Actor Shahsank Vyas Remembers Pratyusha Banerjee On Her Death Anniversary


Actor Shashank Vyas is going places with his convincing portrayal of Ravish Vashist in Yash Patnaik’s Jana Na Dil Se Door. The handsome actor who hails from Ujjain came to limelight when he started playing Jagdish in Balika Vadhu. In this show Shashank met his first ever heroine on TV Pratyusha Banerjee. On Pratyusha’s first death anniversary (1st April) Shahsank shares his memories

He says,

“In life whatever do for the first time like your first car, your first show, your first heroine is always special. Pratyusha is very dear to me for that any many more reasons. I know it may sound cliched but I still can’t believe that Pratyusha is not with us.” Shashank also shares how they both used to wait at a railway station to go to the set. He says,”We had a great bonding, we were like buddies. I used to come from Santacruz and she used to come from Andheri and we used to wait for each other and then we used to head for Naigaon our set at that point of time. One thing which I used to be very jealous of was Pratyusha’s memory. she used to have a razor sharp memory and remember long dialogues. I used to take a long time to remember the lines.”

 

 

Shahsank also shares that when it comes to creativity they had few fights but that happened for better outputs. He adds,

“When we both started with Balika Vadhu we wanted to prove our talent in front of the Industry, so our focus was work and only work. I have seen her growth. She used to share her personal problems with me. And off the camera we used to have a lot of discussion on life and our work.” But a young talented actor like Pratyusha Banerjee left so early so what is the advice Shashank can pass to all the aspiring actors in the industry? He says,

“All actors on television are artists. they are not legends or stars. When you are not doing a show you are no one. To become an artist one should have purity in heart, I enjoy my success and fame but I have never taken it seriously. Reality check is very important for an actor. People nowadays doesn’t work for only roti kapda makaan, they also want followers and likes on their social networking sites.Right understanding of what you want in life is very important and one must have the right support system in life and career. I wish Pratyusha was alive. People should take a lesson from her life and find a balance in whatever they do.”
