Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Idrees Bukhti­yar

Ac­tor Alok Nath’s role of a cool grandpa in the re­cent film, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (SKTKS), was far from his stereo­typ­i­cal im­age of the san­skari babuji. And, the ac­tor says he thor­oughly en­joyed it.

“I loved play­ing this role. I never felt hes­i­tant or shy in per­form­ing it be­cause I be­lieve when you are an ac­tor, you have to do [just about] any role,” he says, adding that it can in no way af­fect his pop­u­lar­ity neg­a­tively. “In­stead this role has added more fame to my per­son­al­ity and is be­ing widely praised by peo­ple. If I am of­fered more such roles in the fu­ture, I will def­i­nitely go for it,” says Nath.

The ac­tor cred­its the suc­cess of his role to the film’s di­rec­tor Luv Ran­jan. “It was his idea to [present] me in a never-seen-be­fore way, and thank­fully, it worked.”

Asked about the equa­tion that he likes to main­tain with the younger gen­er­a­tion in real life, es­pe­cially his chil­dren, Nath says, “It’s very friendly. We share our sor­rows and hap­pi­ness with each other and that is def­i­nitely boost­ing our re­la­tion­ship.”

Keep­ing up with to­day’s gen­er­a­tion, the ac­tor is on Twit­ter. “But I hardly get the time to open it,” he says, adding, “To­day, so­cial me­dia is a great source of in­for­ma­tion... It has also added some colours to my per­son­al­ity.”
