Rohit Purohit: It was difficult to get the medical terms correct, make dealings with patients look authentic
Rohit Purohit is enjoying his stint in Nilanjana Purkayasstha and Herumb Khot’s “Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii”. The actor, who plays the role of Vikrant Saxena in this medical drama, produced by Invictus T Mediaworks and Studio Next, shares that he finds the title of the show apt.

The Show is Relatable
“The title, much like the show, is relatable. Since this is a medical drama based on the life of doctors and their struggles, sacrifices, and contribution to society, the title goes with the theme. Vikrant, my character in the show, is that of a very egoistic man. He is in love with doctor Deepika (Additi Gupta) but again he has different demands from life, as his upbringing has taught him that men are superior to women and that men are always a step ahead of women. So while he kind of believes in all that, Vikrant also goes with the flow of society. He is very ambitious and is one of the top surgeons in the country. His transformation is very interesting,” says the actor.Rohit adds that he does not relate much to Vikrant. “I have never had this thought that men are superior to women as I’ve seen many strong women in my life, be it my mom, my wife, and many others, and I know what they can do. But yes, I’m ambitious like Vikrant is,” he says.
The show is based on doctors and it’s quite thrilling for an actor to play someone from the medical profession on screen, shares Rohit.
It is Intriguing and Thrilling
“It’s intriguing and thrilling. When I started working on Dhadkan… it was not easy, unlike some of my earlier shows here things have to be kept quite natural and subtle. It had to look like we’re doctors and not actors who are playing the role of doctors, so basically it was challenging, medical terms were difficult, also how dealing with a patient needs to look authentic, etc were tough. Whenever we see a doctor we feel ki yeh insaan nahi hote hai kya? Inhey kisi cheez ka farak nahi padta kya? But, they do get affected and worried but they don’t show it in front of the patient. They have to keep themselves strong and that is the challenge playing such characters,” he adds.
Praising the show maker duo Herumb and Nilanjana, Rohit shares that his experience of working with them has always been fabulous.
“I have worked with Nilanjana ma’am and Herumb sir earlier as well and I really feel blessed that I’m working with them again. They are very creative and also give us our creative freedom. It’s my third show with Nilanjana ma’am, I did Chandragupt Maurya and Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji with her. Even this time around, in between, she kept offering me other projects but it didn’t work out for some of the other reasons. It’s always a pleasure working with her,” he ends.
