Can you tell us about your character, Raghav, and what makes him interesting?

Raghav is a captivating character in 'Pashminna - Dhaage Mohobbat Ke.' Professionally, he has a great sense of business and has always been entirely devoted to his work.

Raghav doesn't believe in love. How did you prepare to play a character like that, and what's the most exciting or difficult part about it?

Preparing to play a character like Raghav, who doesn't believe in love, was challenging. I had to dive deep into his backstory, trying to fathom his past encounters and the reasons behind his scepticism. The most exciting part of the role is showcasing how he changes over time; however, it’s tough to make sure his emotions feel just right. It’s like walking a tightrope, trying to make his transformation feel real to the audience. In the end, playing Raghav has been an exciting experience. It has tested my acting skills and allowed me to understand a character with very different views about love than I do.

Filming in Kashmir was a special experience. The place is incredibly beautiful and has influenced how I acted as Raghav. Kashmir's peaceful and stunning scenery became a big part of Raghav's world in the story, making it even more enjoyable. As an actor, I found myself absorbing the calmness and grandeur of Kashmir, allowing it to seep into Raghav's persona. This natural backdrop became a silent, yet powerful character in itself, shaping Raghav's emotions and interactions. It provided a unique canvas for storytelling, enriching the narrative and making it even more captivating for the audience.


In the show, Raghav's life changes when he meets Pashminna. Can you give us a peek into their relationship and how it changes over time?

Raghav and Pashminna's relationship is a rollercoaster ride that takes viewers on an emotional journey. Initially, their interactions are clouded by misunderstandings and differences, creating tension and uncertainty.
