Aditya Deshmukh who played Faizi in Ziddi Dil Maane Na is very popular in India as well as abroad. His fan experiences are unique too.
He says, “There are so many memorable fan moments. My favourite moment was when I went to see the film “Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui” at Carnival Cinema and as soon as the interval happened, everyone started talking about me being present and everyone started cheering and clicking selfies with me. I used to be very active on social media, so people were well aware of who I am. This was the first time something like this happened in a movie hall although such a thing had happened to me in the past in malls.
People always called me by my different characters’ names in the past. When I was doing “Natya Pinky” they used to call me Vikas. When I was doing “Kavach” they used to call me Ashutosh. So no one ever spoke to me by my normal name. Faizi is popular now so they used to call me Faizi. Audiences treat you like a family member.
He further adds, “One day one family came to me to click the photos and they gave her child in my hands to hold him for a photo and I am standing in the middle of them. It was a very funny movement. I think that your fans are your assets. At the end of the, I just want to say the audience makes you, and they break you. I have learned to reciprocate fan’s love from Shahrukh Khan sir. He always keeps in mind that it is fans’ adulation that has made him such a superstar. If my smile brings a smile to my fan’s faces then surely I am doing something right in life. We wish Aditya that you get a good show soon as your fans are missing you seeing on-screen.
