Popular TV actor Aamir Ali, who will be seen in a new show Navrangi Re!, says he wants to explore different mediums and challenging roles and is glad about the experimental work that is happening in the entertainment world. “I am actually quite excited about the new phase in cinema and digital entertainment where so much experimental work is happening. I want to explore every medium — whether it is film, TV or a web series,” Aamir said.
“All I want is a role that really challenges me to go on the floor. My resolution of 2019 is to work in different projects, as my fans know that I did not appear in any show for the last one year,” he added.
Having started his career as a model in 2002, Aamir made his television debut with the show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai. He, then, featured in shows like Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki, Kya Dill Mein Hai and F.I.R. to name few. He also participated in reality shows including Zara Nachke Dikha and Power Couple. However, the actor was last seen in the TV show Sarojini in 2016.
Asked about the reason behind taking a break, he said, “I have been working for quite some time, so, of course, there was a point when I wanted to explore something different. I have worked on different genres — comedy, drama, dance performance, but, taking a pause was important due to physical and mental fatigue. Now, I am all ready again.”
The show Navrangi Re!, which will air on Rishtey channel, addresses the issue of sanitation and open defecation. Talking about his reasons to choose this show for his comeback, Aamir said, “Well, firstly, the cause, then a production house like Swastik Productions, the association of Viacom18 and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation… It is a project that has great exposure, so, I couldn’t have asked for more,” said the 41-year-old-actor.
In the show, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor is making a special appearance. “Anil ji is such an energetic and enigmatic personality. It was lovely meeting him. He is a very nice human being to be around,” he concluded.
