Hostel Daze season 3 was released last week and garnered praise and applause from around the country. Ahsaas Channa, Luv Vispute, Shubham Gaur, Nikhil Vijay, and Ayushi Gupta have been seen reprising their roles in the series, while Utsav is the newest addition to the show.

The actor replaces Adarsh Gourav and plays one of the pivotal characters, Ankit. When asked how welcoming or challenging it has been for him, he replied, "I would say, it was very relaxing and there was no pressure as such to do something huge or extraordinary because the character is pretty close to me. It's just that some other actor played that character and now I am playing that character. So it was quite simple for me and I took it very organically and not like pressure. I tried to showcase 'Ankit' according to me."

When we asked him if he credits OTTs as one of the biggest help to make him land this TVF show, the actor replied, "Absolutely. I think OTT and specifically TVF. I remember during my college days, I used to watch those sketches by TVF on YouTube, which arrived even before Permanent Roommates (a Sumeet Vyas and Nishi Singh starrer show) and while watching those we used to think and see if we fit in any of the TVF characters. OTT has boomed quite a lot and TVF has grown too."

Stream all the seasons of this comedy-drama series on Amazon Prime Video.
