live Telecast, tell us something about the same?
I said earlier that theatre is not new to me I have been acting in
plays and later when got an opportunity to become a theatre
producer I was more than willing to grab it. This is my second play as a
producer. My first play as a producer was Saath Rahega Always in 2010. It was a hit show and its popularity gave me satisfaction. We did around 25 shows for the same out of which mostly
were all over the country and one was overseas in Dubai. It had Padmini
Kolhapure as the main lead and there were television actors Mahesh
Thakur and Tina Parekh too. For Rishton Ka Live Telecast it has been 3
shows so far and they have all been houseful too. The show is going very
good and hope it stays so further too.Tell me something about the concept of your shows?
Both my plays shows have similar concept, just the way pf portraying is
different. Saath Rahega Always and Rishton Ka Live Telecast both the
shows are on giving a social message. Where the first one was focused on the elderly lot, the second one is also similar but with a bit of a
comedy factor showing today's generation. You have been a television actor too, so how is it acting in television?
there is not much difference, when you love acting then whichever
platform you get to act is an opportunity to prove yourself as an actor
and explore your acting skills. Apart from that it is a fantastic experience doing
television shows. It is a vast media where you get a chance to become
the household name. Hindi television has altogether a different reach
all over the world, you get more recognition and your work is appreciated.Do you plan to produce any television show too?
As of now there are no such plans but if I get an opportunity than surely I will. (smiles)What do you like more - acting or producing?
is likeness for both as I love doing both. Acting will always be my
first love and I will never stop myself from acting even if I continue with production. Being a producer gives me a creative satisfaction. I enjoy
whatever I do and find pleasure and satisfaction in the same as I choose
the paths to walk myself.Krishma Solanki.
