Sunny Sachdeva who plays Shekhar in Prateek Sharma’s Pyar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan opens up about his role!
Actor Sunny Sachdeva, who plays the role of Shekher, in Prateek Sharma’s ( Studio LSD) new TV show Pyar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan, says that he agreed to be part of the show instantly, and all because of the title!
“When it comes to Radha Mohan, there is no second thought because the story of the show is going to revolve around the love and beauty of Radha Krishna, but in an advanced format of a daily soap. Surely it will reach the heart and the audience will form a connection. The show is beautifully written. My best wishes to the show,” he says.
Talking about the character he plays, Sunny says, “The character’s name is Shekher in the show. Shekhar and Mohan (Shabir Ahluwalia) are best friends and Shekhar is a family lawyer too. Shekhar is the person with whom Mohan can be himself.”
The show is being shot at Vrindavan, which makes it all the more special. “The theme of the show is beautiful already and the makers have already shot some part of the story in Mathura, Vrindavan. All I can say is that the show has already been blessed by Radha and Kanha,” he says.
Meanwhile, the actor adds that he always makes sure to keep working hard to be on screen. “This is going to be my second show of 2022. I was last seen in ‘ Iss Mod Se Jaate Hain’ for Zee TV. I should say it’s always good to maintain visibility on screen. Nowadays, there is a lot of competition between actors and everyone is seeking the opportunity to work in daily soaps, so you can’t just sit after you’re done with one or two shows, you have to keep working towards your next project,” he says.
Ask him if relatable storylines work better or relatable characters, and he says, “It works both ways; some people form a connection with the stories, while others like the characters. But yes, if the storyline is good, it will automatically create magic for the characters. A regional connection helps gain more viewership. If you see an actor or a character speak in a particular dialect, you build a connection with them. While a majority of the audience might struggle to understand a few words, if you are of the same region that the show is based in, you recognize it easily, and it’s a beautiful feeling. It, of course, makes it easier for the audience to connect with the show and they really wait for it to come on-air.”
