Rohit Purohit baffled the audience with his tough looks and his shining green eyes as Aryaman in COLORS' Aise Karo Naa Vida. And today he is seen in a new image of a boy next door, the naughty and an aspiring director in Zee TV's Sanskaar Laxmi.

In this candid chat, the actor speaks about the new look where he hides his real eyes behind the black lenses.

Enjoy the read!!! 

Can you please something about yourself; your upbringing?
I am basically from Jaipur and it's been five years in Mumbai. I started off in the industry assisting in films and I was the body double of Hrithik Roshan in Jodhaa Akbar. I purposely did not try for films as I myself was not confident; also I felt that rather than doing small roles in movies, it is better to do a good one in television.

Sanskaar Laxmi has premiered now,  how do you feel?
I feel great because the response has been good so far and viewers like the work. At the same time, they miss my natural green eyes as I am wearing black lens throughout.

How do you feel portraying one of the leads?
It is actually a good experience because even if you get appreciated  a lot for  a negative role, a protagonist always has another vibe and being one indeed makes a difference. Also at the same time I feel that being a positive character is much more challenging than being negative. When I was doing Aise Karo Naa Vidaa, I hardly had dialogues, as Aryaman is supposed to be an introvert. All I had to do was to just express my emotions through the face and at times shout at people. On the contrary Sooraj is a fun loving guy and to portray good on screen is a bit difficult for me.  

How do you relate yourself to Sooraj?
I cannot relate much to the character of Sooraj because he is very naughty and sometimes tricks the family for his benefit, and the family loves him a lot for his naughty acts. He gets himself into certain problems because of his blind love for Ragini, but the funny part is that he manages to somehow dodge from them.

What was the main challenge when you took up the role?
Initially I had the difficulty to adjust myself to the black lens, and to be frank I was planning to drop the show because of this as I had the experience of wearing lens for sometime in Aise Karo Naa Vidaa. Gradually the channel convinced me for the role and the significance of the lens for a protagonist. Now I am happy about the role because I am getting a good response from the audience.

Was it difficult to transform yourself into Sooraj from Aryaman?
Not much, because being Aryaman was not much of an effort and the family comprised of only the mother, brother and him. But the family in Sanskaar Laxmi is really big and I could relate myself to the situations of the show. But being natural is also tough on camera.

You have portrayed yourself in a negative as well as a positive character; what do you enjoy most?
I enjoy being negative as it is fun to portray the grey shade, and I got really good comments and views for being Aryaman.   

What preparations have you done for the character Sooraj?
There was not much of a preparation for the character as the character is very lively and has too much masti involved in it. I just need to have fun on the sets.

What do you think is the USP of the show?
The USP of the show is that after Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, there has not been a complete joint family story wherein the story revolves around the various characters associated with the show. Our cast consists of various experienced actors who prove their best in each and every scene of the show.  

Do you take this show as your big break?
I started my career with Kasamh Se where I did a cameo and then I did Aise Karo Naa Vida. Today I am happy that I am portraying Sooraj in Sanskaar Laxmi.

How is your rapport with the other co-actors of the show?
I have a dearly relation with all the actors in the show and we have great fun on the sets. Since most of the actors are Gujaratis, they converse in Gujarati and initially I used to get lost in the conversation. But now I have started picking up the language. We do share food and have lunch together.  

How do you feel working with an experienced writer like Rajesh Joshi?
I have never seen a person like Raju Bhai in my entire career.  He is a great person and being in his home production is really a blessing.

There are three leads in the show where Aamir Dalvi plays an autistic; how has been the experience working with them?
I feel that Aamir is one of the best actors in television now and the way he portrays the autistic character is really motivating..

Any memorable moments from the show?
Each day is a memorable day for me and the show has just taken off.
