'Satisfaction' not in actor's dictionary: Ssumier
"As an actor you can never be satisfied with what you do. In serials, the story keeps changing and your track keeps coming and going... but as an actor you always wish that you get a stronger role," he told IANS.
Ssumier, currently essaying the role of Shailu in Color's show ‘Sasural Simar Ka’, says that show’s popularity adds to the pressure on the actors.
"The pressure does build when the TRP goes up. It's everyone's joint effort and not one actor's work. Even if I am performing with a veteran actress and I do something wrong, the whole scene will go wrong. So it is everyone's responsibility," he said.
TV shows spells stress, but not for Ssumier.
"We do have to sacrifice our social life to an extent. My friends get upset if I don't spend time with them. But after the shoot, we do go out as long as the next day's shoot is not affected. It's the responsibility of an actor to strike a balance," he said.
Having theatre background of almost 20 years has helped him a lot.
"If I hadn't done theatre, it would have been tough for me to react in scenes. Acting is not just speaking, but it is also reacting to what the other person is saying. The reactions can create a big difference. My theatre background has helped me a lot," he said.
About his upcoming projects, he said: "I have been getting calls and talking to few people. Till anything finalises I can't say. But yes, things are coming ahead."
Ssumier debuted in films with ‘Hum Tum Shabana’ alongside Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, and Minissha Lamba.
