Its astonishing how Harshad Chopda manages to perform amazingly & look brilliant at the same time: Ami Trivedi

Star Plus show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ has kept the fans glued to the TV screens. The current track of the show revolves around Abhimanyu and Akshara finally getting married. The show has an exciting ensemble with an eclectic mix of brilliant performers and the best part is, they don’t shy away from appreciating their co-actors.

India Forums got in touch with actress Ami Trivedi who plays the character of Manjari Birla in the show. We asked the actress about her thoughts on her co-star Harshad Chopda and Trivedi showered praises on him.

When asked about the preps for her scenes with Harshad, Ami said, “Honestly, with Harshad, there’s no off-screen prep as such. I admire him a lot as an actor because he is so brilliant, natural, effortless and subtle with his performance that the guy wins’ hearts. When I joined the show, I was doing a daily soap after a long gap as I was mostly doing the comedy genre. Somewhere, I felt that I’ve lost the touch with daily-soaps”.

She added, “I used to observe Harshad perform as he is liked by my family and friends the most among the entire cast of the show. I always tell him that I’m learning from you. Infact, I also asked me to suggest me anything to improve my craft, if at all he felt like. I told him that he is watching me act very closely and can recommend things to me. The best part is that when we shoot together, a lot of things come very naturally to us. When we do rehearsals, they’re bland and just a revision of our dialogues but when the director orders an ‘action’, we’re totally different and we both get involved and perform with a lot of emotions”.

She further added, “Whatever I react in certain scenes is all thanks to what I get from him. He is an actor par excellence. He is very amazing with his craft. I am learning a lot from him and I’m sure I will continue learning from him because he tends to surprise us all with different things that he does. His improvisations are so apt. He never goes overboard. He is just perfect in everything and he always gets me thinking as to how he manages to do those incredible things and look brilliant at the same time”.
