For Rrahul Sudhir, Ishq Mein Marjawan was the turning point of his career. He played the role of Vansh Raisinghania in the show. The actor says that he owes a lot of his success to producers of the show Yash Patnaik and Mamta Patnaik.
“Ishq Mein Marjawan has been the game changer in my career. And, I shall always be thankful to Mr Vikram Bhatt for offering me my first lead role in Twisted 2. That project helped me grow as an artist,” he smiles.
Rrahul prefers maintaining a low profile. One wonders what makes him stay away from the limelight.
“Well mostly bed rest post the slipped disc kept me out of the business. Also whatever opportunity I managed to grab either got scrapped entirely or never released. Just a stroke of bad luck I guess,” he shares.
Summing up his experience of working in the show, Tere Ishq Mein Ghayal, he adds,
“To an ever-evolving human, I can only thank my producers for this opportunity. To be in the company of such fine actors and to learn and draw inspiration from them is an amazing experience. I guess I can safely say I am a tad bit better than what I was in Ishq Mein Marjwan.” Rrahul has worked with Yash and Mamta twice. And he has only good things to say about them and their team.
“It started off as what we call ‘beginner’s luck’. I remember I wanted to leave acting and move back home when I got Ishq Mein Marjawan. On the first day of the shoot, Mamta ma’am told me ‘Please forget your past and start like this is the first project of your life’. I took it to heart and never looked back. Post the show I was their first choice for every project they made, which speaks volumes about the trust they have in me. The only project I was never called for was Tere Ishq Mein Ghayal and I wondered why, now I know why. For me, personally they have been there at my worst and that is something I am always indebted to them for,” he sounds emotional.
Meanwhile, Rrahul feels that the OTT boom has been wonderful.
“I think ‘OTT boom’ sounds like a paradigm shift, but it isn’t. The same audience got more engaging and intense stuff to watch on OTT platforms and they have clearly liked it more. Television needs to revise its approach and cater to a bigger audience pan India if they want to survive these times,” he opines.
