I think good stories are good stories, it does not matter what genre or angle it explores
Harshad Chopda has become the flavor of the season with Rajan Shahi’s Ye Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai!
“I was promised a new show. I have been delivered a new show,” he sounds content.
He adds, “He is a man with zero personal life experience. When I say zero experience, I mean he has worldly experience like he has been too good schools and colleges, knows his work, and even does well at the hospital. But he is unaware of things beyond that, his emotions are all driven towards his work. As far as what he saw and understood from that, he made up his mind based on that and made the same thinking his reality.
About the reason why he said yes to the character and how much he relates to the character, Harshad says, “There was something to play and I felt like I wanted to do that character. So, all these actually attracted me to take this role up. Playing Abhimanyu feels like I am giving my own to the character and I think the character is shaping me.” Ask about his experience of working with Rajan Shahi and his team at Directors Kut Production, he adds, “It’s so good that I want to say, ‘Thu Thu Thu, Nazar Na lag (smiles).”
Content is King
“When I think about it, what also comes to my mind is that even if a writer or content creator creates good content, it also depends on how it is being presented and performed. If these two things aren’t done well then no justice would be done to the content. I think nobody likes that. So, I agree that content is king but at the same time, a product is only successful when everything and everyone works well. So, I divide the credit 50 – 50,” he says.
