Dakssh Ajit Singh to enter ‘Chhal Sheh Aur Maat’
The Maryada actor will play a convict in the thriller
After playing highly controversial gay character of Gaurav Jhakar in Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak, Dakssh Ajit Singh will now be seen as a short-tempered guy in Chhal Sheh Aur Maat. He says people may start liking his character. In the Colors’ thriller, he will be seen as Abhinav, a convict who is just released from prison. His character will enter the show tonight.
“He is in jail since a few months. He is very short tempered, unpredictable and can change any time,” Dakssh, told IANS and added that it is not a negative character totally. “It could be that after four episodes, people change their perception of my character. But yes, it is a grey character. He can’t control his emotions and one can’t judge what he would do in a particular situation.”
Explaining why he accepted the role, he said, “There are very less opportunities in TV for a male actor to do something different. I wanted to do something different and I like my character.” Dakssh feels that the content of a show is very important and that “the main story is primary, and many things depend on it. Chhal Sheh Aur Maat is a suspense thriller that is why I wanted to do it.” He added, “You need to see the money and dates as well. The people are nice here. When people around you are nice, you like to work with them.”
The character of Abhinav came quite naturally to Dakssh as he is short tempered himself. “I don’t think you need to do anything extra to prepare for a role. I am anyways short tempered. There are people like this outside in the world too. When you look around and observe others, it becomes easier. I am not going to prepare much for the role,” he said.
