Ruling on the hearts of fans and audiences with his remarkable performances in TV serials till now, the Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki (Colors TV, 2016 – present), fame exemplary TV actor Avinash learnt this advice from mentor Ronit Roy in lockdown.
In a recent interview, spilling beans on the things he did whilst in quarantine lockdown at home within last year, Avinash learnt this advice from mentor Ronit Roy in lockdown.
Avinash Mukherjee says he followed advice from his idol Ronit Roy during the lockdown. You ask what it was? It’s “adoption and remapping”. He says he took it as a guru mantra and applies it in whatever situation he is in.
The Balika Vadhu star says he kept himself busy with his new ventures and added, “I asked my mentor, Ronit Roy, that you are so successful, you have money and fame, but how do you keep your mind busy, he just said two words – adoption and remapping – I took that as a guru mantra and try to use it whenever I can. So, when the lockdown was announced, I remapped and I thought what productive can be done and how can I solve the problems that will come now, because each situation has its own problem and that gives us different opportunities to serve and to provide a valuable solution to the people”.
Avinash has been part of TV shows like Sanskaar: Dharohar Apnon Ki, Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyar and is currently seen as Soham Singh in Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki. He says it’s the reality of life, i.e. death, that made him want to become an actor, because even when he is gone people will still remember him.
Spilling more beans on this point, Avinash said, “I have always been afraid of death since I was a child, I think it happens with every child when you are 4 or 5 years old and you get to know the reality of death. You see one of your family members dying and you just can’t see them again. So one day I decided that this field of acting can make you immortal, actors like Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, they still live in people’s hearts”.
Talking about his dream role, he says it would be something like Kabir Singh or Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Mohabbatein or Prabhas’s role in Baahubali. Asked about his acting masterplan, he says he will not say anything about it but will definitely show it.
For now, Avinash is looking forward to learning samudrik shastra. He said, “I am really looking forward to a subject which was taught in our ancient Gurukul system in India, which is known as samudrik shastra, the art of reading people’s faces as we know it is a difficult world out there with not so simple and very very complicated people”.
