How did you decide to do this show and play this character?
This was a last-minute decision. I don't do television that much. At night I got a call that you have to come tomorrow, do the look test, and start shooting. I think actors have very different minds, sometimes you take an instant decision and they feel that this thing should be done and they do it. I had never worked with Shashi Sumit Production before so I had to work with them because I had heard a lot of good things about them. It takes some time in the beginning, I liked the fact that my character was negative. To play a negative character you have a lot to experiment with. In a positive character, you have limitations, but I think this is not the case in reality. I had to do realistic things and that's why I said yes to the character. Like today's scene, I have tried to do a little comedy in it, I can experiment with it, and I can do something new by getting inspired by Khilji.
How has your experience been working with the rest of the cast?
It's been good. I hope that he also has a good experience working with me. I don't know when you ask him he will tell. We haven't talked that much yet, I stay in my make-up room only. There was a time when I used to talk a lot, I still do but I try to stop myself from talking too much on the set. Earlier, I used to talk to people a lot, go out with them, and have parties, but I have recently joined the ongoing show here. One person I already know here is Karanvir Grover. It feels good working with him. Right now things are developing, and as it progresses I will get to know more people, like today was my first scene with Tara.
What would you like to say to your fans?
Fans were waiting for a long time for me to do something. Now I want to do something so that people know me because of my performance. Earlier people knew me because of my looks and screen presence but now I want people to know me because of my work.
