Father’s Day is here! TV actors tell us what they have learned from their old man!

1.Samir Soni

My father’s name is Raghbir Soni. My dad passed away 3 years back. He was an honest hard working man from a small town near Shimla. He always taught me 4 things. Work hard, be a good human being, always respect women and the word “impossible” doesn’t exist. And till date, I follow that advise.

Father’s Day is a very emotional day for me since I lost my dad, Jitendra Soni,  in my teens and I was very close to him. I am whatever I am because of my parents and my dad has been the biggest reason which I value my relationships in life and express my love on a daily basis to my family and friends. One of the many things he taught me was to be brave and stand by my choices and live a life that makes me happy, be honest with the ones who love me unconditionally and accept me just the way I am. The way a father expresses his love shapes a daughters relationships in life and this Father’s Day let’s not hesitate to shower our love to dearest daddy.

My father’s name is late Mr Omkar Singh Bagri. I really miss him and he is one of the main reasons behind me becoming an actor today. Whenever I see myself on TV, I miss him. There are many things about my dad which I remember, he was crazy about his work and was very hardworking. One thing which he always used to say is that we should always work hard and should never take a step back and neither give up. Also, he said that we should never expect too much, we should just think that every day is a new day and we have to work hard. So these things which he told me, inspires me every day to work hard. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers.  s.

    My father’s name is Krishnappa Kadandale. One advice given by him which I follow till date is, to be honest to yourself. There are three things which I follow which are- you should always do the right thing, be happy and make others happy. He was very righteous about things. I lost my father before coming into the TV industry when I was around 22 years old before I started Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. When I was pregnant, Deepak Bhayani who is Deepak Bhai for me, who is actually my husband’s family friend, was there for me and he has been like a father to me for the last 8-9 years. He is my father figure and I am going to celebrate with him and the family which I have earned all thanks to him, his wife, daughter, and son. If I am not shooting than most probably, I am going to celebrate Father’s Day with him and Sana who is like my sister. What he normally does is that he takes his daughters out and gives them a treat and gifts, so that’s the kind of father which I have for the last 8-9 years and he is very special to me.5.Rajesh Kumar

My father’s name is Shivanand Prasad Singh. My father always wanted that I try my hand at agriculture and I took his advice seriously. He wanted me to change my profession but I have not changed it completely. Rather, I have added one more profession. This time on Father’s Day we won’t be together because he is in Bihar and I am in Mumbai. So there is no special celebration but I think that whatever small achievements I have would make him happy on this day.

  1. Angad Hasija

When I was in 12th my father passed away, I miss him a lot. Everyone tells me that I have a lot of manners and etiquette and that I always address others with ‘Aap’ even to the people who are younger to me. So somewhere or the other I have inherited this thing from my father as I always used to see him addressing everyone with ‘Aap’ even to the servants. So these little things I have learned from him. He even respected women a lot. Since I was very young, I didn’t get a lot of time to spend with him but whenever I see someone else bonding with their fathers I really miss him a lot. He passed away when I was very young so I only remember his face. I really wished that he would have been there so I could have celebrated father’s day with him. But I know somehow he is always there with me and will always be there.

Romit Raj Prasher is back on TV with Kulfi Kumar Bajewala

Published

on

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!”
