Popular actor Chetan Hansraj who is currently seen as Adham Khan in Zee TV's popular show Jodha Akbar will also be seen in Sony TV's newly launched series Encounter. Having played so many negative characters earlier, the talented actor has been roped in to play the character of a gangster in one of the episodic of the show. 

TellyBuzz spoke to Chetan to know more about his character, experience shooting for the show and much more in this conversation.

Talking about his character and experience shooting for the episodic, Chetan told TellyBuzz, "I am playing the character of Mangya whose name is Mangesh Rajmaare and he is a gangster. He used to be a very small kind of a gangster but from then he suddenly becomes one of the topmost gangster of the city. So, this would be his story of becoming a big gangster and how everything ends up in an encounter. The experience of playing Mangya is outstanding.  Mangya's character is shown to be a psychotic one and he is crazy. He has only one passion in life and that is to kill people. He enjoys the whole process of killing someone. He is being supported and is influenced by some political parties and that is why he becomes a very big don. Playing such a role is really amazing and larger than life and I feel that I am shooting for a film. The way it has been shot and directed is really amazing." 

So, did he prepare himself for playing this character? He replied, "Not really! What my director tells me and the creative people explains to me about my character, I go accordingly."  

Chetan has earlier played many negative characters in the previous shows. We wondered whether playing a negative character interests him more over playing a positive role or not. So when quizzed Chetan about it, he said, "Yes playing a negative character is so much fun to do as the character has flexibility to do lot many things. The character goes through so much of ups and downs. I enjoy doing it more over the positive ones but would being an actor I would like to play positive roles as well by doing justice to it. It should be exciting and interesting to play."  

Having being a part of an adventurous reality show Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao, Chetan is also quite an adventurous person in his real life, he told us, "I am very adventurous. I can't sit at home; I take out my family for an adventurous outing or just go out with my friends for some adventurous trip and I also own an adventure sport company. So we do all kinds of adventure sports in Mumbai or outside Mumbai." 

Chetan is quite happy working with the team and he is enjoying a lot while shooting for the show. He concludes saying, "The team is outstanding. It's so professional, loving and respectful team to work with. It's the first time I am working with them and they are amazing. The way they treat their artists is superb." 

We wish you all the best for your role Chetan!
