He says, “I was offered 'Mohe Rang De' and 'Miley Jab Hum Tum' at the same time. I opted for the former as it was a period drama, something different from the usual lot. Though, 'Miley Jab Hum Tum' was a good story too, I was keen on playing a different character."
Unfortunately, 'Mohe Rang De' didn"t turn out the way it was told to me. I wasn"t happy with the way my character was shaping up, or even the story line. So, I decided to quit 'Mohe Rang De'. Luckily, 'Miley Jab Hum Tum' got delayed thereby, and once the producers learnt that I"ve quit 'Mohe..' they reverted back to me. I didn"t think twice and gave my nod. Things just fell in place for me as Miley turned out to be a pretty successful show for the channel and for me. People love me as Mayank."
Delayed decision it was, but in the end, it turned out to be the right one.
