‘People love watching romantic shows’
A ctor Arjun Bijlani (above) feels that the romantic genre will always be a favourite among the TV audience, as it shows the kind of love that doesn’t happen in real life.
“Love and romance will always be liked by the Indian audience. The romance we show on TV does not happen in real life, so we love watching it and want our partners to be like this amazing guy or girl we see on-screen,” says Arjun, who plays the role of Shikhar Mehra in a daily show.
The 32-year-old rose to fame with Left Right Left and Miley Jab Hum Tum. While he enjoys working in romantic serials, he doesn’t want to stop just at that.
“I have started enjoying romance. It’s a good space to be in, but I won’t stop doing other roles. When I’m old and look back at my career, I don’t want to be an actor who got popular with just one show. I want to have that creative satisfaction when I look back,” he says.
Bijlani, who took a year’s break after his show Miley Jab Hum Tum before coming back to the small screen, says that a show’s success does not depend on a variety of things. “When you decide to play a role, you don’t know if you will get accepted or not. You just go ahead and give your best. A show’s success depends on the totality, and not one person. It depends on what people like to watch. It’s not necessary that people will accept me in another romantic role,” he says.
