Actor Ashish Chaudhary who plays Dev, a curious and genius detective in the Desi TV serial ‘Dev’ says that his different experiences related to the show taught him to put life into a character. “I am glad, Dev’s character came into my kitty. It has taught me how to give life to a character way more than I had ever done before in my previous roles. It gave me another level of confidence that I can look into roles other than comedy and films”.
“I don’t have a background in the film industry. During the initial days, nobody knows what sort of roles would work for an individual and that was the case with me as well. That’s why I used to take up several roles for granted but that clearly didn’t work in my favor. Today, I can confidently say, after all these years of hard work and the experience I have gained, at least I know what’s required to bring a character to life.”
Talking more about the show Dev, Ashish shared, “To give my best for Dev’s character I had prepared a few notes on my phone. It was a kind of a to-do list for me stating how Dev needs to express, right from his body language to the way he raises his eyebrows and even voice modulation wherever it was required.”
“All of this helped me to a great extent in doing justice to Dev’s character and as a result when I step out, I receive much love and appreciation from the audience. I feel content that they know me as Dev way more than they know me as Ashish.”
For Ashish, acting was never his first choice. “I took up acting as a hobby. Never imagined that I will become an actor. But I have come a long way in this field and out of all those characters I have played, Dev is close to my heart also because the character itself has taught me so much.”
