Kundali Bhagya’s Sanjay Gagnani is referred to as a ‘Villainero’ (Villain – Hero) by his fans
Zee TV’s top-rated show - Kundali Bhagya has offered many interesting twists to its viewers ever since its inception. All the drama in Karan (Dheeraj Dhoopar) and Preeta’s (Shraddha Arya) lives have surely kept the audience at the edge of their seats, especially with the numerous dramatic twists introduced ever since Karan escaped from jail. In fact now, Preeta has been more than ever on the lookout for the culprit and strong believes that Sherlyn (Ruhi Chaturvedi) had something to do with Akshay’s murder, despite her constant denial. Meanwhile in all of this, our very own Prithvi (Sanjay Gagnani) who has been constantly adding fuel to the drama, remains quite content with the happenings of the situation and refuses to even help Sherlyn in the mess that she is. While Prithvi is in a real happy space, the actor behind this role is also pretty satisfied with his role, ever since he made his return to Kundali Bhagya.
Sanjay feels not only blessed to be having a team who has crafted his role really well but also to be immensely loved by an audience whom he initially thought might hate dislike him for his character. In fact, since his role is a perfect amalgamation of a hero and a villain’s traits, he strongly believes that he is not someone who could be typecast for a negative role easily.
Sharing his views on the same, Sanjay said, “The audience of my show has given me a name which is called ‘Villainero’ which stands for Villain Hero(laughs). So, a lot of them see me as a villain, a lot as a hero and the rest as a Villain and a Hero. Unlike many other actors I have managed to keep myself from being typecast as of now and l feel blessed that I don’t have to break any kind of image that I’ve created on screen. The credit for that completely goes to my entire team and especially the writers because they have portrayed me in such a manner that only my activities are evil. When you look at Prithvi Malhotra, he doesn’t look like an antagonist and his look kind off contradicts his activities. The audience and the producers are very intelligent, and hence I feel they have been able to differentiate and understand that the character and my personality is not at all restricted to just being an antagonist. Honestly, I have no fear of getting typecast because, if I could be casted for a villain’s role despite not looking like one, I am confident that any other producer will cast an actor like me who has played a villain, in a hero’s role as well”
While Sanjay Gagnani is enjoying his sheltered character in the show, the other antagonist Sherlyn is all set to twist the current situation in court, by criticizing Preeta for her legitimate accusations against her. Now, will she be able to convince the judge, or will Preeta find a way to reveal the actual truth?
