He might play intimidating roles on TV but actor Ram Kapoor says in real life he is a very sensitive human being.
Ram Kapoor, 41, who is known for his roles in shows like 'Bade Achhe Lagte Hain' and 'Kasamh Se', said it is important for an artiste to be sensitive to bring out right emotions.
"I am a very sensitive person. If you are an artiste you have to be sensitive. If you are not romantic and sensitive, you cannot be a good artiste. If you are in a creative field, you have to be sensitive. I cry in theatres and I have no qualms about it. I have been taught not to control that and use it rather," Ram said.
His sensitive attitude helped him portray the role of a doting husband to a cancer-stricken wife on the upcoming show "Dil Ki Baatein".
"I didn't do any preparation for my role because I am a married man with children. I connected to my role very quickly. I try to connect it with my real life in every way. I have not done this kind of role earlier," he said.
The "Humshakals" star feels privileged to play the leading man on a show which has been conceptualised by Mahesh Bhatt as the director's "Saaransh" inspired him to become an actor.
"I am privileged to be a part of Bhatt sahab's show. I am a big fan of his films. I am lucky that I am getting to do this phenomenal subject. It's a dream come true for me to be the actor of one of Bhatt's creation," he said.
Ram, who is currently shooting the new show, said it gave him a deeper understanding of life.
"After reading the script and shooting it, I suddenly feel I can do anything for my loved ones. I feel all my shows help me to grow as a human being. I am 41 and I have to explore more. But with this show (Dil Ki Baatein) I got a deeper inside of me," he said.
As the story of the new show progresses, it takes a cue from Bhatt's other film "Daddy" and explores the father-daughter relationship as well apart from the husband-wife link.
"When I enter the second phase of the show, you won't be able to differentiate who is the parent and the child. They have to play both the roles time to time, which I find very interesting because I am a father of a daughter in real life," he said.
