Acting is an art and stage has given me a chance to understand it better, feels actor Anang Desai. Asked if living the character for almost 16 years — as the show first went on air in 2002 — was challenging, Anang said: “The challenge was to keep the freshness of the character alive. I would say that every actor should have a basic experience of theatre, even though in future they want to work in cinema.” His entertaining character as ‘Babuji’ will be presented in a fresh way in the new season of the show.
