Actor Laksh Lalwani, who is playing the title role in Rahul Kumar Tewary and Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s show Porus, says that he feels lucky to have got an opportunity to essay such a strong character.
“I feel thankful to the universe that I have got this show. It’s a big responsibility and I hope to play this role well. Swastik Production is known for creating the best shows and I am so happy that I get to be part of this one.”
The actor has worked hard on his physique for the show. Talking about it, he says,
“I have changed my diet, workout regime and lifestyle. Now, my regime is divided into two parts. The first one is all about lifting and building up strength. The second one is all about martial arts and wrestling. It also involving circuit and core workouts. As far as my diet is concerned, I prefer keeping my carbs level lower than the rest.”
While he has been getting a lot of compliments, sexy is a common one. Talking about this adulation and the compliments that he has been getting, he says,
“Honestly, I am flattered. I take it as a compliment. I live a normal life just like any young person. The best compliments that I have got so far are ‘your eyes make my heart melt’ and another was ‘you are hot like volcano.”
Ask him what he feels is the sexiest thing about him and he says,
“I guess my eyes appeal the most.”
Being good looking is great, says Laksh, adding that an actor needs to be much more than that.
“I don’t think that good looks are that important because if your acting skills are great, looks really don’t matter. If you have good looks, it can be an advantage but first thing which is important is your acting capability.”
As far as acting and looks go, Laksh has a favourite.
“I like Hrithik Roshan. He is a complete package. Hrithik is an all-rounder, who is an achiever all the way,”
he says, adding,
“Deepika Padukone is also great. She has the aura that can melt any heart. Her choice of films is also very good, be it Bajirao Mastani, Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani, Tamasha or any other film.”
His fans have been a big part of his success, says Laksh.
“My fans have always been there for me. I remember twice when they went out of their way to make me feel special. When I was shooting in America, a fan flew down from another state to see me and when there was a crowd seeing me shoot in Austria when I thought nobody would recognize me.”
Although for the world, he is perfect, there are some things that Laksh wants to change in him.
“I want to stop criticizing myself, so I would want to stop treating myself hard and go easy with life. I want to become a bit social because I never attend parties and I am not that active on social media also.”
