I didn’t like Shanky’s character at first

Mumbai: Actor Jay Zaveri says it took him a while to get used to his Shanky character on Apnapan. The actor says the role is very different from what he’s done before.

“Shanky is basically a friend, philosopher, guide and business partner to Nikhil Jaisingh, who is a celebrity chef. The relationship I shared with Nick (Cezanne Khan) is amazing, on and off screen. The character is so different from other characters I’ve played on screen. My director keeps telling me to ‘spice up my performance’. ‘Shake’ means a person can say anything, anytime, without paying much attention to the situation. This character taught me a lot. I was a bit skeptical at first when I was doing this character. I didn’t like the Shanky’s character, his personality. I’m usually a quiet person, can’t make jokes and need my time. I speak politely, respectfully. I had a hard time playing this character. It’s different from other characters I’ve done before. It’s more in the comic zone. The whole series is a drama. family me and Shanky is supposed to bring a comedic angle to it,” says Jay, who has been on shows such as Meri Hanikark Biwi on Mtv, Vighnaharta Ganesha on Sony, Ishq Main Marjawan season 2 who was on Colors and Janani who was on Ishara TV.

Ask him what kind of roles he would like to play in the future, and he replies, “As an actor, I always have to be greedy. I’ve done characters on shows like Ishq Mein Marjawan, where I’ve played a kind of gray character. Now I’m doing a cartoon character. People tell me that I can play a negative character well and I look forward to playing more in the future.

Jay says he’s learned a lot from his journey in showbiz. “I was part of Mere Sai where I played the role of Das Ganu Maharaj and this character taught me a lot. Usually, I am a short-tempered person. After playing Das Guru Maharaj, I realized that I had to stay calm and calm and think before I say anything. The characters that I played also changed a certain role in me. If I talk about other characters, I played the character of Rana Bhojraj in Vighnaharta Ganesha. This character is very powerful like a king but the character had such devotion to Meera and Krishna. He always talks to everyone in a polite way. After doing all these positive characters somewhere consciously or unconsciously they became a part of me. I also made sure to speak politely and respectfully with each and every one. As my dad always told me, when you respect someone, you get them back,” he says.
