SUMEET VYAS: DON’T WANT TO JUST PUT GAGS IN TRIPLING

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT - Sa­marth Goyal

Ac­tor Sumeet Vyas, who has made a name for him­self af­ter writ­ing and act­ing in web se­ries Tripling, says he doesn’t want to rush into writ­ing the sec­ond sea­son, but un­der­stands that view­ers and fans are al­ready ex­cited about it.

“I un­der­stand that peo­ple are ex­cited about the sec­ond sea­son, but I don’t want to rush it. We are still in the process of writ­ing the sec­ond sea­son, and only af­ter that’s fin­ished, would we be able to give you clar­ity on when it might air,” says Sumeet.

The 34-year-old says that the team be­hind the se­ries has been dis­cussing and brain­storm­ing for ideas for a long time. “I have spent two months try­ing to get ideas and writ­ing it. The most im­por­tant things has to be a com­mon con­cept around which the sea­son will re­volve,” he says.

Elab­o­rat­ing why a fo­cus is needed, he says, “If there’s no com­mon con­cept— some­thing that pro­vides a con­nect with the au­di­ence — it holds no mean­ing. It can’t be a show full of just gags. It should have some mean­ing to it as well.”

The ac­tor, who will be seen in Veere Di Wed­ding op­po­site Ka­reena Kapoor Khan, feels that dig­i­tal plat­forms are a path­break­ing plat­form for artists to put out their con­tent. “It’s a great thing, and peo­ple can put up what­ever they like, or want to talk about, and get ap­pre­ci­ated for it. I mean, look at Bhu­van Bam’s BB Ki Vines. It’s such a great con­cept, and he got all his fame through it,” says Sumeet, who first shot to fame for his por­trayal of the Mikesh Chaud­hary, in web se­ries Per­ma­nent Room­mates.
