The actor, who shot to fame as Raj Purohit together with his debut present Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, was final seen in Divya Drishti. Anandi Baa Aur Emily revolves round a typical Gujarati household during which Mishkat performs Aarav, who’s the apple of his mother’s eye and has just one dream in life – to go to America. But his mom by no means needs to see his dream fulfilled and Emily turns into his solely ticket to America. Ask him if he has ever confronted such a scenario in actual life and the actor replies, “No, no. They are very happy with whoever I am with.”
Television world appears to be treating Mishkat nicely and he has no complaints about how issues have been for him. He says, “I haven’t been through any struggle of that kind. I belong to Mumbai and live with my parents. I have strong family support in my career, my basic needs are very well looked after. It does take time to sign a show and work to come my way but my other requirements are very well met. Luckily, I don’t face any struggle like those who come from other cities, they pay rent for accommodation and give their entire salary to the owner. My parents do a lot for me, I am very lucky that way.”
What does he search for in roles then. He says with out batting an eyelid, “I look for the channel and the production house that’s making it and the role I am offered, if it’s the leading part or not. Also, the money I am being offered is what I look for.”
The actor has turn out to be a well-recognized face on tv together with his reveals like Nisha Aur Uske Cousins, Yeh Hai Aashiqui, Ichhapyaari Naagin, Laal Ishq and Shaadi Ke Siyape. However, he isn’t harbouring a dream to make it huge in Bollywood, in contrast to lots of his TV pals, and is completely happy doing what he does greatest. “I am not at all awestruck by films, if they come, well and good; if they don’t, its absolutely fine. I am happy doing television for the rest of my life. TV is the number one medium for me. I would rather do a fantastic film, else I am happy doing TV,” he says.
Mishkat began with modelling, went on to function in a gentle drink industrial and bagged a tv present quickly after. He is conscious of the trolling confronted by celebrities over the commercials they function in, like endorsements for tobacco manufacturers. He refuses to guage them for a similar. He says, “It’s the personal choice of an actor. He is an actor, not a moral science teacher. The viewer should also use their mind. If an actor is endorsing a tobacco brand but is doing several other good things apart from that, its your fault if you are judging him for that ad. If Shah Rukh Khan has featured in a tobacco ad, he also does a lot of philanthropic work and charity, Akshay Kumar also does so much charity. We must not try to hold on to it or bring them down. Look at the right things they do.”
