Playing a father made me realise that I would love to be a father someday: Nishant Malkhani

Nishant Malkhani essayed the role of a father in Beyond Dreams Entertainment’s ongoing show “Rakshabandhan: Rasaal Apne Bhai Ki Dhaal”. Though he had earlier played a dad in “Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega”, the current show was his first full-fledged role as a father.

Talking about portraying fatherly emotions on-screen, he said, “This is the first time I have done a full-on fatherly role with two little kids, and honestly speaking, I think it was a beautiful experience because I got to explore the fatherly side of myself and I realized how much I love kids and how much I would love to be a father someday. So thanks to ‘Rakshabandhan…’ I have had the realization that I want to be a father someday.”

When the show started he played Umed Pratap Singh, a single father of two kids – Rasaal and Shivraj. Asked if there were any apprehensions about playing a father on-screen, he said, “My character was of course a father to two kids but otherwise he is shown to be a really handsome dude with Rajasthani royal looks.

He was shown like a king with a nice mustache and there are so many scenes where he is fighting like an action hero. He is showing off his body while working out. So of course, he’s a single father but a very attractive, very loving man. And I think overall looks-wise, Umed Pratap Singh was one of the most good-looking characters that I have ever played.”

After Umed’s death, the show takes a leap and Nishant is then seen as Shivraj. He said that he is lucky that he got to explore this concept of playing both son and father on-screen and added, “I never thought this would happen with me because usually most of the time this happens with the female leads of a show.”

He further said, “But like I keep saying, I am always very lucky when it comes to television. I get very male-centric roles in male-centric stories too. So in this show, when I played Umed Pratap Singh and now that I play his son, Shivraj, both characters are the center of the show, the story and the actual male protagonist of the show. So I think it is a wonderful opportunity for me to explore this and show that I can play the father and the son and do a convincing job out of it.”

Nishant has two music videos in the pipeline which will be out soon. He stressed that music videos easily reach a lot of people and said, “The chances of the video going viral is much higher if the song becomes a hit. Also, everybody loves music, everybody loves good songs, so if you get to be part of a super hit song, I think that’ll increase my audience by many folds from what I have currently.

Let’s hope for the best and hope that my songs do well when they come out.”

Herumb Khot on what’s next for Invictus Mediaworks: We’re planning historicals, TV content, and short format, OTT and emerging media content as well

From being a computer engineer, fashion photographer to a director-producer Herumb Khot has come a long way. Coming from a typical Maharashtrian family, engineering was a logical eventuality, but while pursuing his education he realised he is more interested in the world of fashion and photography.

“I am a self-taught photographer and started my career in Advertising and Fashion Photography when digital photography was gaining popularity. Photography is the reason why I started my own creative agency. Through it all, I knew that the internet was the way forward for entertainment and in 2006 came up with Nautanki.tv with two others.

We were in the 10 best business ideas in India that year as per leading business magazines. It was a bad partnership, so I walked out and started Sutra.tv. In Sutra, we made multilingual content that received appreciation. These two experiences gave me a new direction and I ended up getting into direction and production of Marathi films. Post that I also dabbled into AD films, Corporate films,” he says, before talking about his association with producer and storyteller Nilanjana Purkayasstha.

Together they decided to get into TV content together with Invictus Mediaworks. Their latest show is Chikoo ki Mummy Durr Ki.

“When I met Nilanjana, we would often discuss content and the potential TV has a medium. So that’s how slowly our collaboration worked out. Another passion of mine is history. I’m a history buff and I am a visiting faculty for a PG program in leadership, politics and governance. I also give a lot of talks in various forums and lit fests about the true history and mainly what we can learn through history.

This knowledge of history was a natural progression to the historicals we made for TV. So everything I ever did has led me to the current place that I am today,” he adds.
Herumb then became a director by accident.

“My friend Rahul Thackeray and I loved a story that we wanted to produce as a comedy film and along the way we realised that we couldn’t find people to translate what we wanted to create. So, we wrote and directed it together. It was a serious political thriller which we made into a crazy campus comedy that was way ahead of its time. After that I wrote and directed the thriller Game Over,” he says.

Talking about their future plans, Herumb adds, “There are loads that we are working on. We are planning historicals, more TV content, short format content, OTT and emerging media content as well. On a personal front, I am working on my pet project, ‘History Trippin’ that delves into the true history of our great nation and what the next generation can learn and also get to know about our spiritual heritage.”

Having done shows like Miley Jab Hum Tum, 12/24 Karol Bagh, Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, The Buddy Project etc over the years, Sudhir Sharma has come a long way. He has seen the industry evolve. Meanwhile, his latest production Ziddi Dil Maane Na is doing well.

“People are scared of taking risks and just want to follow the last hit format. It’s quite evident from the viewing pattern on TV and in the growing numbers on OTT platforms that our audiences are looking for more variety and different storytelling” he adds. While many think that the content on television has evolved considerably, he feels otherwise.

“I don’t agree with this. Many shows are similar to what it used to be 10 years back. We are still making almost similar stuff. And the saas-bahu era isn’t over. It seems there are only few takers for progressive and realistic content,” he says, adding that it’s time that we become realistic, explore the unexplored and experiment as the audience is ready.

Talking more about the changes he thinks should be incorporated in daily soaps, he shares, “We must narrate different stories. At least we must try! Engaging stories of hope and happiness, stories of real drama in our lives should be touched upon.”
