“This show has everything unique about it including the title, which is really catchy and also reminds me of my favourite song. I play the role of Pratap Cheema. He belongs to one of the richest families in Punjab. Since I am also from Chandigarh and can relate to this character, his simplicity and love for his culture,” he says.


The promos of Channa Mereya have been received well. Audiences are showing keen interest around the show.


“Indeed this show has a unique storyline, which is its USP. We need more of these kinds of shows for the viewers that highlight our culture. The show has a big ensemble star cast and it’s quite an experience to work with them. It’s like a big family on the set. Also, my character Pratap Cheema has a lot of scenes with Puneet Issar ji and sharing space with him is a learning experience. All my other co-actors are good and supportive towards each other,” he adds.


Sharing his experience of working with the Patnaik’s, Sandeep says,


“Working with Yash sir and Mamta ma’am, and Beyond Dreams was on my check list. Finally, I got this opportunity. Beyond Dreams is one the few production houses with whom an artist wants to work with. The atmosphere is positive and comfortable on the set. This goes on to show the healthy culture that the company follows and is therefore imbibed by everyone associated with it.”

Unique storylines always attract audiences. More so, in times like these when the viewing culture has changed and the audience are always hungry for something more, and interesting, all thanks to the OTT boom.

“Yes, nowadays content is the winner and script is the hero of the project. Wherever the audience comes across such a unique storyline and also the content they can relate to, the project is a sure shot winner. So, I feel the biggest change in the industry is the evolution of content and its presentation, which has become more and more unique and makers are also experimenting with it,” he adds.

Daily soaps will always have an audience no matter what, feels Sandeep.


“At the same time, daily soaps need to give their audience something fresh, and avoid following the same old formula of saas-bahu sagas, which does not have many takes these days,” he ends.
