Ansh Bagri: I used to feel that TV is a boring medium to be part of

Actor Ansh Bagri never really wanted to be part of the TV industry. The actor, who has done over 100 commercials as well been part of the film Days of Tafree and is now part of a TV show called Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji, says that he was never fond of the medium. “I always do content-driven things and I used to always think that TV is a very boring medium to be part of. I felt that every day you had to do the same thing. I used to feel that I won’t be able to do it. That’s the reason why I never wanted to do TV because it has the same character and same look every day,” he says.

He adds, “But eventually when I did India’s Next Superstar, it was an acting, dance and performance-based show. After doing that, I saw that you get so much love after doing TV and as an actor you get to do so many things. I got that clarity from there. The other reason to take up TV was when this show was offered, I felt like the character is not a typical TV character. There are a lot of challenges for my character, Rocky in the show. Our production house, 4 Lions are known to give good content and they are very particular about their characters.”

However, does that mean that films will take a backseat in his career? “Right now, I just want to concentrate on Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji. I am improving every day as an actor and I am getting to show my talent. I am getting whatever I want to as an actor, I want to work and I am working, I want attention from my fans and I am getting that. I want appreciation and I am getting that as well, so it doesn’t matter whether I am part of a film or a TV show,” he says.
