Weekend Exclusive | I cannot think without and beyond comedy: Actor Rajesh Kumar

Sab TV, the family entertainment channel, known for its quirky, chirpy, light-hearted shows, has added another one to its already impressive list of shows. Titled "Chintu Chinki Aur Ek Badi Si Love Story', with the lead pair Rajesh Kumar and Divyanka Tripathy, the show is here to get your ribs tickling. The lead Rajesh Kumar has done serious roles in serials like Kkusum, Kaun Apna Kaun Paraya, Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand, Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka and marked his entry with comedy shows like Ba Bahoo Aur Baby, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai and Mrs. & Mr. Sharma - Allahabad Wale.

In an exclusive conversation with Adgully, Rajesh Kumar, lead actor and the producer of the show spoke about his life journey and the role he is donning in the show.

Rajesh says, "There has been growth in my journey. The growth that is required in television, it is there. A journey from an actor to a producer has been perfect. It has been very exciting and encouraging." "I cannot think beyond and without humor," adds Rajesh.

Talking about his role in this show, he said, "Chintu is a very shy boy. He is literal shy person who even starts biting his nails when nervous or feeling shy. He is born and brought up in a joint family in fact a huge family with lots and lots of restrictions. He is a very confused person and as the show goes on he falls in love and there the hilarious part starts and all funny incidents take place in his life."

With lots of expectations with this show as a producer as well as an actor, strongly believes that slow and steady wins the race. "Every Wednesday I will sit and look at the TRP ratings. We expect that we will connect with the audience pretty well," he added.

Because of such a hectic life schedule as always busy in shoots, he loves to sleep when he is off, loves to play with his 3 year old child and also loves to be with his wife.

Giving an advice to the new entrants he concluded, "Don't get dishearten while struggling and especially if you are coming to Mumbai and staying here. Believe in yourself and finish your education before getting into this field or may be any field. Think for alternatives if you fail to achieve something but don't give up. Think of taking a risk and don't get disappointed."

Chintu Chinki and Ek Badi si Love Story is a series of an old world romance set in a small town city of Bhopal. The show is co-produced by Hats off productions. | By Aanchal Kohli [aanchal(at)adgully.com]
