How excited are you to be back on screen with Alt Balaji show Hai Taubba? How did you bag the role?
Balaji is like a family to me now, working with them since a long time is like working with your loved ones.
Hai Taubba is a story, which has all the emotions which one could feel, and after doing a few grey shades / character I am really excited to play this emotional one which has the same sex love story.
What does your character look like in the show Hai Taubba? How relatable it is?
I am playing Nitin’s character who is a masculine physiotherapist, looks like a strong alpha man but from inside he is really very emotional, falls for a taxi driver Amit. We will see an unsaid love story between them and the separation will make people cry.
You have done TV shows as well, how different was doing a show for OTT platform?
Yes, I have done TV shows as well and I felt, life gets monotonous while doing TV. And the content we created on web now a day really satisfies the hunger of creative minds. We play a lot of character in a short span of time and explore a lot.
How was the experience working with the co actors?
It was fun working with all of them. When you go outdoors for work, you enjoy more and spend a lot of time together while working and shooting, so you make friends, which is a good part of it. Even chilling in Goa after the packup was a great fun. Overall have some good memories of screen as well.
