“I play Mahindra, who is a politician, and he can go to any extent to protect his daughter.  When the role was narrated to me I was convinced about it. I have never done a character like this in a daily soap and therefore found Mahindra very intriguing and I was like I must play the character,” he says.

About how much he relates to Mahindra, he adds, “The day you start prepping for a role or when you play a role, you put a part of yourself in the character. In this case too, I relate to the emotion of a father, who can do anything for the happiness of his daughter.”

The TV industry has evolved over the years. And, the actor has also been a witness to some of these changes.
“Yes, the scenario is changing day by day, and new content is coming. The channels, producers and creatives’ are trying different ideas and concepts to hook the audiences to the shows. And they are doing a wonderful job because it is not easy to engage the audiences along with their family without any vulgarity, sexual content or abuses. I think that TV Is doing quite well and it will get better with time,” he adds.

OTT has given competition to TV. “TV is to be viewed with friends and family and OTT basically is for private viewing. The majority of shows on OTT are for private viewing, you cannot watch it with family. OTT is extended entertainment like you have social media and other modes of entertainment. Similarly OTT is one mode of entertainment. The stories that you cannot watch with your family, you can watch on OTT,” he says.
