The veteran actor Rasik Dave has made a comeback with Zee TV’s newly launched show Aisi Deewangi Dekhi Nahi Kahi. He is playing the Dharam Singh Rathod, who is the father of the male lead.
The thespian has featured in umpteen TV shows, films and is also well-known for his Gujarati plays. Dave is an extremely down-to-earth man and is happily married to famous TV actress Ketki Dave.
In a chat with , Rasik spoke at length about his role at home, on sets, reality shows and a lot more.
“The reason I choose to make my comeback with this show was the uniqueness of the character. I have a very innocent looking face but makers thought that I can play the role of Don Dharam Singh Rathod very well. Usually, on TV we see Dons are very aggressive but my character is very emotional towards people,” he said with a smile.
Dave is a veteran; he has had his share of success both onstage and on screen, talking about his journey, quipped he, “I am very happy with my journey in the industry. I have balanced between shows, films and theatre. By God’s grace I had the opportunity to explore as an actor.”
When we quizzed him about his favourite era on TV, his quick response was, “It has to be the era back in time. I agree we did not have those many kinds of techniques but the work ethics were fantastic.”
Aisi Deewangi is a show that is being helmed by a new production house, it was strange for a veteran like him to make a comeback with this series, banishing all doubts he retorted, “That because TV is female oriented, my character is performance oriented. I won’t be merely standing at the back, holding hands, giving bizarre expressions.”
Talking a lot more about the TV scenario and how many old shows keep coming back with a whole new season, Rasik told us he would like to be part of “Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi, if it is made again on TV” alongwith his wife Ketki.
Rasik Dave is a man who has knowledge of everything under the Television umbrella which is why he is also aware of the Reality show rat race, speaking of which he disclosed he does not mind being a contestant on Bigg Boss. “In fact I think I can win the show as I know how to tackle 10 different kinds of people.” He added.
wishes Rasik all the very best for his future ventures, may he achieve all the success in whatever he does.
