Raavan is a ‘larger than life' character: Karthik Jayaram (By Medsuper)


 Karthik Jayaram, the popular actor in Kannada industry has adapted very well to the Hindi small screen, and has been appreciated as Raavan in Nikhil Sinha’s ongoing show on Star Plus, Siya Ke Ram.

The actor has been in the limelight ever since he bagged the role, and recognition is now coming from all over, even from world wide for Karthik.

Talking about the acceptance of masses and classes, for his role of Raavan, the actor said, “It feels great to be playing Raavan as it is one of the best antagonistic characters in the world history. I feel blessed to play Raavan. When I got the role, I decided to look into few books of Asura and Raavan for more details. I worked a lot to create a unique mannerism of Raavan. My facial expressions got better, as I used to stand hours together in front of the mirror to get them right. Also I read more of Hindi to understand the language better. Above all, I took a crash course on taandav.”

For Karthik, it was the character of Raavan that pushed him to lap it up. “I feel every individual has good and bad characterisitics. It is the situation that makes them to react. This is why Raavan’s character is so very relatable. If you look at me, I too get ego issues, and tend to become arrogant. The best aspect of Raavan is that he is ‘larger than life’.”

Karthik is a workaholic to the core, and feels it too tough to get out of the character, when he is not shooting. “There are times when I come out of my character only when I sleep (laughs).”

The best compliment for Karthik has come from the fact that he is called as a ‘cute’ Raavan. Talking about other memorable fan moments, the actor explained, “A crazy kid fan from USA called me, to only listen to my huge laughter; she is so very fond of me. And a fan has erected a huge Raavan’s hoarding in front of my house and that was a surprise.”

Karthik is thankful to Star Plus and his Producers Nikhil and Sohanna Sinha for giving him global recognition through Siya Ke Ram. “I feel this is certainly a leap to my future opportunities. Nikhil Sinha is a passionate director and made me very comfortable as this was my first Hindi TV show. I have learnt a lot from him. Sohanna Sinha has been a wonderful person, and has taken care of Raavan’s look and character very well.”

Lastly, Karthik appreciates the hard-working actor in Ashish Sharma. “He is a very professional guy, very friendly and sweet. There have been times when we have worked out together also.”

Karthik, enjoy your success and stardom!!
