Mumbai, April 9 -- Mohit Malik has come a long way. The actor has worked in TV shows such as Miilee, Dill Mill Gayye, Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya, Banoo Main Teri Dulhann, and Doli Armaano Ki, as well as dance reality shows Nach Baliye and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, and after more than a decade in the television industry, he is still going strong. But he didn't have an easy start - his first show never saw the light of day.

 

"My journey so far has been a learning process. There have been lots of ups and downs. In fact, my career started with a show that never took off. It was called Kahan Hoon Main, and that was the reason I came to Mumbai. I had even shot for it," says the actor, who is originally from Delhi.

 

"Then, Miilee happened, and on that show, I met my wife Addite (Shirwaikar, actor). It was after this show that things fell into place."

 

When asked which show gave him the most popularity, Mohit says, "If I have to name one, it's Doli Armaano Ki. People loved the character (of Samrat Singh Rathore) despite it being negative, and that surprised me. I think people liked that there was a humorous side to a grey character."

 

Mohit shares that he never had worries about being typecast. "Agar aapko kaam aata hain to aap kabhi typecast nahi honge (If you know how to do the job, you'll never be typecast). There's so much to do on TV. If you have the talent, you can also portray romantic characters differently. I've done all that. And when I thought I had played too many positive roles, I decided to play a negative character," he says, adding, "I want the audience to see me doing a variety of roles."
