Pranav Sachdeva gives an evil twist to Shah Rukh Khan's character in Darr
- Planet Bollywood Special Correspondant           Let us know what you think about this story

"Jadoo teri nazar, khushboo tera badan, tu haan kar, ya naa kar, tu hai meri Kiran," sang the obsessive Shah Rukh Khan in Yash Chopra's Darr... and the rest is history.

Many actors have tried to ape the psycho lover Rahul that Shah Rukh played on silver screen, but it has never been attempted on television. That is changing with Pranav Sachdeva's key role as the two-faced character he plays in Deepak Sharma's show Agar Tum Saath Ho, produced by Gulshan Sachdeva for the revamped Zindagi channel.

"It is a love triangle with a difference," says Pranav, adding that he has tried to enact the role with further nuances. "Ironically, my character in the soap is called Ram, a name people relate with extreme goodness. Ram too is a great guy until he gets obsessive in love, so much so that he becomes tormenting," reveals Pranav.

The actor points out that "Rahul of Darr was an eccentric stalker. He was possessive, bordering on psychotic. In spite of all the similarities, Ram is different. He is evil in a much less obvious way. He's not a psycho or a stalker, but is immensely selfish and wicked, yet charismatic and witty. He uses his charm and corporate business power to find his way out of situations."

"But like Rahul, Ram only cares about what he wants and gives two hoots about the other guy. These are shades which makes him scarier." Come to think of it, such were the shades that made Khan's iconic character of Darr start off as charmingly crazy, only to turn eerily spooky by the end.
