In this interview, actor Abhishek Tewari, who has been seen in shows like Chand Chupa Badal Mein and Stories By Rabindranath Tagore, talks to JYOTHI VENKATESH about his journey and what he wants to do in the future.
What have been the landmarks of your career journey?
The main landmark I would say has been the journey itself. Being launched with a well-promoted show like “Chand Chupa Badal Mein “ with a top channel like Star Plus, doing top notch work like working with top directors like Anurag Basu for his series “Stories by Rabindranath Tagore “ as the main protagonist and working with national award winning-director Ashwini Choudhry, I have loved every bit of it. Everything added immense value and quality to my work and gave me a platform to explore the actor in me. Being part of super hit shows like Balika Vadhu and Ishqbaaaz has been amazing. I have been utterly grateful for every experience till date. I have always tried to re- invent myself with every role that I have taken. From positive roles to comic roles to negative roles, I am blessed that I have been well received by the audience. There is always a craving in me for versatility.
Which characters from which shows made a huge impact on your career?
I feel that a huge impact on my career came from Mr. Anurag Basu’s series “Stories By Rabindranath Tagore “ “SAMAPTI”. We shooted the entire series like a film with so much of detailing and going through that spontaneous process drastically evolved me as an actor. I’ll always be grateful for that soul enriching experience. I still get compliments from all over the globe for the character and how I played it and that brilliant story is ever shining on Netflix.
