Colors: Tell us all about the reactions you received from your costars when they learnt about Aryan. What do they have to say about the new look and the character?
Manish Raisinghan: “Oh, the look has been loved by Avika, Dheeraj and the rest of the actors. They have been a big help and I would say the real beauty about the show is the team. They are so supportive and so helpful in every way that they tell me inputs during or post the shot. It is a learning process every time we are at the shoot”
C: What is Aryan doing in the current plot? Where is the story going in the new twist?
MR: “There is a lot in store for the fans of Sasural Simar Ka as Aryan is a killing machine and is controlled by RB. I can’t reveal a lot to you as I do not want to kill the suspense, but yes a lot of thrill is coming up!”
C: Which character do you relate to more, Aryan Or Siddhant?
MR: “It has to be Siddhant without a doubt. Siddhant is my favorite and I love that guy (laughs). Siddhant, as a character, has many shades ranging from a romantic guy to an angry young man. Aryan is slow, controlled, and robotic. Personally, I don’t like to be controlled.”
C: How important do you think leaps are in a daily soap?
MR: “Thank you for asking me this, Sasural Simar Ka is the best example which proves that a show can do well without taking generation leaps. A regular leap is like a break from the monotony which is easy to accept and something new for the actors as well as viewers.”
C: Are we going to see Roli-Sid back again any time soon?
MR: “I don’t know what to say. I really hope it happens and happens very soon too. As of now I am concentrating on Aryan but yes Roli-Sid is one of the most unique chemistry and the best thing about them is that they are not conventional. They are out-of-the-box and I like thinking out-of-the-box.”
