From play­ing an obe­di­ent son to a vin­dic­tive were­wolf on the small screen, ac­tor

Rithvik Dhan­jani (above) has done di­verse roles — now, how­ever, he wants to play the fa­mous fic­tional char­ac­ter of Sher­lock Holmes.

The char­ac­ters have been en­acted on the Bri­tish and Amer­i­can small screen by ac­tors Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch and Jonny Lee Miller, re­spec­tively. Ac­tor Robert Downey Jr, too, played the part on the big screen in Sher­lock Holmes (2009).

“I’d love to play the su­per cool de­tec­tive some­day. To be TV’s Sher­lock would be ex­cit­ing,” says Rithvik, who’s been on shows such as Pyaar Kii Ek Ka­haani, Pav­i­tra Rishta, and Yeh Hai Aashiqui. “I think the In­dian au­di­ence has a knack for thrillers and de­tec­tive sto­ries. Any fan of Sher­lock’s would love to fol­low the In­dian ver­sion too,” he adds.
