Colors recently launched Udaariyaan, a show that tells the unique story of three individuals who all want different things in life. While the sisters’ — Jasmine (Isha Malviya) and Tejo (Priyanka Choudhary) — lives are affected by the dream of going to Canada, Fateh’s (Ankit Gupta) life changes course because of his love for Jasmine.
Ankit Gupta, who plays Fateh, a boxer, says it was quite taxing physically to get into the role of a boxer. He says, “My character in the show is very different from any previous work I have done. While there are a lot of similarities between me and my character, the only major difference is boxing! Fateh’s character has helped me learn a new skill. Boxing is a very challenging sport and it requires a lot of physical as well as mental stamina. I started training for boxing everyday on the sets by watching YouTube videos. While the training was painful, I am happy with the results and I hope viewers will appreciate my efforts.”
