"After a point, it does get monotonous. You always want to try different things. I have been travelling a lot because of the show. And whenever you go out and meet people, you feel reassured," he told IANS.
"Jigar is a part of my life. I keep thinking what would I do when the show is not there? I have no idea what I will do! The show is very special and close to my heart," said the 27-year-old.
"Saath Nibhana Saathiya" went on air in May 2010 and the actor feels lucky to be part of the long running popular show about a joint Gujarati family.
"I don't think I have the right to say anything bad about the show. It has been doing really well. It has given me everything, so I am happy to be part of it," he said.
After playing the sweet and simple character of Jigar, Vishal wants to do a negative role.
"I have never tried a negative character. I would love to do that," he added.
Films are also on his to do list.
