MUMBAI: Shooting for the show in Punjab for two months, Adhvik, who hails from Jalandhar, said the show has allowed him to relive his fond Punjabi memories of eating Kulchey-Chaney and visiting the Golden Temple.
“My family is in Jalandhar and I make at least four trips back home in a year.”, says Adhvik, who shared a theatre group with ace comedians – Kapil Sharma, Sugandha Mishra and Bharti. “I was never into comedy, but then back then neither were Kapil, and Sugandha doing full-fledged comedy. We were all actors, though Sugandha was into singing. As they all went into comedy, I came to Mumbai and started with films and then TV.”, the actor revealed.
As Adhvik makes a comeback to TV as lead actor, he says he was also working throughout the lockdown. “I wrote a short film Tamas and approached some actresses from TV to play female lead since I knew TV fraternity well. But, no one really responded. I guess people must be treating the lockdown like a break (laughs). But, Rashami (Desai) loved the script and that’s how I did Tamas with her in the lockdown.”, says Adhvik, adding that in hindsight, he is glad Rashami played the part since she did a ‘brilliant job’ on it.

My career graph was never defined by the medium.”, he said, adding that he had the fortune to be able to choose his roles.
“Irrespective of the length of the role, I weigh in the character. I guess, this is what into making me an actor and I managed to still stay relevant. In this show, I play a completely different character. Even my own people are shocked at how different I appear in this.”, he confirmed.
