Most actors are known to attend workshops before they start shooting for their films. Television actor Avinash Sachdev says that there should be a similar provision for TV actors as well.
According to him, due to hectic schedules, actors on the small screen hardly get time to do any research for their roles.
“It’s not how it works in a film, where actors have so much time to attend workshops to get into the skin of their characters. There are no Sundays or holidays in our schedules, and therefore, there is never any time for these workshops. I feel that this is something that we must work on including in the TV space,” he says.
“So, we do all the research that we can from Google. I often watch YouTube videos to get my characters right. For example, I play a doctor in my current show. On the first day, I had to perform a surgery, and before that, I needed to see how real doctors do it,” adds Avinash, who has acted in shows such as Hatim, Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and Chotti Bahu – Sindoor Bin Suhagan in the past and is currently seen in the show, Balika Vadhu.
While Avinash appreciates the work film actors do, he doesn’t want to join films. “I don’t want to be a part of Bollywood because I don’t want to let go of my privacy. I have seen that happens a lot, especially with film actors,” he says, adding, “I want to try different roles on the small screen itself. I always make it a point to pick up something different every time. I want to now take up a negative role, as I feel as a villain, I will get to act more,” he says.
