Ansh Bagri on what’s next on Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji

Ansh Bagri, who is seen in the show Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji, says the show has a lot of twists and turns in store for the audience. Talking about the same, the actor says, “The first is that Rocky has a new look and is pretending to be Shaan. It’s not a typical daily soap, there are different twists. How Rocky will take his revenge is a question that will be answered. We don’t get the script and we only get to know the screenplay a day before so even we are excited when we shoot the scenes.”

Talking about Rocky and Shaan, he says, “Rocky was very impulsive, short-tempered, emotion-driven and so he got trapped. Shaan is totally different, he is an improved version. He has a classy swag and knows what he is talking about. Rocky had a different swag. Shaan is well aware of his enemies.”

In fact, the actor’s first look as Shaan reminded the audience of Ian Somerhalder from Vampire Diaries. “When I did India’s Next Superstar, I used to get messages that I look like this guy but I don’t like anyone comparing me with anyone else. I saw the guy and yes there are some similarities and he is a very good actor. I don’t know how to react but I take it as a compliment,” he says.

Romit Raj Prasher is back on TV with Kulfi Kumar Bajewala

Published

Actor Romit Raj Prasher is back on the screen after four years. The actor has been working on himself during this time and also has been giving time to his daughter. “In the long break, I studied Cinema, did acting workshops with actors and directors, kept myself busy watching world cinema and regional cinema. Also, I have been a stay-at-home dad as I have a daughter,” he says, adding, “I have been learning Marathi language and learning how to play the piano.”

Talking about his role in the show, he says, “I am playing the parallel lead, a new dashing smart dean of a school. He has his shades and is a very challenging character.”

The actor says that the TV show needs to come up with better content. “I have been saying no to mythological shows for the longest time and also shows which have stupid stories. I am not surprised why people are watching web series and shows on apps because most of the TV shows have lost their plots and they usually copy from film scripts,” he says.

The actor says that it’s a real struggle to find good work on TV today. “Unfortunately, there is not enough freedom given to writers and creative people on TV. The channel wants to play safe, be dependent on the research team and every show mostly looks the same. Also, there are many actors in the TV business and now writers want to act ad producers want to act….everyone wants to act, so for good actors, there are very few opportunities left,” he says.

Who says losing weight is all about working out in the gym. Actor Jason Shah, who has lost a ton of weight recently, and has been maintaining himself by just eating right. “I have actually lost almost 14 kilos on the sets of Jhansi Ki Rani due to extreme heat and a lot of perspiration,” says Jason, who plays the role of Captain Ross in the show.

He adds, “I wish I still had all that muscle, but there’s not much that I can do. I stopped gymming at the start of the show because I travelled quite far, about 3 hours a day. And after that its 12-14 hrs of the shoot, there’s not a lot of time to the gym and because of the amount of perspiration, my body is quite tired at the end of it. I am just waiting for the show to end and I am going to build back up, it doesn’t take any too long, give me two months and I will be good again.”

However, the actor has been eating right and has cut down on his sugar intake. “My parents always taught me that sugar rots your teeth and that it’s a killer and a thief. So keeping that in mind, ever since I was young, I have always tried to avoid it. Of course, I get tempted. It’s not like I don’t eat ice creams and desserts. I do, I spread out and do not eat these on a regular basis. You have got to watch yourself because, in India, they put sugar in almost everything that you eat,” he says.

He adds, “I am not going to the gym and that’s why I am lean. I have been maintaining myself with just a good diet, healthy food, healthy snacks throughout the day- oats, salads, fruits, eggs, chicken. That’s pretty much how I do it.”

While he takes over an hour to get ready every day, actor Rajiv Kumar says that he is loving his role of Dipti Kalwani’s Ek Bhram Sarvagun Sampanna. The actor plays the role of a eunuch in the show. “For my character of a eunuch, I observed the eunuchs on road, also I watched some documentaries to know more about them and their lives. While wearing the costume it does feels a little uncomfortable because a man in his normal life does not wear a sari with so much makeup. As a male artist when we go on the sets, we do very basic makeup but here in this show, I have to put a wig, a sari and jewellery. For makeup, it takes around one and a half hour, but I am enjoying doing the role a lot,” he says.

He adds, “I watched a film called Daayra directed by Amol Palekar where Nirmal Pandey played this character. I also watched a film directed by Mr Bhatt where Paresh Rawal played the transgender character. Also, I saw clips of Shabnam mausi, where Ashutosh Rana has played a transgender and a film where Sadashiv Dattaray Amrapurkar has played this character.”

The actor, who has been seen in shows such as Udaan, Gathbandhan, Meri Durga and  Mariam Khan – Reporting Live, says that he loves working with co-actor Shrenu Parikh. “Among the co-actors, I bond really well with Shrenu Parikh as a maximum of my scenes are with her. She is a very talented, energetic, supportive and wonderful actor. I wish her all the very best,” he says.

Talking about working with Dipti, Rajiv adds, “Dipti Kalwani is an amazing producer as she is very professional. The whole arrangement which she does as a producer in the production house for the shoot is amazing. Five stars to her!”
