Shahab Khan: I totally connect to my character on Tujhse Hai Raabta
Actor Shahab Khan, who is part of Sonali and Amir Jaffar’s Tujhse Hai Raabta, loves being part of the show. The actor says that the title is enough to create people’s interest. “It’s really unique, now as people are watching the show, they are getting to know that why the title is ‘Tujhse Hai Raabta'. Initially, no one knew what the word Raabta meant but from the time this show has started people are getting to know more about Raabta and what it means. Raabta is not a word which we use in our day to day life. It really talks about that one special relationship,” he says.
Talking about his character, he adds, “I am playing Sayajiirao Deshmukh, he is a very positive person. He is the head of the family but everything works as per the wishes of his wife Ahilya Deshmukh. After his son has gone away, he has become a little negative but he is not a bad person at heart. He feels that his son went away because of Anupriya and if she wanted she could have stopped him. So that sourness between Sayaji and Anupriya is just because of this reason.”
The actor adds that he can really relate to his character and is comfortable on the show. “I totally connect to my character. I am a very positive and calm person in real life as well. I always had a Raabta with this show as this is my second show with Full House media. I have also worked with Shagun before also, so when I met him here, I felt really happy. I felt the same even when I met Savitaji,” he says.
Shahab loves to see himself play a grey character. “I have never done a grey shade before. So here I get to do a little of grey shade in between and doing that is a compliment for myself as I am doing something different for the first time,” he says.
The actor likes working with Sonali Jaffar and Amir Jaffar as well. “It's a really good experience. When I worked with them for the first time as well, I loved it. Sonali ma’am and Amir are really amazing people. I have done a show written by Sonali ma’am before as well. It was called Meri Aashiqui. As a production house, I did Devanshi with them and it was a really good experience,” he says.
