Rajesh is really very excited about his new character. As he says, "Before getting this opportunity, I used to just see such kind of characters in television and get happy. But this time, I am really excited as I am doing one such role. My appearance and outfits will be outrageous and my cap and my stretched out ears should enthuse the children to watch me (smiles)".
Like many other colleagues in the show, Rajesh is not habituated a face in the industry, but his character in "Sarabhai verses Sarabhai" has really given him a mileage. He gives all its credit to the Hats Off Productions saying, "Hats Off Productions is like a laboratory for me and I am their white rat. They do whatever experiment they want on me."
Rajesh is true in the sense that his character in Sarabhai… was uniquely fresh and well accepted by the audience. We may expect Hats Off to try any such experimentation with his character in "Chal Di Da Naam Gaddi". Rajesh says, "Truly speaking, I didn"t think about my character when Roshesh happened, and am not thinking much about this character too. I always try to make my characters look jovial so that it may get praised by audience."
Rajesh has also done a cameo in Hats Off Productions" "Ek Packet Ummid" for NDTV Imagine. "Grihdah", another show that Rajesh is acting in, is based on Sharat Chandra Chattaopadhyay"s novel of the same name. Rajesh, in Grihdah, is playing the character of Suresh who belongs to very rich family and forces away the ladylove of his poor friend. As based on the story of 1950, the dialogue of the show demands pure Hindi. Besides language, the show is crucially dependant on the perfect time, situations and locale.
Rajesh is happy with his few roles and appearances even in this age of extreme competition. He says, "I am happy with my present status. There are only thirty days in a month and I am happy that I am busy all throughout these days. At the same time, it"s really necessary to take my time out for my family."
Rajesh is to be a proud father in coming July. He is very excited with that news and at the same time he is upbeat when it comes to his increasing responsibility as a father. We can guess it very well that this upcoming gin of "Chal Di Da Naam Gaddi" will soon entertain his own child, too.
