From playing a small town ruffian to a supernatural character, Arhaan Behll has always tried to explore various roles on the small screen, and looks like he will be soon making a bang on the OTT platform as well.
Talking about his projects, he revealed, “Finished shooting for ‘Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka!’ in March. Have not taken up anything yet, but talks are on for a web series.”
Arhaan made his small screen debut with popular Star Plus show “Mann Ki Awaaz…Pratigya” and confessed that his character Krishna is the closest to his heart. He even says that he accepts every role as a challenge and tries to create a personality of his own of every character he plays on-screen.
“Every character I portray challenges me. There are certain characteristics or mannerisms that you need to create for every character to make it lovable and for people to find the connect with it. Also, to make it different from other similar characters. These details are never there in the script or creative brief, so I have to create on my own and I find it really stimulating,” he said.
The talented actor even asserted that he loves the profession because of the variety it offers, and said, “The only thing I fear is monotony. And this profession helps me deal with that. It allows me to be a different personality and let me be under different skins every time. Besides, the joy of performing is phenomenal. Its a different high.”
In a career span of over a decade, Arhaan has been part of shows like “…Pratigya”, “Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se” and “Vish ya Amrit: Sitara”, to name a few. He called his journey “tailor made” and said, “I take things a little easy. There is no race, no competition, no fear for me. I just love what I do and I put my heart into it.”
Dream role? “I would love to play a character that requires a lot of study and preparations. Something that would push me to explore and find something within to help connect. Would love to play Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’,” he said.
And what kind of shows do you like to watch as an audience? “Time travel and concepts based on space pull all my attention. Besides, I love watching Middle East Cinema. Recently saw ‘The Spy’ and enjoyed every bit of it. The last show I binge-watched was ‘Dark’ on Netflix and was worth it,” Arhaan signed off.
