As Jai Khanna, a strong character who perseveres regardless of challenges and refuses to give up, Siddhant emerged as one of the most promising talents after his debut series. “My heart is in the show and the love I am getting, I have never felt so loved. Jubilee has given me what she had to give me. It’s like a lifetime I’ve lived. When you give everything to a character, every second for a year and a half, it gives you something in return and that was beautiful. This is the most incredibly written character I have ever read. I was literally in disbelief,” Gupta had said.

Aashim Gulati in Taj: Divided by Blood

The actor did a stellar job as Salim in the period drama series, where he played the son of Akbar, the character essayed by Naseeruddin Shah. His demeanor and understanding of character gave him an edge which reflected in his performances. Gulati tells us, “A common man coming up to me and really appreciating my performance is the biggest reward I have got after the show and I am enjoying it. The perception of the industry towards me has also changed from a good looking man to an actor. This is the first time people have really liked my work, putting aside the way I look. However, after Taj, I am not getting many offers. The right eye hasn’t caught up yet. The perfect director who probably wanted me to see the show hasn’t seen it yet, for whatever reason. But if the right people had seen Taj, things would have been different, and I would have been getting a lot more offers than what I am today.”

In the Tigmanshu Dhulia directorial, the actor plays Arvind Shukla, a young student who gets embroiled in the world of politics and crime. He convincingly brought the complex character to life and had a strong screen presence. “It was a dream debut project. Working with a director whose work experience exceeds your total age, I don’t think I could have asked for much more. Actually, during the shoot someone told me that this kind of story comes to a star kid. More than me, my co-stars were sure that this project would change my life and I would get lead offers. After helming such a project, any director would trust me as an artiste. After this, the outlook of the industry has also changed. Earlier, when I used to come to Mumbai, no one recognized me. I was just another face outside the casting house. But now things have taken a U-turn. From casting agents to producers and directors, everyone knows me now,” beams the actor excitedly.

The actor won hearts as Farooq, a young boy from a conservative family who is into substance abuse and is at the center of attention for his sexual orientation. “When I first heard the script and read about my character, I didn’t really know if it was going to be for the character or to impress the audience. But, I was pretty sure that after doing this show, I would never be the same. Farooq is not even around me and I had to start imbibing the character from scratch within myself. And it affected my career in an outwardly good way. I am grateful that it happened,” says Rach, whose character is the most challenging and layered of the 11 main members of the cast.

As Firoz, Sunny’s (Shahid Kapoor) trusted friend and confidant, the actor delivered a powerful and nuanced performance and brought a balance of depth and authenticity to his character. “Though people are appreciating me, I am very critical of my performances. While watching the show, there were so many places where I felt I could have improved or could have communicated in a different way and been more impactful I believe there is always room for improvement. I am enjoying the appreciation but am not letting the success of the show weigh me down. I like to push my limits. I am excited but not worried ,”says the actor.

Abhilash Thapliyal in SK Sir’s class

his role in the series candidates which brought him fame. But, little did the actor know that his character SK Sir would have its own spin-off. “Whenever I see myself on screen, I always feel grateful that I got a chance to be on screen. That’s why when I do any work, I do it with 100% honesty. In fact, that’s the only way I know of to play a character. And I had put my heart and soul into this character as well. What makes it special for me is that it was the first character from TVF world to get its own spin off show. I had doubts in my mind initially as I was part of the ensemble cast till now, but this one project was up to me. I was the main character. The project was on my shoulder. So, it was a bit intriguing whether people would come to see me or not, and its success has given me confidence as an artiste,” says Thapliyal.
