Shaheer Sheikh and Erica Fernandes are all set to return with Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi and the actor recently spoke to us about the show, returning as Dev Dixit, chemistry with Erica, and more. The actor also spoke at length about the content on Indian television, how Kuch Rang has managed to change the TV space and so much more.
Read excerpts from the interview here.
Kuch Rang has received a lot of love since the very first season, and the show is now going to go on-air for a third. Did you think the show will come such a long way when it first aired?
I loved the concept when it was first narrated to me and I honestly never think about the numbers or the success of a show. That’s not something I can control so I try not to bother about all that. I am always happy and grateful when I am offered a project that is exciting for me and I try and give it my all and live the character.
In more ways than one, Kuch Rang has changed the TV space instead of adapting to it. What do you have to say?
I feel so fortunate that I got the opportunity to be a part of such a good show. It strengthens my belief that if your storytelling is good even a subtle and simple show can work on television & connect with the audience. ‘Kuch Rang…’ didn’t try to fit into any existing format/formula, it just told a simple, real and raw story with honesty & that’s what resonated with people. I’m so proud of it.
You and Erica have been quite the iconic on-screen pair, do you, like the viewers, also believe that the chemistry now comes naturally for the two of you?
I feel we know each other so well and we support each other to perform better. It’s very important to have an equation with your co-actor because that definitely translates on-screen. I’m humbled that people have showered so much love on our pairing & I hope we are able to create the same magic once again.
What would you say is going to be the USP of this season as far as breaking stereotypes are concerned?
Like the previous seasons, Kuch Rang had always explored the layers and complexities of relationships in a realistic & subtle manner. The nuances & the moments are all relatable as the characters are in a new phase of their lives.
As an actor, do you often feel disconnected from a character you are playing? If yes, how do you get yourself to act?
That is the challenging part for an actor to become the character even when you don’t relate to the character or agree with the character. But convincing myself that I am the character and not Shaheer does the trick for me.
