'On-screen romance, I guess, comes naturally to me': Namik Paul

Telly journalism’s loss has been fiction-entertainment TV’s mega-gain. Former TV journalist, yes, the super-tall (6’4”) smart and handsome TV star-actor Namik Paul, the heart-throb of lakhs of females, while he played the suave Shravan’ in ‘Ek Duuje Ke Vaaste’ and later was seen in ‘Ek Deewana Tha’ in a dual role, is ready for his next innings. The affable Paul has now bagged the lead role in Ekta Kapoor’s latest romantic thriller on Colors titled ‘Kawach 2 Mahashivratri’. This new show ‘Kawach…’ will air from May 25th on Colors, every Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm. The Afternoon D&C caught up with articulate Namik who seems grounded as he opens up for a candid chat. Excerpts:

The religious title ‘Kawach Mahashivratri’ initially gave the impression that it was a more of a mytho…
(Smiles). That’s what has intrigued almost everyone that it is actually a modern romantic scare-fare thriller. ‘Kawach-2.....’ on Colors will tread the path of the unknown and delve into the lives of Sandhya (played by Deepika Singh), Angad (that’s me) and Kapil (Vin Rana plays this role) who’re caught in a complicated relationship due to the torment invoked by supernatural forces.

Please carry on ...
Our new show with fresh story chronicles the life of Sandhya, a girl who believes in true love and finds her soul-mate in my character However, in a turn of events she realizes that she is on the brink of impending doom. An inauspicious hour, on a mystic Mahashivratri night, unleashes the supernatural forces onto Sandhya’s life which wreaks havoc in her paradise and further complicates her relationship with the love of her life which is Angad (my character).

What is the khaas baat about your character?
My character Angad is that of a corporate big-wig businessman who is pure at heart, never shy of expressing himself. He never bows down to anything wrong but stands by the people he cares for. Being a love-story, it will be good news for my ardent female fans, who feel that I am so natural, at on-screen-romance.

How is the religious festival ‘Shivraatri’ connected with your character?
No, not me it’s character Sandhya who is more deeply connected with Shivraatri in this show. In fact she is mera pyaar ka protective kawach as well, because it’s our passionate love-story. Off-screen I am a spiritual person is all I can share.

The discreet reason that you were cast in ‘Kawach...2’ and not in ‘Kasauti Zindagi Kay-2’ is..
Hmmm... I was expecting this (smiles). Actually it was destiny’s blessing in disguise. Out here in ‘Kawach’ which is a super-naturaI thriller, I am a playing a different role of a lead character. Besides, it’s coming in the same popular slot of ‘Naagin 3’. If Ekta Kapoor ma’am earnestly felt that I was better suited for playing Angad, then I fully trust her judgment.

Off-screen you seem to be fond of cats and dogs, right?
Besides my love for work-outs and martial arts, I have a fond penchant for dogs. They are like my buddies and my stress-buster and I love to spend leisure time with dogs and cats.
