Tell us about your transition from Bollywood to Television.
Bollywood has always been a priority but then you need a right character to play. So when I found a right role that was offered by Sony SAB, I was more than happy to do it. Television is now as big as Bollywood and when you get the right medium to show your acting skills one must take the opportunity. The character was very funny though he plays a villain in the show but his personality is nothing of that sort. I liked the character and so I decided to do Dil Deke Dekho.

Why do we always see you in comedy?
I think I am good at comedy and that’s why I am always offered comedy roles. Every actor has their own genre. I do have different shades to my acting skill but I think right now comedy comes to be far better than any other role. I also think people love to see me in comedy roles. As I mentioned before I liked the character more that’s why I chose to do Sunny in Dil Deke Dekho. If I get to do something different and the role is really promising then I would definitely do it.

Tell us more about your Character as Sunny in Dil Deke Dekho.
Sunny is a wicked character. Though he doesn’t have evil plans to hurt someone but he would definitely annoy the person he disapproves. He is a cute villain who creates problems but will not physically harm someone.

How does comedy come to you?
Comedy is not easy as it appears. It’s easy to make someone cry but making someone laugh is a tough task. There is a good comedy and a bad comedy i.e. either people will laugh at your gag or they would find it boring. It’s a struggle to get the good comedy out. It’s a combination of music, a good co-actor, a good script and your skills. It’s a joint effort I would say.

Who is go to person on the set?
I share a good equation with Rahul (Abhishek Bajaj) and Preet (Anju Jadhav) because I have major scenes with them. Unlike our on-screen chemistry we bond really well off-screen.
