Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Vinay Jain says he does not identify with the characters he plays

Even after more than a decade, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai(YRKKH) is still going strong. The much loved series remained a fan favourite even after the actors and protagonists changed with the seasons. Vinay Jain presently essays a pivotal role in the drama, starring as Harshvardhan Birla. The actor recently opened up about the character, as well as some of other recent roles.

In conversation with TellyChakkar, the actor revealed that he did not ‘agree’ with most of the characters he portrayed. Saying that he was much more embracing and not at all judgemental in real life, Jain said that he never had any desire to change people and was much more compassionate than his characters.

He gave examples of his characters in Ishq Subhanallah and Swabhimaan, saying that they were all complete ‘opposites’ to him. He said his Swabhimaan character reminded him a lot of Harshvardhan, both of them being controlling towards their wives. “I would never do that, I don't subscribe to what these characters do by a long shot,” he said.

But although the actor does not identify with his characters, he does find them interesting to play. He talked about how YRKKH gave him a chance to try comedy after a long time, and that he was thankful to the writers for that opportunity. Jain said that he always attempted to bring more depth into his character in the show whenever possible.

Regarding the show’s huge popularity, the actor talked about how YRKKH had ratings some other shows took years to achieve. Jain said that the show ought to be a case study, as it had good ratings even after being on air for so long.
