Aniruddh Dave and Shashank Vyas have 'mutual admiration' for their talent...
Aniruddh Dave, who essays the lead role in Zee TV’s Aaj Ki Housewife Hai.. Sab Jaanti Hai and Shashank Vyas, who essays the principal role of Jagya in Colors’ Balika Vadhu have one thing in common!! And that is the mutual admiration that the actors have for each other.
We hear that both Aniruddh and Shashank liked each other’s acting even from the time when they did not know each other. Aniruddh who believes in choosing challenging roles on TV, saw few scenes of Jagya aka Shashank in Balika Vadhu, and this is when he felt that Shashank had it in him to become a very good actor. The same holds good for Shashank, as he was completely bowled over by Indu Singh (the character of Aniruddh in his earlier show, Ruk Jaana Nahin).
We decided to call both the actors to know what they like about each other.
When we called Aniruddh, he acknowledged the fact that he felt Shashank belonged to the ‘group of actors’ who have a different take for acting. “I noticed few drunken scenes of Shashank in Balika Vadhu when I felt here is a good actor who has the ability in him to be unique. That was the time when I got to know through a common friend, that even Shashank goes gaga over my acting capabilities. And this is how we came to know each other. We both shoot at Naigaon presently and this helps us to catch up often and discover more about our common thoughts.”
So what do Aniruddh and Shashank discuss when they meet? “We meet quite often and whenever it does happen, we talk about various subjects related to acting. We have a word on the aesthetics of acting; we also talk about various classics in terms of Hindi movies from where we can derive inspiration. We also share our experiences of working with big names in the industry.”
What does Aniruddh like in Shashank? “Actually if you see my career graph, one will notice that I have taken up only performance-oriented roles. And for Shashank, this is a big break to be part of Balika Vadhu. He is a brilliant actor and and has it in him to go miles. In fact, Shashank is the most grounded guy that I have met. And he is always what he is when he is with actors from the industry, and this is what I like about him. To tell you more, I also have the same attributes and that is why we both gel so well.”
We then moved on to Shashank to know what he feels about Aniruddh. “Aniruddh is a very natural actor and always has this penchant to adding his inputs to his character. And this is what impressed me. I have great respect for him as an actor. And if you see, we both have the same thought-process. He is very much scnior to him and has done quite a lot of good work. I keep asking him how he manages to add that ‘extra bit’ into his role and he always obliges by explaining the necessity of being different as an actor. We are ‘Desi’ boys who like to present ourselves as what we are. We have the so-called rawness in us. He is from Jaipur and I am from Ujjain. So you can say we are small town guys who compliment each other for our good work.”
Aniruddh and Shashank, we simply admire the mutual admiration that you have for each other.
