Cameos don't affect actor's identity: Saurabh Goyal

Mumbai, Nov 22 (IANS) Television actor Saurabh Goyal, who is set for a cameo in "Parvarrish: Kuchh Khatti Kuchh Meethi", doesn't think such appearances hamper the identity of an actor in any way.

"Personally, I don't think a cameo role takes a toll on the identity of an actor in any way. I have come to Bombay to work and as long as the work is good, I don't mind it. I don't think it creates an image that you can't get big roles," he told IANS.

"Parvarrish...", aired on Sony, revolves around two families and the challenges they face while raising their children. It features Shweta Tiwari, Rupali Ganguly, Vivek Mushran and Vishal Singh in prominent roles.

Talking about his role in the show, Saurabh said, "The role is of a classical music teacher. Rupali Ganguly, who plays the mother in the show, realises that she can't sing well and has enough free time, so she decides to learn classical singing. And I play her teacher," he said.

The 26−year−old actor has been trained under Barry John Acting Studio and has been a part of 15 short films, three TVCs and an independent film, which is under production at the moment.

A qualified engineer, Saurabh found the acting bug compelled him to give up his well−off corporate job and pursue his passion.

"While doing engineering, I was interested in acting. I used to take out time for theatre rehearsals. I did theatre during the last two years of my engineering. I got placed in Infosys, but I chose my passion and I got involved in acting," he said.

Saurabh feels television is a medium, which helps him get the right feedback as an actor.

"I think for an actor, TV is the fastest medium to reach the masses. So I can reach the masses through the shows, and show them how I can do things differently. It also provides good feedback. I know how the audience will react to me, so it provides a good learning experience," he said.

As of now, the actor says has some projects in the pipeline but cannot reveal about it as nothing is confirmed yet.
