I was initially hesitant to play negative role: Vatsal Sheth

Actor Vatsal Sheth, who plays a negative role of a spoiled brat in TV show 'Ek Hasina Thi', says he was initially sceptical to play the character because he has a 'good boy' image onscreen.

New Delhi: Actor Vatsal Sheth, who plays a negative role of a spoiled brat in TV show 'Ek Hasina Thi', says he was initially sceptical to play the character because he has a 'good boy' image onscreen.

"I essay the role of Shaurya Goenka, who is a spoiled rich brat and an arrogant playboy. He is unlike a hero. Shaurya is an edgy character and a contrast from the good guy I have played so far.

"I didn't really expect that the character will be receive well. I was initially confused to take up the role because I never thought that I could pull off a negative character," Vatsal said.

The 34-year-old actor, who got his big break in Bollywood with 'Tarzan - The Wonder Car', followed it up with 'Nainhe Jaisalmer' and 'Heroes and Hostel', made his TV debut with the Star Plus show.

"I chose the show because I found the script engaging. The characters are very unique on the show. Even if we talk about my character, it's not an out-and-out negative role. He is a lovable negative guy," he said.

Currently on the show, Vatsal is paralysed and wheelchair bound. "I am lucky that there are so many variations to the character. It's a learning experience for me to act on a wheelchair. As I cannot move, I have to act through my facial expressions," he said.

Also starring Sanjeeda Sheikh, Bhuvnesh Mann, Simone Singh and Ayub Khan, the show is a revenge drama where Sanjeeda's character is seeking to avenge the rape of her sister by Shaurya.
