All this while, actor Purab Kohli stayed away from television because he wasn’t sure he could manage with films. But now, the actor has figured out a way to juggle both. The actor shoots for one project in the morning and the other, at night.

“When you are involved with a TV show, your dates get really flooded. I was always wary of this and hence stayed away from TV, but Nikhil’s (filmmaker Nikhil Advani who is now directing a show, an adaptation of an Israeli TV series) show was too good to resist. I am trying my best to accommodate the timing between the show and my films,” says Kohli, who is also working in a film directed by Sunhil Sippy.

The actor, who has been part of films such as I AM (2011), Fatso! (2012) , Shaadi Ke Side Effects and Airlift (2016), has an efficient team, which is trying its best to help him work smoothly.

“My managers are spending a lot of time discussing dates with the schedulers of the different things I am involved with. As hectic as it sounds, I am really enjoying these projects and love the way they are turning out. Once they release, and if the audience enjoys it then that will be a worth all the hard work,” says the actor.
