I want to try different kind of roles – Anshul Pandey

Anshul Pandey, aka Naman of Star Plus show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, is planning to gradually ease out of the show. It has already started with him being in jail for trying to murder his elder brother Naitik (Vishal Singh).

“I have given all what I could to Yeh Rishta in my two years stint, playing all kind of shades from a boy to a mature adult and now a villain. Also, due to the presence of a large number of other characters in the show my dates are not being used enough. I have had a word with producer Rajan Shahi and he also has no problems with me looking for other work outside.”
Anshul who first came on the scene with the popular Sony show Bade Ache Lagte Hai says “I want to try out different kinds of roles. Anything outside my good boy comfort zone will be more than welcome. Hence, when the creatives asked me to do the first negative in Yeh Ristha ‘s 8 year history, I was more than game”.


In closing, we ask him about news of co- star Hina Khan not being comfortable with the young guns like Kanchi Singh. “I too have heard such stuff, but they will remain unsubstantiated rumors, till some one comes on record and says I have a problem with XYZ. Personally, no one has come and told me anything. I have had a fun relationship withher.Off screen we hang out on set discussing stuff other than work “
