family. We are trying to disrupt their life, it’s the typical family
situation like every Indian joint family.
What about your character and how does your character fit in the whole story track?
my character is still developing, the serial has just started, and yet

actor playing that role.
What’s your dream role?
Something like James Bond.
How is the story going to evolve now with you?
It all depends on the TRP. Story on television keeps changing.

goals and dreams. All the best to this talented star on behalf of
