Jay aka Bakool from the Indian TV show Bhaag Bakool Bhaag has donned several roles on the small screen and enjoys the way his acting career graph has shaped up so far. However, the actor also agrees that some of his roles landed him in a chocolate boy image and that he wishes to take up roles that would help him break this image.
“Now that people have seen me as a cute chocolate boy too often, I want to do everything else instead. I want to portray a wealthy, pampered brat who is a casanova. Imagine how it will appear that this guy isn’t a bitchy person by face if I perform such roles with this look and body! I prefer to play such roles rather than the same old thing over and over. I have a passion for acting, but there are other reasons why individuals enter it. If you truly have passion, you will achieve the best results.” Added Jay.
The talented actor also feels that there are several similarities between his on-screen character Bakool and himself except for one. “Bakool is hard working, honest and a simple guy who can never think of bluffing anyone. Somehow circumstances put him in a situation where he is stuck between 2 wives. While trying to solve one problem, the other problem crops up. Thankfully I’m not stuck in a situation like that, but I do relate to all the other positive qualities of Bakool.”
Bakool also shares a jovial relationship with Harry who plays his best friend in the show. “ Bakool hides nothing from his best friend. He reaches out to Harry during all the tough times. Friends are the ones who also come up with a solution to your problems and for Harry it’s his best friend.”
“Bakool never holds back his sorrows in front of Harry, and he can be himself. He cries and shares his sorrows and happiness equally. Sometimes both also end up fighting each other but Bakool can only think of Harry as his go-to person to share his sorrows and happiness come what may.” Shared Jay.
