Exclusive: 'We As Actors Need The Limelight, But Children Should Be Kept Away' - Angad Bedi

Shubanka Sridhar , 24 Dec 2019

Angad Bedi has been an actor who constantly proves his mettle as an artist with each film or role he takes up. From his performance in the film Pink to his much-revered stint in the Amazon show, Inside Edge, he has gotten everyone to sit up and take notice of his acting chops.

Talking about his character and how a lot of people have told him that he reminded them of his father and retired cricketer, Bishan Singh Bedi, Angad says that there are just certain things that are just present in your DNA, and though he might not have been up to his father’s level, he worked hard on his role and says that Arvind Vashishthh is his ode to his father and that it was an emotional journey in that regard.

He says:

It is my ode to my father. My father wanted me to lead an integral life. Be upright, be hardworking. He always wanted whatever I do in life, I don’t let my family name down. And I think it’s the same with Arvind Vashishthh’s character in Inside Edge.

That’s sweet, no?! Angad is all about his family, and when it comes to his wife and daughter, he is a doting husband and father and it is heartwarming when he says that being married and starting a family is the most gratifying feeling in the world.

Now, I had to ask about the one thing we all want to know – about why he and his wife, Neha have chosen to not show their child’s face on social media – he says that as actors, they do call the media to be relevant and photographed.`

But talking about their decision to not let Mehr in the limelight, he says:

We as actors are slightly narcissistic at the end of the day and want to be in the limelight. And, there is nothing wrong in that. But, I think the children should be kept away because a child needs to go out and become something in life and earn it before they are termed ‘celebrity children’. I am sweating it out and building my career in cinema and I would want my daughter to earn this fame in the same way.

Love how he put it, and totally agree with it, right?

Angad is all set to start the new year with Dharma‘s Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl opposite Janhvi Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi directed by Sharan Sharma. We absolutely can’t wait to see him on screen and take up many more interesting and challenging projects in 2020!
