CHAT Delhi boy Mohit Mallik on his lead role in the upcoming serial “Doli Armaanon Ki”

If you are hunting for television actors, Delhi is the place to be. A few years back Meghna Malik unleashed the trend of actors from the Capital making it big on the small screen. Recently we have had Rajat Tokas playing the role of Akbar in Jodha Akbar . Now another Delhi boy is going to try to capture the hearts of viewers with the show Doli Armaanon Ki .

He is Mohit Mallik and will be playing the role of Samrat Singh Rathore in the show. Mohit is not new to television. “I have done many shows on television but every time I joined mid-way. This is the first time I will be there from day one and that too in the lead. I have been received very well by the audience in the past; they have praised my work which makes me a lot more confident.”

Mohit says, “My character’s name is Samrat Singh Rathore, a young, ambitious go-getter businessman who has achieved plenty at a young age and even employs his elder brother. He has strong views on how a man and his wife must relate to each other.” About bagging this important role, he says, “I was approached by the producers and auditioned some four-five months back. Then we had a meeting and I refused to accept the offer as I was more interested in doing shows on Channel V or MTV, but in our second meeting after narration of the story and the concept of the show I was convinced. We have now shot nearly 10 episodes. Most of the shoot has been done in Jhansi, on the roads, in the temples and everywhere.”

“This is a different story, the concept is good, the audience will identify with the characters and I am sure this will keep the audience glued to the television,” he states, then with his tongue firmly in cheek, “They could not have got a better guy than me for playing the character of Samrat.”

He reveals that this role is different from his earlier forays. “The earlier characters I have essayed on television have been close to my real life personality but this time it’s the other way round. I had to change my thought process and try to be according to the character.”

Doli Armaanon Ki will be aired on Zee TV from December 2 at 10.30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
