Pranav Sachdeva enjoys seducing married woman in 'Delhiciously Chekhov'

Television actor Pranav Sachdeva is on a different kind of high. A simpleton in real life, he remarks that he's "thoroughly enjoying being devilish in reel life."

 

After playing a double-faced character in the daily soap Agar Tum Saath Ho on the revamped Zindagi channel, Pranav is again playing dual roles in a new play called Delhiciously Chekhov, starring veteran actor Tom Alter.

Being staged exclusively in the Indian capital, Delhiciously Chekhov is a tribute to Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, the Russian playwright and short-story writer, who is considered to be one of the greatest writers of short fiction in playwright history.

 

"I play a father in the first half who wants to make a man out of his 19-year old son and so, takes him to a woman," says Pranav. "As if that is not eww enough, the second half of the play has me playing a notorious bachelor, giving a live and practical demonstration on how to seduce a beautiful young woman with a little help from her husband."

 

"I know what you would be thinking. That this fellow is the scum of the earth. But to me, a good actor is a person who can even play that," Pranav quips like a smart alec, defining his most obnoxious roles.

 

The play's director Raj Upadhyay praises the actor for being able to carry off roles that may make the audience feel uneasy in their seats. "Pranav creates fire on stage with his presence and energy. He explores his characters like someone is finding water in a desert. His sense of improvisation is remarkable."

 

Turns out, Delhiciously Chekhov is not the only play the actor is doing. Come March, and Pranav will be playing the role of another veteran actor Asrani's son in a comic play called The Makkhi-Choos.

Mumbai/Kolkata, December 14, 2016: Tata Motors, India’s leading Commercial Vehicle manufacturer, recently completed training of over 200 candidates under the Prime Minister’s Udaan Scheme, through ‘Tata Motors Certified Works Manager’programme.

Through this initiative, we aim to provide job opportunities to over 1300 youth in Jammu and Kashmir, in the next 5 years.
