Ribbhu Mehra who has rose to fame with his role in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, is quite excited to be a part of one of the most talked about show – My Name Ijj Lakhan on Sab TV. The actor will enter the show tonight and if sources are to be believed the entry is grand, just as you would witness in a movie. Ribbhu Mehra talks with us about his entry, his character and his experience working with such an amazing cast.
Tell us something about your character in the show?
I am playing the character of Arjun Rathod, who is a Senior Inspector. He is a strong headed man and wants to eliminate crime in the city at any cost. He is very focussed and calculative and will do anything to get hold of the criminals. But he has this peculiar habit of remembering something from something, which is what adds an element of humour to the character. I am a cop movie fan like Singham, Khakee, etc. and recently being Simmba, so certainly I loved it and I had a lot of fun portraying Arjun Rathod. I am sure people love me in this new avatar.
We hear it’s a grand entry, in full filmy style, please elaborate.
Well, when we were shooting the introduction scene I didn’t feel that I was shooting for a TV show, I felt as if we are doing a film scene. Appropriate time was taken to shoot the scene and it was done elaborately with minutest details being taken care of. The entire team had lot of fun as we used to play The Simmba movie theme ‘Aala re aala Simmba aala, Police’ while shooting this scene, to get the feel. Everyone just got so involved with the scene that while watching the playback of the scene we were whistling on the sets. My Yeh Hai Mohabbatein entry was also amazing and filmy but this one I shall remember for my entire life. I can’t wait to see it on the silver screen..!
Your experience shooting until now, for this show.
My experience so far has been wonderful, it’s a dream team to work with. Our producers, direction team, creative team, production team, all the co-actors, Sony Sab Channel team, everyone is very supportive towards each other. It’s a pleasure sharing the same screen space with such talented and senior actors from our industry. When you have actors like Shreyas Talpdade, Archana Puran Singh, Parmeet Singh Sethi, Esha Kansara, Sanjay Narvekar, Naaser Husain, Jayesh Thakkar, Kaanchan Pagare, Pawan Singh, Deeksha Kanwal, it is an amazing experience and also it is a laughing riot at times between the scenes.
