Pankaj Singh Tiwari, who essayed the role of a dutiful husband Hari in Zee TV's Shree, finally got a break after more than a year when Shree reached its finale. When he returned to his hometown, boy did he get a royal reception!
Says Pankaj, "Yes, it was indeed heartening to see that everyone had been anxious to see me. My relatives welcomed me with flower garlands and all that jazz! All my cousins took my autograph as if I'm a big hero! Mujhe aise lag raha tha jaise main koi jung jeetke aaya hoon (I felt as if I've returned victorious from an epic war)!"
Pankaj is currently back in the city and is busy grooming himself as he considers other projects. He says, "Right now I'm basically chilling out. But not lazing around. I'm keeping myself busy by reading a lot. 've also been watching a lot of movies lately and taken an interest in hitting the gym. So during this break I'm sharpening my brains and brawns."
So what is it that Pankaj is now looking forward to? "I'm looking for something different which has that spark and excites me. When you do mundane roles, somehow it kills you as an actor," he signs off.
