KUCH TOH LOG KAHENGE’s Sachin Parikh: I like to do negative roles

The actor, who plays Mallika’s abusive husband Jagan, says it is a challenge he enjoys

Telly actor Sachin Parikh, who is seen as wife-beater Jagan Mehta in Kuch Toh Log Kahenge, says he enjoys playing negative characters as they are more challenging, and hopes to move to Bollywood soon. “I always like to do negative roles. Television has very less leverage for an actor to perform at times. Most shows are based on family and have goody-goody roles. But when you get a role which is not done in normal life, it becomes a challenge for an actor and I enjoy that,” Sachin told IANS.

As Jagan, Sachin has a violent role. He is seen subjecting his wife Mallika (Rukhsar) to domestic violence. He even injects her with drugs and that has played havoc with the character’s mental and physical state. Sachin also plays the role of Sachin Vyas in Colors’ Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha. In this show, his character is very subtle and perfect. Asked how he balances both roles, he said: “Switch off, switch on is part of the game. I don’t face difficulty performing both the roles. I don’t perform both the roles one after the other. I have ample time in between.”

Though the actor is a known face on small screen, he wants to take a break from TV and concentrate on taking a leap into Bollywood now. “I don’t want to do much of television. There are talks of a movie which I might sign. It will be a Hindi feature film. I can’t say any more about it right now,” he said.
