Star Plus popular show Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin is one the most loved show on Television. The show is topping the TRP charts and has become the number one show on TV. It stars Neil Bhatt and Ayesha Singh in lead. Ayesha as Sai Joshi and Neil as Virat Chavan is ruling the hearts of viewers with their amazing on-screen chemistry. Fans fondly calls the duo #SaiRat (Sai & Virat).
Neil has been in the entertainment industry for a while now. In a recent interaction with India Forums, the actor spoke about the positives and the negatives of daily soaps. Talking about it, Neil Bhatt quoted saying, “I think the positives are this that as an actor, you get an opportunity to engrave your character into your audience’s minds because you are actually penetrating into their houses through the television sets and people have more access to you. You are exposed to them daily, they are connected to you and your character, and they sort of find you synonymous to the roles, there is an image that you create. On a personal front, as an actor, and I am sure many would agree to me, there’s a constant flow of income through television because films and other mediums in comparison to television have more work.”
The actor further added, “The negatives could be that since you portray a character, they don’t know you as the person you are. Because in television, as the norm goes, they don’t really sell actors, (for a lack of a better word) they sell characters, and you are known by the character name, not by the actor’s name, so there is an image attached to it. I find it as negative that audiences don’t know you as an actor, they associate the character’s traits to you, and they start judging you. However, while it is an opportunity to connect, sometimes, you are also overexposed, and hence, it depends on how you look at it, sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn’t. There aren’t any set negatives, but it also depends on the industry, so to each his own.”
Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin is produced by Cockcrow Entertainment and Shaika Films. It is a remake of Star Jalsha’s Bengali series Kusum Dola. The show also stars Aishwarya Sharma in the lead.
