TV ac­tor Shivin Narang (left) might have got no­ticed in the role of Yu­vraj in a cam­pus drama se­ries, but he only made it big af­ter play­ing the role of a car­ing el­der brother Ran­vi­jay in a daily soap. This ac­cep­tance of a more se­ri­ous char­ac­ter makes him feel he has ma­tured as an ac­tor.

“I started with a youth­ful drama that showed how lovers be­have and the is­sues faced by young­sters. Now, I am work­ing in a fam­ily drama, so I feel as if I have been pro­moted from col­lege life to fam­ily life within three years. It just makes me feel that I have ma­tured as an ac­tor and can take up re­ally se­ri­ous roles,” says Shivin.

Even though Shivin does not have a sib­ling in real life, his on-screen sis­ter Di­gan­gana Surya­van­shi, who plays the char­ac­ter of Veera, made it easy for him to en­act the role on-screen.

“I have a lov­ing fam­ily, and that is why I have never felt lonely. I al­ways have my cousins around who are mostly boys. Be­fore play­ing Ran­vi­jay’s char­ac­ter, I was ner­vous and had no idea about how to treat a girl. But thanks to Di­gan­gana, who is younger to me in real life too, a sib­ling bond was formed easily be­tween us. She made it very easy for me to play her el­der brother,” he says.
