A segment where your favourite actors look into their psyche and answer some questions that they haven't perhaps asked themselves as well in a while !!! The star we have picked this time is Harshad Chopra, your Mohan Gala from Dharampatni on Imagine TV, who answered the questions spontaneously as he felt that's when he gives in his best ! Over to Harshad...
Rangmunch.TV: What is that you need to change about yourself?
Harshad: I think I am very hard on myself. I follow a very strict disciplinewhen it comes to me and myself. May be if there is one thing that I need tochange it could be that.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you crib and complain?
Harshad: No, I don’t complain much.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you take risks?
Harshad: What seems like a risk to others has fortunately not been a risk inmy case. Risks have always worked in my favour. So I don’t know, if itcounts as taking risks since, when you want to do something badly followingthe path you want and doing it becomes easier.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you thank people enough?
Harshad: Yes, I do.
Rangmunch.TV: What is the craziest thing you want to do?
Harshad: I can’t tell you what is the craziest thing I want to do, but I cantell you what's the craziest thing I have done so far, (continues after aslight pause and says) I stole something and the person is still unaware.
Rangmunch.TV: Who has had the greatest impact on your life?
Harshad: Somewhere at the back of my mind I always knew I wanted tobe an actor. And a lot of people have impacted me, but if I can think of onename it would be Salman Khan. I look upto him as my Mentor.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you procrastinate (postpone things for the future)?
Harshad: Well more than often (laughs). Infact there was a time when dueto the work timings, my bill payments use to keep getting delayed, be it mymobile bill, the internet bill but thanks to technology and online billpayments which has made life so much more simpler and easy for peoplelike us.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you let other people’s negativity effect you?
Harshad: No, instead I have heard most people say, that I end up liftingtheir moods up and turning them into positive souls (laughs).
Rangmunch.TV: Do you smile more than you frown?
Harshad: Well as you can see for yourself, I do smile more than I frown.(smiles wide)
Rangmunch.TV: Do you take time out for yourself?
Harshad: To be honest I am a workaholic and when I am not shooting I liketo stay home. I am not a party animal and hence you will not see meattending too many parties. After my pack up, I go back home and spend theremaining hours with myself. I love working out and I owe that time tomyself.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you forgive yourself easily?
Harshad: No, I am very hard on myself and self-discipline is most importantto me.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you listen to your heart?
Harshad: Since more than often I am unable to know the difference betweenwhat my heart says and what my head does, I don’t know how to answerthis question best.
Rangmunch.TV: Do you read enough?
Harshad: (laughs and says) I only read my scripts.
Rangmunch.TV: One thing you are grateful for in life.
Harshad: Everything!! I am grateful for everything that life has bestowedupon me.
