In an exclusive conversation with ETimes, Jaideep shared his excitement on winning the prestigious award and also talked about the shows that he binged-watched at home during the lockdown.
Excerpts from the chat…
You won the Best Actor for your performance in ‘Paatal Lok’ at Flyx Filmfare OTT Awards 2020. How do you feel about all the love coming your way?
It feels great to be a part of such a great series. The writers, producers, co-actors, Sudip Sir and the entire team, it’s amazing to be working with such talented people and am very grateful to god.
What have you learnt in 2020?
I haven’t tried to learn anything new during the pandemic but one thing that we all have learnt this year is that health is the primary thing in our lives. I just wish that everyone stays safe and for the coming year I just wish everyone to have a healthy and happy life.
Describe 2020 in a sentence.
A boon in disguise
Shows that you binged watched during the lockdown.
I have watched may things like Spy, Lucifer, Bandish Bandits, Scam 1992, Family Man, Mirzapur 2 and many new things which were released.
If you were granted three wishes for 2021, what might they be?
I’ll keep that to myself and
woh nahi bataunga main kyuki woh bolte hai na, ke wish kabhi batate nahi. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed but I wish that everyone stays happy and healthy because that’s the only thing that matters and
baki cheezein life main hote rehte hai.
