Television as a medium is always a shocker for any film actor, given the erratic working hours and lack of a bound script. Rahul, however, is enjoying the grind of a daily soap as he feels it will improve him as a performer.

“I am loving it. I wasn’t used to shooting for five-six scenes in a day, so that is definitely a shocker. But because of that I am getting to hone my skills. It is shaping me up as a better actor,” he said.
