`The character of ‘Hero’ is very close to my heart and his versatility makes me admire him’
• How does it feel to be in a different avatar?
o It feels fantastic to be in this different avatar, and I am very much enjoying portraying this evil side of Hero on-screen. I have experienced a range of variations in my character throughout the show, and I feel playing a negative character with a detailed look makes me feel different from within. In addition, with Hero turning evil, I am getting an opportunity to push my boundaries and explore myself as an artist.
• Tell us about your experience of shooting this new phase in Hero.
o The experience of shooting for this new phase in Hero-Gayab Mode On is terrific. Everyday donning this new side of my character is challenging sometimes as it is a huge shift in his personality, and this makes me love my job so much. This show allows me to learn something new at each step. It's been quite some time since we started with this show and it's been nothing short of a joy ride. Hero – Gayab Mode On is getting bigger and better with exciting and compelling, never seen before sequences. The show promises to bring something new for the viewers.
• What are your thoughts about the character?
o I believe that the character of evil Veer, influenced by halahal, is very negative, manipulative, and stronger than Veer aka Hero. I feel blessed as Hero has giving me an opportunity to perform a diverse range of characters. It is a learning curve, and as an artist, I couldn't have asked for anything better. It allows me to delve into my skills, strengthen them and excel at them. The Hero and the evil Hero on the show are contrasting and have a very distinguished styling. This phase gives me a chance to explore and get hands-on experience of living a grey shaded character. I am enjoying this journey, and we are working very hard towards it.
• What makes your character stand out?
o I think both Hero and the evil Hero have distinguishing qualities that will make them stand out. The evil Hero is incredibly smart, confident and sassy. The creatives are putting their best efforts to make this evil Hero different and the minute detailing in terms of style, costumes, and the attitude that this evil Hero will carry is something definitely to look out for.
• What do you love the most about your character?
o Hero is very close to my heart, and his versatility makes me admire him so much. The characters essence is similar to mine so the experience of portraying this on-screen has been a great experience.. Hero loves experimenting with new things in life, and so do I.
• How are you prepping up for this character? Any special preparations?
o For the first time, my character on the show will be taking a new avatar, and a different personality of Hero will come to light. I am thrilled and excited about the journey ahead with the evil Hero as I am getting an opportunity to play a character whose nature, morals and conduct contradict Veer's. His intentions and actions will be influenced and entirely controlled by the halahal. I am undergoing a series of changes and have been prepping as I want to explore every possible route to do justice to the new side of my character and this new journey. It will be a learning curve for me, and my fans will watch me in a never seen before avatar.
• As the evil Hero, what is your message to the fans?
