Namit essays the role of Siddhant Sinha in Yeh Pyaar Nahi Toh Kya Hai…

This week, Sony TV launched its new show Yeh Pyaar Nahi To Kya Hai (YPNTKH), an extraordinary love story of Anushka Reddy and Siddhant Sinha.

Model turned actor Namit Khanna is playing the lead role of Siddhant Sinha in this new show opposite Palak Jain who essays the role of Anushka. The handsome hunk has impressed the audience with his web-series Twisted that also starred Nia Sharma and Tia Bajpai in the lead roles. And now, Namit is looking forward to role as a lead in YPNTKH.

Recently in an interview with a leading web portal, Namit spoke about his show and his journey from modelling to Twisted to Yeh Pyaar Nahin To Kya Hai..

While talking about the new show, Namit shared his thoughts on the script and characters. Namit said, “Yeh Pyaar… is a unique show. It is shot in real locations of Delhi. The feel of the series is fresh. The characters are contemporary. It’s my debut show on TV,  so I have butterflies in my stomach. We have worked hard on the project so hope audience love it. I am a fan of Producer Dilip sir’s writing. An actor’s work is done if he/she gets a good script. I am blessed to be working with such an amazing team.The story is very relatable. There will be some situations wherein youngsters will connect with it. I have gone through those issues and relate myself to it. I am sure people will connect with the story”.

Namit also talked about his struggling time in Mumbai,“I have been in Mumbai for a decade now. I started with modeling. I never thought of acting as a career. Now, when I look back, I feel it’s been a long journey. I got my break with web-series Twisted. But after the series, I wanted to do something different. In India, people lack imagination. They stereotype you after witnessing you in a particular character. I was working on a pilot shoot for Star Plus when I got a call from Bindu Moving Images. I went for the audition and fell in love with the story. I immediately agreed to do it.”

Amidst all the craze and praise for the digital platform of web-series we were really surprised to hear  that Namit actually prefers television shows over web-series! Comparing both the media platforms Namit said,“TV has huge scale and longevity. It definitely has a huge reach and connect with the audience. The character is remembered more than the actor. I feel it is a huge opportunity for an actor. As for web-series, it is short lived. You shoot it and move on. TV helps you to become a household name. I feel TV is a better platform.”
