PIYUSH SAHDEV- The dashing Cop of ‘Shapath’, and Life indeed is OK!
His story as an actor, commences differently. He had no burning ambition to become one, but he was a dedicated perfectionist, in whatever life threw at him. So when acting was presented as an option, Piyush went after it. Indian Television got richer as a result, and Piyush has now become one of the most sought after actors. Having been seen on popular shows like Meet Mila De Rabba, Ghar Ek Sapna. We catch up with the actor between takes:

On your decision to become an actor?
I’ll be lying if I said I always wanted to become an actor. But one feedback I did get, based on my physical appearance was that, I should probably try my hand in modeling.  Anyway I showed up in Mumbai in 2001, it was more circumstances that got me here, as opposed to any modeling or acting desire. In fact in those days it was more of living life by the day. But when I did get the chance to model, I decided to go ahead with full preparation.  However, I saw the life of an actor and that attracted me more so I decided to follow that path. The theater group that I joined in Juhu, was along the lines of a traditional guru- shishya system, and in that environment I picked up the skills of acting and dialogues.  My self confidence increased as did my command over language, something that was missing from my persona when I had arrived in Mumbai.  This got me started in the world of  T.V. serials.

On your favorite character that you have played?
The role of a Sardar (Sikh) , Kulwant Singh, in Meet Mila De Rabba. I say that because that got me maximum recognition and accolades and also because as an actor it felt great, when people refused to believe that I was not a Sikh in real life. I must have done a reasonable enough job as an actor, for them to have been so convinced.

What serial are you currently working on?
I play a cop in the serial, Shapath, on a new channel, Life’s OK. Initially I was apprehensive on accepting the role, but it is turning out great and I have been working hard, working out and working with cops, to ensure I act as one, in the serial.

What do you do when you are not working?
Fortunately or otherwise I have been working round the clock, ever since I became an actor, but if I do get time, I like to spend it with my girlfriend, Akansha Rawat, also an actor.
