He is charming. He is good looking. He has an attractive aura of mystery all around him!
Did you guess who are we talking about?
Well, we are talking about Harshad Chopda!
Day dreaming about the hottest TV actors, we realised its being ages since we have spoken to him. ‘SPEAK TO HARSHAD’ we wrote on the top of our to-do-list.
And then started our struggle of hooking up the guy. Given the fact, that he hardly answers call, mostly keeps to himself, we had our hopes the size of a mole hill.
Tringggg Tringggg…the call went on for long, and we had almost lost our enthusiasm, when suddenly the husky ‘Hello’ came up.
And our excitement and happiness definitely reached Himalayan high!
“Oh My God! Did you really answer?” we asked in a nervous tone.
Laughed Harshad back, “Yes I did! Thankfully, now you won’t have complains that I never answer calls.”
Definitely not young man!
Like a true journalist, we started scribbling down every word he spoke. We knew it was going to be an interesting conversation after all.
You don’t trust us?
Then ‘read’ to believe’
So Harshad what is keeping you busy these days, “Nothing much, just occupied with some classes that I have taken up to better myself. I am actually at home chilling with my family only. Also I have started working out religiously in the gym and concentrating more on my health. I think breaks are a great way to prepare yourself for your next outing.”
Wow! Aren’t we excited to see the new transformation?
With Humsafars, Saubhagyavati Bhava and Tere Liye, his last shows wrapping up suddenly, we asked if it hurt as an actor or a person ? Answered the good looking guy, “Even though Tere Liye had a long run, I felt it ended before we started only. I wished it had a longer run as I felt it was an incomplete journey. But with Humsafars, I felt we had a successful time and the love that we were showered upon was just beyond expectations.”
As a talented actor we wondered if he feels his potential is yet to be completely utilised. “I think I have worked on some really good shows. As for them not working, I think whatever happens; it is always for the good. When shows are pull out it has already given its best to the audience. As an actor, I take these opportunity to work on myself and present a better Harshad to my audience, in my next venture. Now that I have taken up various self improvement classes, I want to complete them all before heading back to shoot. I actually hope that nothing too good comes before then , or else I will have to leave them incomplete,” said Harshad.
Now that’s a first we hear from an actor who doesn’t want work! “(Laughs), See I really believe in completing what I have in my hands be it shows or my training,” he quipped.
Sooooper! It is difficult to find such honesty and hard work these days.
Sensing an urge in him to hang up, we finally concluded the interview by asking Harshad a difficult question- What is the reason according to you, that fans shower you with so much love, even when you are is not seen onscreen?
We could almost feel him smiling, as he answered, “Honestly even I don’t know what this special connection is. I am happy that I have achieved this stand today. And I feel that God has been superbly kind. I really want to thank all my fans for their utmost love and support. Also for ‘tolerating’ me (laughs)! But whatever be the state, I will be the same old Harshad for all of you, so keep the love flowing. I have been asked by people that will the disappointment over Humsafars would affect brand Harshad, but I want to know what is brand Harshad? I think every actor is at a position by the love of the masses. Even though Humsafars did not work, I think I managed to connect with the people at large and very closely. That has been a great thing for me.”
Isn’t that a really great thought?
And Harshad, thanks a lot for answering the call (wink wink)!!!!
