Gaurav Khanna aka Ruhaan of Zee's daily Meri Doli Tere Angana would be seen in a totally new character and look in the soap. Inspired by the film Henna, the story of the serial is taking a dramatic turn where Ruhaan would now suffer from amnesia and in the process, forgets his past.
Q. We have heard that the new story track of the soap has been inspired by film Henn...
A. I agree our story has some similarity with the film and it seems to be inspired by Henna, but the treatment and characters would be totally different.
Q. You would be suffering from amnesia...so would we see new characteristics in your role
A. Yeah of course, I would be seen as a totally different character from what I was before. I am no longer a businessman and would be seen living a normal life. The newer one would be more jovial in nature.
Q. Any kind of special preparations you are going through in terms of your look and costumes...
A. I would have to, as now I would be playing the role of a small town man. But at the same time, I am being adopted by a very rich businessman, so I would be seen wearing casuals.
Q. Who's playing the character of Sargam and how will your reel chemistry develop with her?
A. Shruti Sharma, who previously was in Mamta plays Sargam. It's been nice working with her and the scenes are coming out really well. That's all I can say as I am talking to media.
Q. Do you think that, public will accept you in your new image when compared to the old one?
A. See, you can't force anyone to accept what they see. They have liked me as Ruhaan and I hope that they would accept me in this new image too.
Q. When did you decide to make a career in acting?
A. When I started, I just got into acting with an intention to earn my pocket money and did small roles. It was two years back when I acted in Kumkum and that changed everything. Lot of people praised my performance and advised me to carry on with this profession.
Q. Are you happy with your career graph?
A. The journey till now has been very good and I have been lucky. Yeah, you can say that I am pretty much satisfied with it.
Q. Any plans of getting into films?
A. I have never planned anything in life. Even television was never planned. I started with ramp, and then I did few commercials before getting into television. Let's see what future has in store for me. I just take life as it unfolds and never force my decisions on it.
Q. Would we see Gaurav participating in a reality dance show like Nach Baliye?
A. I would really love to do it. I have even performed in Star Parivar Awards, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, etc.
Q. So, who would be your baliye?
A. I simply don't know and have kept my options open. I am yet single and ready to mingle.
