I believe, to essay a character that is absolutely contrasting to your real life persona is not an easy job; and this is exactly what Punit Tareja does in the popular comedy serial ‘Badi Dooooor Se Aaye Hain’ that airs on SAB TV.
Hemant Ghotala is always grinning and, well, a simpleton. On the other hand, Punit, who essays the much endearing character, is quite reserved and shy, and was to appear for his final Chartered Accountants examinations when he decided to turn to acting.
This is just a gist of how contrasting Hemant and Punit are!
