I’d love to play Sherlock, says Rithvik
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.
