Pankit Thakker, the blue-eyed boy of Indian television, who was loved as ‘The Champ’ in the Star One daily soap ‘Dill Mill Gayye’, will now be seen playing a pivotal role in another mega daily soap titled ‘Dharampatni’ on Imagine TV from this week.
The story is inspired from the times shared by Mahatma Gandhi and his wife Kasturba, before Gandhiji emerged as the Father of the Nation.
Pankit, who plays the role of the eldest of three brothers, is super excited. “It’s a challenging role, and I’ve been working on my look, style, personality and diction for it. I’ve even put on a lot of weight to get into the skin of the character. I hope the audience appreciates my efforts this time as well,” says the versatile young gun.
Earlier, apart from ‘Dill Mill Gayye’, Pankit has charmed the television community with memorable characters in many successful shows like ‘Kabhi Sauten Kabhi Saheli’ and ‘Kumkum – Pyara Sa Bandhan’ (Star Plus), ‘Tum Bin Jaaoon Kahaan’ (Zee TV), ‘Special Squad’ and ‘India Calling’ (Star One). Lets see what ‘Dharampatni’ has in store for him now.
