Gaurav Gera finds negative roles 'challenging'
Mumbai: TV actor Gaurav Gera, who has always been seen in positive and fun-loving roles, says he wants to try essaying a negative character as he feels it will be challenging.
"I look like the boy next door, so I do those kind of roles and I like the work I do. I also feel that you become what you play. I like to play good-hearted and honest characters," Gaurav told IANS.
"I want to do negative characters too, but not for long. I don't want to be seen as negative from start to finish (in a show). I would like to do it as a challenge only," he added.
Gaurav, who has been a part of popular shows like 'Sanskruti', 'Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin' and 'The Great Indian Comedy Show', will next be seen in SAB TV's latest offering 'Tota Weds Maina'.
"I feel very positive about it. It's a very slice-of-life kind of show. It is very subtle with all its emotions. It is a family bonding sort of show," he said.
Gaurav is one of the few actors who tried his hands on TV, films and radio, as well as the live Bollywood musical 'Jhumroo'. He thanks the entertainment world for accepting him.
"I think I have been very lucky as I have played roles in all mediums like TV, ads, films, radio... I feel the industry has accepted me wonderfully. I love being an actor. I am lucky that even if I take a break, still I get stuff to do," he said.
And which medium is better - TV or film?
"I like both. The temperament is very different. In TV, deadline is the boss. Whereas in films, you have a lot of time. Both are very different and I feel I am able to manage both," he said.
