Kartik Soni is simply excited about his new avatar, as he is all set to play a freedom fighter in Zee TV’s upcoming show, Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani (Sphere Origins).
Completely different when compared to his fun-loving character in Colors’ Sanskaar – Dharohar Apno Ki, Kartik will play a man holding to his ideologies in his new show.
Also, from being seen wearing trendy clothes, he will now sport a dhoti and kurta for the first time ever.
Talking about his newest and different role, Kartik told us, “It is simply amazing to be part of such a huge show as Ek Tha Raja. I will play the role of Shyam, who is the elder brother of the protagonist, Drashti Dhami. He will be a very sensible and mature guy, very protective about his sister. Shyam will follow his father’s path, and will want to keep away from the kitchen drama created by his nagging wife.”
Kartik who hails from Bhopal did a lot of preparations to get into the skin of this character. “Basically, the man treads the path of a freedom fighter. And in order to get the body language, dressing sense of freedom fighters of Bhopal in that era, I met up with many of my grandfather’s friends who are still living there. I read a lot about them. Since I am from Bhopal, I could connect easily with the dialect. Yes, it is really tough to carry the dhoti and kurta. But I am now getting used to it.”
Talking about his camaraderie with the co-actors, he stated, “We had a superb time while shooting in Bikaner. Drashti, Moon Banerjee (mother), Vikas (brother) and I had a whale of a time and gel well with each other.”
Kartik, way to go!!
