The actor, who has successfully completed seven years in the industry, says that he still approaches each show like it’s his first one. “It has been an amazing journey. Being an outsider, coming from Delhi and being part of the industry for 7 years seems amazing. I remember the first day very well. Entering the sets, meeting people, actors, I was excited, nervous and didn’t know what will happen. I also perceive that life is full of surprises. I guess giving the first shot is also a big thing. But for me, every shot is the first shot and I give it with the same enthusiasm and energy. I have always experimented with myself and I always tried to give my best to my shows,” he says.
Talking about his journey, he says, “My first show was Surveen Guggal -Topper of the year. I was contacted through Facebook by the makers of the show. It was funny. At that time, I was modeling in Delhi. I found it fake as you don’t think you will be contacted for a show on Facebook. Then I came to Mumbai where several know actors were there for the audition. By God’s grace, I got the show and since then there has been no looking back. I am lucky that I have good people around me; good actors, good makers and many others who have guided me throughout.” “Every day cannot be the same and life is full of ups and downs. But I have a lot of people with me and a lot of love for me which kept me motivated,” he says.
The actor’s current show Internet Wala Love has also completed 100 episodes. “It seems really nice to complete 100 episodes. I have been part of the show since the show was building and the story was being written. I have seen this project growing as a baby. It’s really very special for me and this is a show which was like an experiment as we have an introduced a youth show on Colors. So, it was challenging and it had the efforts of the whole team. This show has made good space in spite of having so many juicy and dramatic shows on the channel. The audience’s love is amazing and I feel it’s doing well,” he says.

The actor is a youth icon and is grateful for the love and work that he has received over the years. “I am really happy to get the opportunity to play different roles in different shows.

Whatever work I have done- be it advertisements and shows, all of them were very successful,” he says.
Shivin Narang has been single contrary to permanent rumors of his link up with Smiriti Kalra. But latest buzz is that he is in love with his unique co-star a dog called wifi. He is a big dog lover, however, his hectic life in Mumbai does not allow him to keep a pet. The actor is thrilled to have a pet on his show Internet Wala Love. “As our show is ‘Internet Wala Love’ and my character and my family is internet savvy, the name of the pet is WiFi. You know how these days we can’t stay without wifi, so that indicates how much we love our dog. I share a great bond with this dog,” he says.
The actor adds, “I remember since I was born we had a dog. And till now, I had 2-3 dogs in my home. But now, since I am working in Mumbai, I have not kept any pet because, in our work, timings are never constant. I don’t want my pet to suffer. I believe pets are very sensitive and they need a lot of love attention and your care. I can’t keep a pet just for my personal happiness.”
However, he really wishes he could have a pet. “It’s very true that dogs are a man’s best friend. They love you, they care for you and protect you and give you all the attention and love. Their presence is like a therapy to be happy,” he says.
