Apr 6, 2015: Gurpreet Singh, who stepped into Rajeev Khandelwal’s shoes to play Sujal Garewal in ‘Kahiin Toh Hoga’ after his exit, is back on the tube. Last seen in ‘Rangrasiya’, he will feature opposite Bollywood actress Sunny Leone in ‘Aahat‘.
He says, “This is the first time I’m doing a horror show. I’m playing a Bollywood hero and Sunny’s lover in this special episode.”
While the actor has featured in several shows since Kahiin…, he is still recognised as Sujal. Does the fact that the character continues to overshadow his present, pinch him? “How can it bother me when all I get for that role is appreciation? Actors are always remembered as their maiden characters. It’s been eight years since my outing as Sujal, but people still address me as him while asking for pictures and autographs. It feels nice that the character is still fresh in their minds. My life changed overnight after I bagged the part. I’m happy to be still remembered as Sujal,” he says.
Gurpreet now wants to play a full-fledged role in a daily soap. “My previous show Rangrasiya was supposed to run for long, but it ended abruptly. Once things fall into place, I will be on the small screen again with a pivotal role,” he signs off.
