Actor Paritosh Tripathi, who will be seen alongside actor Suniel Shetty in upcoming TV show “Indias Asli Champion…Hai Dum”, says he got nervous when he tried to mimic the “Dhadkan” star.
“Back in my hometown in Uttar Pradesh, almost 15 to 17 years ago, we used to watch Suniel sir’s movies like ‘Mohra’, ‘Aghaaz’ and ‘Border’, and now to share screen space with him is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me,” Paritosh said in a statement.
“During one of the episodes, I mimicked Suniel sir. On the day of the shoot, I was rehearsing my lines in my vanity van, but when I came out and saw him, I got nervous. He then came up to me and showed me few postures and told me how to get the act right. It speaks volumes about how humble he is as a human being,” he added.
Paritosh will be seen as ‘Anna ka Chaukanna’ in the &TV show.
“Firstly, the term ‘Anna ka Chaukana’ is a hit name, it’s like a ‘jodi’. Also it’s a very popular dialogue of Suniel sir. Whenever I enter as ‘Anna ka Chaukana’, I bring along a twist, but in a funny way.
“Since the show involves many gruelling tasks which the contestants shoot in the sweltering heat, someone has to lighten the mood and that’s where I come in,” Paritosh said.
“India’s Asli Champion…Hai Dum” will start from Saturday.
