In real life, I'd like to be a dad like Jeet: Vishal Singh

New Delhi, Jan 21 (IANS) Television actor Vishal Singh aka Jeet Ahuja of "Parvarrish - Kuchh Khattee Kuchh Meethi", a show about parents-children relationship, connects with his character in the show and would like to be the same kind of parent in real life.

Best remembered for his role in "Dekh Bhai Dekh", the actor who is still single, said: "When I will become a father, I will be exactly the way I play my character Jeet in the show. My friends, who are fathers also can relate to him."

He says he enjoyed a very friendly bonding with his own father.

"My father was exactly like the character I play in 'Parvarrish'," said Vishal who is seen as an open-minded and understanding father to his three children in the show.

"My father was of the mindset that children should be always encouraged to take their own decisions. When I was a child, I was never bogged down by my parents. They always left it up to me to take the final call. My parents were like friends to me," the 38-year-old told IANS.

Appreciating the younger generation parents, he said that they are like friends to their children and added: "The new generation understands things much better. It is good."

Vishal plays actress Rupali Ganguly's husband in the show that shows how they struggle to understand their children's dreams and desire and try to give them the right upbringing.

Talking about the kind of equation he shares with the kids on the sets, he said: "Me and other co-stars gel very well and it is not during the show, but on the sets also it is the same.

"The kids come to me discuss their problems. I advise them and help them with all the issues. The kids look up to to all as their mentors. It is very sweet," he said.
