Diwaker Pundir will now play a father to his three grown up kids played by actors who are actually of his age . However, far from being upset, this young Ex Grasim Mr India, who won the title in 1998, has no qualms in playing a father and is rather upbeat about it.

' It does not matter what age I play on screen. What is more important to me as an actor is how I play it. This is a very sensitive character, and I have taken it as a challenge. This role gives me a wide scope for performing, and that is what I am excited about.'
But isn't he rather too young and too good looking to play a father? ' Not at all! I am a father in real life too, and I have a two year old daughter. So I know what it feels like to be a father. The story of this serial is very realistic. It does not have the glossy look and it's not glamorous. It's a very simple story, and all I pray is that it stays so,' insists an emphatic Pundir.
Surely it is difficult to play a father to same age actors? ' It is not very easy,I agree. But I am an actor first. As I said, I play a very sensitive character, and so far completely immersed in the struggle of being in financial constraints and bringing up his kids. But I am confident I will be a good father to my grown up on screen kids too, and people will like me,' the good looking actor enthuses optimistically.
Quite a few actors touched the roof of popularity donning the silver in their hair. If Hussein and Ronit could do it, perhaps Diwaker can pull it off too. But will it do for Diwaker what Kumkum did for Hussein or what Kasauti/Kyunki did for Ronit?
For that, we will have to let the story of Santaan unfold in the coming months. For now, we wish Diwaker all the best for taking up a difficult role with so much conviction.

Thanks. Great ArticleI'm glad he's taken the challenge to play a character double his age, it shows how dedicated he is to his craft and not to glamor and fame of being a television star!!!
