Mumbai: As the makers of `Sanskaar: Dharohar Apnon Ki` are bringing the curtain down on the show, lead actor Jay Soni has gone down memory lane and fondly remembers the good times he had while shooting for it.

"’Sanskaar’ was a very good experience for me. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Shooting in the US was something which I will always remember. Every show has a memory and for me, the best time was when we were shooting in the US," Jay told IANS.

The actor, who has been seen in shows like `Sasural Genda Phool`, and `Dharti Ka Veer Yodha Prithviraj Chauhan`, said that now he wants to take up more challenging roles.

"Now, I would like to do more challenging role...something different... but if I get similar roles, I will accept it as audience has loved me in these roles," said Jay.

"I want to do more performance-oriented roles like how Ranbir was in ‘Barfi!’ and ‘Rockstar’. I know TV does not offer such roles, but if it does, then I would want to do something like that,” he added.

Jay is keen on performance-based roles as they give him creative satisfaction. He hopes to work with directors like Anurag Basu, Imtiaz Ali and Dibakar Banerjee some day.

"I want to do something which is performance-based. This gives me creative satisfaction. I want to work with Anurag Basu, Imtiaz Ali and Dibakar Banerjee. I don`t even mind assisting them. I just want to see how they work," he said.

The 26-year-old, who once acted in a youth-based show `Remix`, said that TV channels are focussing more on drama than youth now.

"Nowadays normal channels, they do more of drama and family-based shows. In these shows only, they try to keep little bit of youth characters. Youth shows do well, but are not accepted so much. This is why they have to come on Channel V and other similar channels," he said.

Talking about future plans, the actor is planning to take a holiday after his show gets over.

"As of now, I am getting calls and all, but I will take time and see what to do next. I will go on a holiday after this show gets over and see what to do next," said Jay.
