Exclusive: Rithvik Dhanjani talks about his 11-year journey in the industry

Rithvik says he feels blessed to be living his dream every single day of his life

Rithvik welcome to Editorji. You recently completed 11 years in the industry. How does it feel?
Thank you very much for having me first thing. How does it feel? It feels miraculous, it feels amazing, it feels like a dream, it feels like a blessing. I am very blessed to be able to live my dream every single day of my life. I am so, so thankful.


You have done fiction TV, reality TV, web shows and anchoring. What do you enjoy the most?
In all honesty, I love, love, love being an actor every single day of my life. That's what I love the most.


OTT has changed many things for the audience. How do you see it as a platform?
I think it is a huge space which is yet to be filled with so much more amazing content. I think it is a great opportunity for a lot of makers, actors, artists, you know, from all sectors to sort of come in and collaborate and make magic happen because a) it has got so much more freedom than any other platform, any other medium as of now.


You have recently worked on 'Arranged,' which was based on the modern outlook for arranged marriages. Tell us something about it. How much did you enjoy?
It was a lovely film. It was with Tridha Choudhury. She's opposite me and it is an urban take on the ancient arranged marriages and I think it is a beautiful take because even in times like today something like this can happen. where two individuals with their extremely individualistic approaches can come together and make a union happen. It is beautiful. Please watch it on Amazon mini-TV right now and its streaming. So ya, tell me what you think about it.

What is your opinion on arrange marriages? Marriages in general.

I'm not really an arranged marriage type of guy. I feel I want to know my partner. I want to be able to understand the person better before I actually commit to a marriage. It is life-long process for me and I don't believe that if things are broken you just let them go. I am not one of those guys. So ya, I do believe in arrange marriage set up but with the script that I have worked on currently, if something like that actually happens, I think it's beautiful. People can still find their right partners and matches in an arranged marriage set up if you want to.

Tell us something about your podcast
'Buri Nazar,' it is an Amazon audible podcast. It is one of the best podcasts of 2021 and 2022. I can't believe it was my first time working with Supriya Pathak. Actually, it was my second time. I worked on Cartel with her first. It was simultaneously basically. Both of them were happening simultaneously. You know the idea of being in a little studio and then you give just your voice to a story and let the world imagine what must be happening in that particular room, in that particular scene. I think 1) It is very difficult but it is so exciting. It is so liberating. It is because you can do anything you want to but within that confined space, I think you like it is a challenge but a wonderful one.


Rithvik, what's next for you? What's coming up? Any TV serial?
I am currently working on two projects. One of them is a thriller, another one is a fantasy and that's what you are going to see me on next and it's on two different platforms. I am hoping that you like that too.


You recently won an award for Cartel and your podcast. How does that feel?
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Bappa. Thank you everybody. How I feel? I feel great. I really feel great because I gave three and a half years of my life to Cartel and then the world loved what they saw and every time I get someone coming up to me and saying 'Ae Bhau, tum ko dekha humne, usme Cartel mein.' My heart goes thank you. So, I guess winning an award was just something. It's really not the award but more than the award it's a ton of things like my work is being appreciated. My work is being liked. That's the kind of gratification that I want to take home.
