Amit Varma of Kittu Sab Jaanti Hai fame hits the small screen once again with old pals - JD Majethia and Aatish with Baa Bahu aur Baby. After a light hearted comedy in Khicchdi and a melodramatic character in Kittu, Amit is back with a character much different from what he’s done earlier.
The Telly Buzz team talks to actor who’s on his way back to Indian Television after a long while…
How is your character in Baa Bahu Aur Baby?
I am playing a very different character in the show, of a silent
charmer, a very quiet and intense guy. It’s not a comic role as
one would expect with a show like such. I play a typical today’s person
who is intelligent and who believes in ideologies. He is much of a
thinker, and a painter by profession.
We heard you will be playing the love interest of Baby, is it true?
Yes, I will be playing Baby’s love interest. Due to some demanding situation, I land up in the Thakkar family, and I spot Baby there and fall head over heals for her. Slowly, Baby also likes this guy, and the way their logical love develops should be fun to watch.
How is it to work with Hats Off?
JD and Aatish have been very good friends of mine. I had a blast working with them in Khicchdi. Even when I was not working with them, we were in touch. Now it is great to get back on the professional front as well.
We are seeing you in Television after a while now. What made you busy?
I was in Toronto shooting for a Vidya Balan and Shahid Kapoor film,
an Aziz Mirza film, in which I have a substantial role to play. As soon
as I got back, I was offered this role, and I took it instantly.
Getting back to Baa Bahua Aur Baby, how is it that an intense character like Birju will find a place in a fun-riot family?
This is the brilliant work of Aatish and JD, and they have yet again
etched a fabulous storyline, where a serious character will come face
to face with a bunch of fun loving people, and what will follow is a
fun riot, totally hilarious..
