Veteran actor Ali Asgar
who is playing Captain
Vikram in Jeannie and Juju is confident that the Indianized version of this
American concept will work out as he feels that this has universal appeal. He
explains, "After all, everyone loves a fantasy tale."
He is full of praise for his co-star Giaa Manek.
He says, "Giaa has been the cutest co-star that I have ever had. She comes with
no baggage, attitude or vanity- she comes with her pure innocence, talent, zest
and chirpiness instead. She has the perfect comic timing. For a change I have
an actress almost as tall as me, so we can be in the same frame."
Ali, who is extremely popular for his roles in
comedy and serious drama, is looking forward to doing a negative role. He
explains, "It shouldn't be like a gang war type character but like Mother
India's Sukhilal. I want to do a character so that people should hate the
character and not Ali Asgar
. People would for instance hate Pransab the
character so much they never named any child as Pran."
However as of now watch Ali Asgar
as the lovable
Captain Vikram Khanna who is besotted with Jeannie in Jeannie Aur Juju
show launches on SAB TV
