“Earlier, the villain was one of the hated characters in a show and most actors didn’t prefer a negative role. Now, the times have changed and there are movies and shows where villains have overshadowed the heroes. At times they are loved more than the hero. I enjoy the hateful love of my audience for my grey-shade roles,” he says.
The actor says that playing negative characters has been a gamechanger for him. “For me, these have worked like sunshine. This has been the greatest and most fruitful decision I have taken in my life. As an actor, such characters challenge me a lot. You need to work hard to present yourself with expressions and style to impress your audience,” he says.
