Aasif Sheikh says, The younger lot of actors do not have respect for time
Veteran TV and film actor Aasif Sheikh who recently made an entry in SAB TV’s Chidiya Ghar is being eased out of the show as his character could not be developed properly.
Talking about it the actor states, “Since Producer Ashvini Dheer was busy with his big ticket directorial venture Son of Sardaar, his team was not able to do justice to me. Hence he graciously decided to end my track and give me a role in his upcoming untitled comedy on SAB TV. We will start shooting for the show sometime in January 2013.”
Talking about the plot of the new show, Aasif said, “It is a love story where I play a Colonel. Though I cannot talk much on it, I can assure that you will not be disappointed with the show.”
Aasif who is lovingly called SAB TV ka Damaad after being part of their shows Don't Worry Chachu, Ring Wrong Ring, and Yeh Chanda Kanoon Hai says,“I love to work with this family channel as they give male characters some meaty work to do. This does not happen with other GECs where you are left standing behind the lead characters.”
Aasif who has been around in television from the days of Doordarshan’s Hum Log states, “I am quite disappointed with the younger lot of actors. They don’t have respect for time. I remember when I was shooting for Dill Mill Gayye, the next generation actors never liked the fact that I used to reach the sets on time for my shoot. They used to ask me why I always came early when I very well knew that the others would be late. I only had one answer to them that I cannot help as I consider late-coming as a disease. I worked for seven years in Yes Boss and maintain a record of being punctual to sets on all days. I have no issue with the youngsters learning their job, but lack of discipline does turn me off big time.”
We commend you for your punctuality.
