Sidharth Shukla, popular television actor and winner of Bigg Boss 13 is making a comeback at fiction space after three years with Ekta Kapoor's web series Broken But Beautiful 3. Before the release of the series the actor in an exclusive video conversation with SpotboyE.com revealed the reason for staying away from the medium, similarities between his character Agastya and him. Also how he deals with heartbreaks in real life. Watch the video below;
What is that one thing we will see Sidharth doing for the first time on screen with Broken But Beautiful 3?
First time you will be watching me on OTT. As it's my first ever series.
How do you deal with heartbreak in real life? When was the first time when you experienced such emotions?
Well, I have experienced this emotion a few times in my life. I have learnt from it and if I have made the mistake then I make sure that I don't make that mistake again. And if it's because of somebody else and I feel that I gave in too much then I realise what are alarming bells and I just step back then.
Will we be seeing you on the Big screen again?
When the time is right you all will know of it.
What has been the reason to stay away for all these years?
Nothing great was offered to me all these while.
So, what was the reason you said yes to Broken But Beautiful 3?
Honestly, when the series got offered to me I heard the story and just fell in love with the story line. As I could totally relate to it. So, I said yes and went ahead with the show.
What are the feelings about your digital debut?
I am excited and nervous at the same time. Because one doesn't know if people are going to accept you or not. And the kind of job you do. You wanted to be different with what you have been doing regularly. This is different for people to accept you in a different avatar. That's why I have both the feelings at the same time.
Now when you have explored all the mediums like Film, TV and OTT. What is your preferred one?
Medium doesn't make much of a difference to me because as an actor I enjoy my job. I love acting so wherever something great comes my way I would like to go for it. And talking about OTT, it is definitely the next big thing now. I see a lot of people on it now. Unfortunately, in the time where we are in, there is not a lot of content on television. So OTT is another way forward. There is so much that you can do in this space and I feel that's the best part.
What are the similarities between Sidharth and Agastya?
To an extent, a lot of situations Agastya has gone through in his life are quite similar to what has happened with Sidharth also. So, I could relate to it.
One parting message for your fans...
As we all have to stay at our homes due to the ongoing situation, it does get boring and frustrating at times. But we don't have a choice. The pandemic is huge. Also, at this point we haven't learnt much about the virus. So, it's better to stay indoors. Not just for our safety but also for our families.
