Dheeraj: I just don’t understand the term spinoff!

Dheeraj Dhoopar reacts on why his show Kundali Bhagya is different from Kumkum Bhagya

-Harsha Wadhwani

Dheeraj Dhoopar popularly known as Prem of Sasural Simar Ka is currently busy working on his show Kundali Bhagya. He is playing the male lead, the role of a cricketer in the show. Dheeraj says that Kundali Bhagya is not a spinoff of Kumkum Bhagya. In fact, it’s rather a parallel universe and should not be compared with it.

When asked if there is any kind of pressure that he faces because of Kumkum Bhagya? Dheeraj says, “No, I don’t see any pressure. I always say one thing, for an actor I think every character is a challenge. I just don’t understand the term spinoff? I don’t know why but quite a comparison has been happening. They are two different shows. There is a totally different story line, the characters are also different, and there are only a few things which are same in both the shows.”

Adding further he says, “In Kumkum Bhagya, Shabbir (Ahluwalia) and Sriti (Jha) have done a wonderful job. But this is my show, I will definitely work harder and I know that I will have to make a point in audience’s mind, that they will start excepting me that way. Up till now I am getting very good feedback. I am getting lot of love and appreciation from the audience.”

On being quizzed that whether he underwent through some special training before turning a cricketer on-screen, he says, “I have been playing cricket since my childhood and I was a captain of the school cricket team. When it comes to the body language of a cricketer, I did have that and I still have it. Yes but you know now a days, I keep watching matches whenever it happens and I am a fan of cricket. So there is no homework kind of a thing, but yes I definitely give a personal touch to the character. I play in my own style.”
