Onscreen: Barun Sobti is a BRILLIANT actor. That is one of the main reasons I love him. Who would believe that Shravan and ASR are played by the same actor? He was perfect in both those roles, more than perfect, no one could replace him ever in those roles. Goes to show his versatility and that is a proof of his acting skills. He has the potential to make it big in Bollywood because he is handsome like we can all agree he is unbelievably good looking! He has the X factor onscreen that any actor who is successful in Bollywood has, the X factor the Khans have, Ranbir Kapoor has. That X factor. He can do all times of emotions like we have seen. Probably will have to improve his dancing skills a bit but thats no problem. Also he has facial expression for everything! Some of the best facial expressions ever. His hindi and english both are perfect. So I can see him being a Bollywood star. Excited to see his movies! But I do feel like he needs a bigger break with KJo or YRF or someone like that but hopefully his 2 upcoming films will get him that break!
Now offscreen: He is a little awkward in interviews and interactions with fans BUT THAT IS WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT HIM. Goes to show that he is humble and not pretentious at all. He acts like how he is, which is that he is shy until he spends more time with someone (like all his friends & coworkers say). And then, his sense of humour, the guy is an entertainer offscreen as well! We have seen his funny side offscreen with the people he is comfortable with! He is a real jokester seems like it and loves to party and have a good time which I love in a person. He loves his wife and family and his friends! Everyone had a good word to say about him on the sets of IPKKND ! He is very respectful of his fans and their love for him and does what he does to please them but he also knows to draw the line and make sure his own life choices, his own health comes in first (his decision for quitting ipkknd which I respect him for doing). Yes us fans are important but his own self is more important. I also liked the fact that (and this goes for Sanaya as well) him and sanaya always remained bestfriends and still are, it's just we dont see it on tv, DESPITE of those alleged rumours and linkups. Did not let stupid stuff and ideas of so-called fans get in the way. I love his friendship with her and his love and care for her! It is genuine. When the Chanchan scandal happened, he stood by Sanaya and even gave in a word about her to press. It was true and very politically correct which I also love about him. He knows what to say in his interviews and how much should be said. I don't know him personally so I cant say anymore but from what I've seen, he seems to be a good hearted, funny, hardworking individual who is a great friend, a good husband and very professional and has goals and knows how to make the right choices for him.
And one last reason I'll always love barun, kind of silly but, remember the scene in IPKKND when Khushi is explaining Arnav on how to convince Manorama for Payash marriage and she goes all Kuch Kuch Hota Hain on him. His reply 'WHAT CRAP' - those two words , that expression and delivery of those words in a big enough reason to love Barun Sobti!
(I just wrote an essay of Barun Sobti lol)
