Sanjay Gagnani, who plays the role of Prithvi in the show ‘Kundali Bhagya’, is surprised with fans tagging him as ‘Villainero’ on social media. “The audience of my show has given me a name which is called ‘Villainero’ which stands for Villain Hero(laughs),” he said, adding, “So, a lot of them see me as a villain, a lot as a hero and the rest as a Villain and a Hero.”
“Unlike many other actors I have managed to keep myself from being typecast as of now and l feel blessed that I don’t have to break any kind of image that I’ve created on screen. The credit for that completely goes to my entire team and especially the writers because they have portrayed me in such a manner that only my activities are evil,” shares the actor, whose show airs on Zee TV.
The actor adds, “When you look at Prithvi Malhotra, he doesn’t look like an antagonist and his look kind off contradicts his activities. The audience and the producers are very intelligent, and hence I feel they have been able to differentiate and understand that the character and my personality is not at all restricted to just being an antagonist. Honestly, I have no fear of getting typecast because, if I could be casted for a villain’s role despite not looking like one, I am confident that any other producer will cast an actor like me who has played a villain, in a hero’s role as well.”
