Rajeev Khandelwal talks to Riya V Anandwala about his experiences in Left Right Left.
How was it working with a smaller channel in Left Right Left?
I’ve had the time of my life. I’m in love with Sab channel because the professionals who run it have a great attitude. Despite low viewership, they were able to sustain the show. I received the Best Actor Award for my role.
Did you want to continue with the show?
No. I’m happy that my track has come to an end. I don’t like the idea of stretching a role just because it’s suc cessful. I’m an actor who experiments with roles.
Did Left Right Left help you break your Kahiin Toh Hoga image?
The very fact that I get offers to portray different characters proves that I’ve been able to shed the Sujal image from Kahiin Toh Hoga.
It is quite satisfying to be associated with two hit characters, Sujal and Captain Rajbir Singh Shekhawat.
I’m off on an exciting holiday. I’m going to Lauhaul in Spiti Valley. It’s on the border of Tibet in Himachal Pradesh. Two of my college friends will be accompanying me.
So, you’re fond of adventure sports?
Oh, absolutely! I just returned from a car rally and have a track record in camping. For the Lahaul trip, we’re taking nothing with us. We’re going to hunt for food, put up tents and live there for 10 days.
What’s your next career move?
I’m contemplating two offers. It will either be a serial or a film. I’ve always believed in reinventing myself. I will sign something only if there’s scope for me to perform and grow as an actor.
What’s brewing between Priyanka Bassi and you?
(Laughs). That’s the most baseless and hilarious rumour I’ve ever heard. Priyanka and I’ve never even exchanged pleasantaries outside the set of Left Right Left. This is a figment of someone’s imagination.
I can understand gossip about Aamna (Shariff) and me, since we’re good friends apart from having worked together for over a year.
Are you seeing someone else?
No. I promise the day I have someone special in my life, I’ll be the first to scream it out loud to the world.
