Hrishikesh Pandey says, 'The biggest plus point of CID is that we do not show anything gruesome'
Hrishikesh Pandey, aka Inspector Sachin of Sony Entertainment Television and Fireworks Productions’ CID has had a long career spanning nearly 12 years in the industry. After being part of saas bahu sagas, and having played varied roles starting from a Casanova to romantic ones to slightly negative roles, he is now enjoying the present phase wherein he plays a cop.
Talking about the fan following that he has had over the years, Hrishikesh says, “Earlier, I used to have more of the girls as my fans. Also, the saas bahu sagas were very much liked by the elderly people. But now, as Inspector Sachin it is more of the kids who follow us. The biggest plus point of CID is that we do not show anything gruesome; we have been there for so many years and still continue to reign supreme amongst the kids who are regular viewers of our show.”
CID as a show does not give as much liberty for an actor to laugh and smile. But the actors on the sets do have a jolly good time whenever they have free time. “Yes it is true that we do not get to have a hearty laugh while shooting as our roles demand us to be like that. However, we do not mind that because we crack jokes on sets whenever we are not shooting. We sit together and sing at times. We also indulge in a game of badminton during our free time.”
Ask him who the biggest prankster on the set is, and Hrishikesh says, “It is me and Daya (Shetty). We are like a family on sets and it is a great working atmosphere.”
Great going, Hrishikesh!!
