Bhagyalaxmi's Antagonist Annkit Bhatia Shares His Struggle Of Playing Three Characters On Screen All At Once-EXCLUSIVE
As an actor, you should be trained physically and mentally to shape-shift into various characters. And when it comes to television, the shape-shifting part becomes a bit difficult since an actor gets into the skin of the character and it may become difficult to come out of it. But actor Annkit Bhatia, who's known for his versatility has managed to pull off the role of an old man and a Sardar in his current show, Bhagyalaxmi.

Sharing a bit about the track of the show, Annkit says, "In this one, I will be seen playing the role of an old man who follows Laxmi and tries to get inside the hotel by getting disguised as an old man called 'Khayyam Chacha' who plays Shehnaai at weddings. Other than that I am also playing Sardar Ji wherein is the total opposite to the character I have in the show. It's really interesting and challenging when you get to play different characters in the same show itself."

Talking about the difficulties he faced while holding on to the ground of his initial character while playing a different one which is that of an old man, Annkit says, "Initially, it was difficult but then, I once even told my director that I am a little bit confused as I am finding it difficult to hold the ground of my initial character. While playing Khayyam Chacha I was not able to bring in Balwinder's aggression. Muzzammil (Desai) sir asked me to keep the aggression intact because, no matter what, my character of Balwinder stays the same as he is just wearing the facade of an old man."

I am waiting to get a show where the entire narrative revolves around me, I will then be able to add my different flavour to it."
