The dashing actor Gaurav Chaudary who was seen
in Do Saheliyaan - Kismat Ki Kathputliyaan, Kayamath
and Sapno Ke Bhanwar Mein
now seen playing the role of Parmeet in Damini K Shetty's daily soap Bani -
Ishq Da Kalma on Colors
. Here he talks about his journey in this
industry, being a part of Bani - Ishq Da Kalma, on what made him take
up this role and much more.
Let's have a look on what he said...How has your journey been so far in this
I have hardly done three shows but they were
good enough. So accordingly I should say that my journey in this industry was
pretty good. I have seen lots of ups and downs but they are part and parcel in
one's life. I was waiting for something really nice to come my way. It has been
a year that I did my last show and now I have taken up Bani - Ishq Da Kalma.
It is a very promising show and I have started to shoot for the show already. I
am looking forward to the feedback of the audience towards my character.How are you feeling being a part of this
I love this show as I am following the show from
the very start. The concept of the show is very creative, out of the box and
very realistic too. When I heard the story I wanted to take it up as I was
influenced by the storyline. I am feeling really good to be a part of this
show, I hope this character of Parmeet that I am playing brings me lot of
luck in the acting field.
What made you take up this show?
Damini K Shetty came up with a very strong
and promising concept. I liked the concept when I read it and hence I thought I
would take it up. Also, Colors
as a channel to work with was a good opportunity
for me. I was waiting for a good project to come my way and this was the
perfect one I feel.
Are you comfortable playing a married man's role in the show?
I feel that the concept of the show should be
strong. I don't feel there is any harm playing a married man's role. As an
actor we should try and explore acting as much as we can. I feel every actor
should be ready to essay any type of role. But what I like the most about this
show is the concept and the character that I have taken up. It is a family
drama and one day the wedding had to happen.
How similar are you to Parmeet in your real life?
Well, I am pretty much similar to Parmeet in
real life. Parmeet as a character is shown to be very much genuine
and soft-hearted. Even I am the same in my real life too - very much easy
going and more of a workaholic.
Are you a regular viewer of the show Bani - Ishq Da Kalma?
Yes, from the very first episode, I am following
this show. Even if I used to miss on any of the episodes I used to watch it on
YouTube. Now after my entry, I watch the show regularly to find out my
performance, my emotions, dialogues and the way I am projecting myself as it is
Since you have already started shooting for the show, how is it working with
your co-actors and the production house?
Both the lead girls are new in this industry but
despite this they are doing a fabulous job. Shefali and Neha are very
hardworking girls and their work is speaking for them. The senior actors
no doubt are amazing in the show. The show mostly has a Punjabi background and
as we all know that Punjabis are fun loving people, so I love their company
The production house is new but very
professional. It is their first show and they are doing really good on their
part. Very calm, to the point and very honest towards their show. The entire
crew is very easy going, supportive and helpful.Out of the shows that you have done so far,
which one was the best according to you?
Honestly speaking the shows that I have done in
the past did not work for too long. Maybe my luck factor was not good enough
then. So I cannot personally judge as to which was the most best show according
to me as I did not get a chance to work for a long period in any show.What type of roles are you willing to play in
Roles that appeal to me would be on my wish list.
Nowadays we see so much of youth oriented shows which are very much promising.
So I would like to do something like that. If we see even nowadays then movies
like Fukrey, Rock On and the classic Dil Chahta Hai among many others, are
doing wonders. Such opportunities if come my way, I would be more than happy.So are you looking forward to work in movies
Yes why not, if I get a good opportunity than I
will surely take it up. Till now, I haven't got anything of my interest. I am a
hardworking guy and I hope to get something of my interest soon.How did acting happen to you?
It was my decision to get into acting. Basically,
I am a software engineer, but my father always wanted me to become a news
anchor. Delhi has all the news channel headquarters and hence he wanted me to
get into anchoring. I was just one step ahead of him and I planned to come down
to Mumbai and get into acting. I initially started with modelling and that is
how I started getting offers.If you wouldn't be an actor than
you would be?
I would definitely be a Software Engineer.Gaurav in one sentence?
Very confident and hardworking in life.
