March 31, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): TV actor Abhinav Shukla is keen to study Director Of Photography (DOP). The actor is not just interested in acting, but wantes to do something more. He is looking forward to take admission in a New York school to learn photography.
Abhinav will be essaying a grey shaded role as an NRI in Star One’s upcoming fiction named Geet- Sabse Hui Parayi, which will be his last show on small screen because this guy craves for something other than acting in dailies.
In a face-to-face chat, when we asked Abhinav about his character in the show, he says, “Even though I have never been abroad but just because of my look, I bag certain roles of NRI’s. It might be my similar style that makes me look like some ‘foreign return’ guy. But acting is really not what I actually want to do, I had certain plans before coming to this glamour field but now I have made my mind to head back to initial my plans.”
What exactly are your plans? “Well, I have planned to fly abroad as I have interest in being a D.O.P (Directors of Photography) and not an actor and thus soon after the show, I will be taking an admission into the D.O.P course at New York University. So, this show will be my last show after which I will drive my own way to the destiny what I actually wanted.”
Well it’s a bad news for Abhinav’s fans that they won’t get to see more of him after the show. But still guys, we never know!
