The show catapulted the career of the already talented actor and his character has become arguably one of the most popular Indian television characters of all time. But there was a chance that none of this ever happened.
Fazal recently sat down with Filmfare, and revealed that he was instantly drawn to the character of Guddu, but was first offered the role of Munna, now played by Divyenndu. “I was stuck on Guddu. I was offered another part at the start. I think it was Munna’s role, which Divyenndu did. At that time, I was so invested in Guddu because I felt like there was so much I could add to it, ”he said. Filmfare.
He also revealed how he tried to distance himself from the role by making an excuse. “I really like the parts that are unpredictable for me. If I can understand the whole journey in my head, then it’s no fun. There will be no teamwork because I’m not the only person. So I made an excuse. I said I didn’t have a date, something happened. So I left. Then I got a reminder later, saying we want to see, let’s try this, ”he added.
