Popular and ace TV star Aniruddh Dave who just recently became a father to a healthy baby boy with wife Shubhi Ahuja is in the best phase of his life both personally and professionally. In his recent interview, we get to know that he has added yet another feather to his cap where Aniruddh directs Ronit Roy for his directorial debut venture show.
The actor currently seen in the character of a transgender based on Ardhnarishwar in Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki is winning hearts of fans and audiences with his path breaking performance. Spilling the beans about this new feat he is set to achieve, we are really excited to know that Aniruddh directs Ronit Roy for his directorial debut venture show.
Speaking about his decision to cast the stalwart TV star in his debut show and much more, Aniruddh directs Ronit Roy for his directorial debut venture show.
Popular actor Aniruddh Dave, who has embraced fatherhood for the first time in his life, turned director recently and the Patiala Babes actor is very excited about his whole journey.
He says, “My directorial debut is Jurm Aur Jazbaat which is Shemaroo’s new show. It is a different kind of crime based show and unlike any other in India. Ronit Roy is narrating the entire story in different episodes”.
Speaking about casting senior actor Ronit Roy, Aniruddh who is soon to mark his debut in Bollywood industry as an actor with Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom adds, “I was nervous when I met him initially and narrated the story as a producer. Ronit Da is one of the most talented actors we have and he has done some great work and continues to do so. He has witnessed the golden era of Indian television. Whether it was the saas bahu sagas, or Mahabharat or Adaalat he was different in each and people still remember him for his performance. Directing him for this series is a memorable experience. Direction was always in my mind, I have always shared this with my co-actors and friends that one day I will direct. To me directing is not only calling the shots, it’s about giving shape to what you have visualised on paper. The team of Shemaroo also supported me and helped me achieve this. Every time I was calling for the action command as a director on set I was referring to him as either Sir or Ronit Da. I have started my career from tv and there is no one bigger than Ronit Da”.
Speaking further on Ronit Roy he adds, “Ronit Roy’s command over Hindi language is too good and the way he formats that through his dialogues is commendable. It was very nice of him to have posted a pic of us on social media when we were shooting in chilly Nainital and also write few lines about my craft. This means a lot to me and is indeed a priced possession. I am grateful to him that my directorial journey starts with a stalwart like him”.
So acting will take a backseat now? On this he says, “No I am an actor first and I will always be. I have a vision of directing and in the coming days, I will be involved with my craft in various ways”.
Speaking about his inspiration in direction Aniruddh says, “The way of directing also changed a lot. Recently I have seen series like Gullak, Paatal Lok and I just loved it. Abhishek Sharma, Prosit Roy are very good directors. I have also always loved Anurag Kashyap’s way of directing”.
