Apoorva Agnihotri
who won a lot of fans for himself portraying the popular character of Armaan Suri in Sony's super hit show Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin, is back to the demanding schedules of daily soaps with Rajan Shahi's Bidaai on Star Plus.

The actor who was last seen in Imagine's Radha Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi when it comes to fiction, talks about his long-going association with Rajan Shahi, on his role in Bidaai, about his secret passion and much more in an exclusive conversation with TellyBuzz…

On his journey from Jassi to Bidaai..

The journey has been great, and I have enjoyed every role that I have played so far. I have started shooting for Bidaai, and I am glad to get back to the grinding schedules of television (smiles).

On his association with Rajan Shahi
Well, I know Rajan Sir from the days of Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin. He is a remarkable director, and I am honoured to be a part of his show now. In fact, I know everyone in his team; it's like getting back to your family. Romesh Kalra was the one who directed me in the Sony show. It feels nice to see a growth pattern in the careers of the entire team.

On the reason for accepting Bidaai
The primary reason for accepting Bidaai is Rajan Shahi. Also I got an opportunity of associating myself with a daily soap on Star Plus for the very first time.

On the Kinshuk factor in his life
It is a nice coincidence that we both have a connection from the days of Kaajjal – Sabbki Aankhon Mein Basi. In Bidaai, I will be seen opposite Ragini (Parul Chauhan). I have not really thought much about the fans' reaction yet. I know that Kinshuk Mahajan has played the role of Ranveer very well, and has garnered a great response. At the outset, I hope that people love my character too and accept it.

On television of today
I sincerely want television to come back to the cities (smiles). In the past few years, I have been offered so many roles that were literally two faced. I did not want to be part of shows which had no entertainment value, with all the crying and sad stuff. Bidaai is one such show which has a right mix of everything.

On his character in Bidaai
I play the rich business tycoon, Anmol who comes to the Rajvansh family as a ray of hope at a very critical point when they are down and out. Anmol gives his best shot to take care of the entire family. He will try to bond with everyone in the house. I am basically a happy-go-lucky guy who tries to spread happiness.

On shooting with the Bidaai team
It's been three days since I am shooting with them. It's been fun and I like the atmosphere. I enjoyed shooting for my entry sequence which is a dance performance in a party. I am presently shooting scenes with Parul and the entire family.

On his look in the show
I have discarded my long hair, and have got it chopped. I will have this rich look, and will be seen in the typical suits and pants.

On the shows he likes on television
I love to watch Balika Vadhu as it looks genuine. I also like Desperate Housewives, it is a fantastic show and has a new way of showing a story.

On his secret passion
I want to direct a film before I breathe my last (smiles). I don't worry whether the film I make is good, bad or ugly; my aim is to just direct a film.

On maintaining a low profile always
That's the way I like it. I prefer to be low profile and not media savvy. I believe in talking only when I have something to talk about.

On his personal life
It's been great with Shilpa around. We recently went on a 25 day trip to New York. I also got an opportunity to visit my dream destination – The New York Film Academy.

On extending his family
We would love to, but it will be in the next year.

Message to his fans
Forgive me for all the mistakes I make in the show, and please watch me in the show from tonight.

    u look gr8 in the role

    Great to see Apu back on TV in his handsome avatar. Finally, he shed his long locks for the trimmed look. He knows that short hair works best with his features. Lekin it was sweet of him to keep long hair for so long on request of his Wifey despite it not suiting him.

    Also about his role, i have not watched Bidaai since Shlok left so almost wished he had a new show rather than joining an old one but he is a very capable actor so he'll win over the audience.

    i think we shud give him a chance. im liking his character in bidaai. its not his fault or the production houses fault that kinshuk didnt want to play an older character. it was his choice to leave the show so we should all accept it and welcome apurva :)
