What gives you the kick? Writer or actor?
Acting is more satisfying. Yes I enjoy writing but acting gives more pleasure and infuses passion.
An actor has to perform on a script, role, written by a writer?
Certainly a writer has a bigger responsibility than the actor but the audience sees the actor saying the lines. Personally I feel the reaction from the audience as an actor is more satisfying.
The web series Permanent Roommates gave you an instant recognition. Second part is getting plan. You are very much in it. Your role is KAJARYA is said to be different and strong. Why the need to do an adult comedy like GUUDU KI GUN?
First of all GUDDU KI GUN is not an adult comedy. It's not on the lines of GRAND MASTI, KYA KOOL HAI HUM. There is no double meaning dialogue, its funny and the humour is situational. The title may sound mischievous but it's healthy.
Does starring in web series fulfills the financial requirements?
A proper module as such for web series is not in practice at present but things are getting planned and hopefully a proper model will be in practice.
How you landed in tinsel town?
I was not at all interested in studies. At the age of 16, I started working in the editing department of shows like Rishtey etc.. editing promos etc. writer Vyas is my father one day he took me to Prithvi Theatre and there i realized what I was missing from life. I was sitting in a close room of a studio while real action was happening outside. I decided I wanted to be an actor.
What was your father's reaction?
He started worrying again like any father. Was bad in studies. At least I was working in the studios fending for myself. But I managed and began my life as an actor in theatre.
Acting in theatre, tv serials, films, web series - PERMANENT ROOMATES (as actor) and BANG BAAJA BAARAT (as writer), suppose gets a fabulous response and Aditya Chopra offers you a movie as the main story writer and you also get an offer for a role in his next biggie starring a superstar. What will you pick?
Acting. its acting always the first choice for me.
