New Delhi: Actor Nakuul Mehta, currently seen as Ram Kapoor in daily soap ‘Bade Achche Lagte Hain 2’, shared a gratification post as his character in the much-loved family drama comes to an end. The actor bid adieu to the popular drama as it is all set to take a 20 year leap.
Nakuul shared a series of pictures from the sets of ‘Bade Achche Lagte Hain 2’, in which he played the protagonist Ram Kapoor. He penned a long emotional note, expressing his gratification to his character as well as to his team members. Nakuul wrote, “Dear Ram Kapoor from Bandra, There are some roles you play and then there are roles which play themselves and you are just a vessel which has been entrusted with this responsibility and all you really do is show up with all your heart & being, every single day.”
He continued, “RK, you were that guy for me. For someone who had just experienced fatherhood right before he met you, I recall experiencing a tectonic shift in the person I was and that translated into the life I brought to you every single day. Never before have I felt lighter, calmer, as still & vulnerable yet agile and nimble as I have ‘being you’. You allowed me to love more freely, deeply & be okay with my imperfections. You let me breathe life into a beautiful bumbling fragile emotional mess of a human which was far from your gelled hair prototype television hero.”
Expressing his gratitude to producer Ektaa Kapoor, Nakuul shared how television is synonymous to him with the content czarina. The actor shared, “It’s safe to assume this could have only been conceived by some wonderful women. To me Indian Television is synonymous with @ektarkapoor! It took me a decade in the industry to earn my stripes and spend the most beautiful 18 months playing a character which could only have been birthed by her. Thank you for your trust & collaboration. This will remain a cherished memory.”
Extending his love to all his crew members for their labour in making Ram Kapoor successful, Nakuul wrote, “As I set out to film my last day on the Bade Set, none of this would have been what it is if it weren’t for.. The best Priya my Ram could ever have and a friend I’m so fortunate to collaborate with over two beautiful shows, DeePee!The most beautifully crazy ensemble I got a chance to learn from and play off each day, you guys are legends. The love on and off sets is palpable in the moments we have spent making this show. My amazing director & DOP, DC & GS who have been an absolute rock solid team. Rock solid production on most days, Shilps & Sam! To our beautiful & always caffeinated creative team helmed by Mukta, Nikita, Deepti, Saco & Shreya, I’m forever grateful.”
He finally concluded his post by writing, “Whilst I step away to go and find ‘myself’ again.. It almost feels like retiring my jersey whilst also knowing that ‘some of you’ will always be a part of ‘some of me’.
PS (Ek Second..)
Also sharing all my love for the cast & team which will continue to bring you more beautiful memories in weeks to come.”
Nakuul’s co-star Disha Parmar, who played the female lead opposite him as Priya Kapoor, reacted on his post and wrote, “Mr Kapoor!!!!! It has been a routine to work with you everyday & ill miss that!
All the best for future endeavours! You did Fab! Let’s work together.. again!! 🤣😜”
