Actor Asif Shaikh has played more than 400 characters so far in the TV show 'Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain'. By playing so many characters, the actor has registered his name in the Guinness Book of World Records. Asif has also worked in superhit films like 'Karan-Arjun', 'Haseena Maan Jayegi', 'Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar' and 'Bandhan'. However, the success he was looking for in his career was achieved by the TV show 'Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain'.

There was a time when Asif stopped getting work. Actually, Asif started his career as a lead hero. After doing a few films, he stopped getting lead actor roles.

If the actor is to be believed, he has been a part of many bad films in his career, but today he is a well-known face in the country. From veteran actor Dharmendra to Bobby Deol, Yami Gautam to Alia Bhatt, many people from the industry praise his work.

This week in 'Star Talks' Asif Shaikh shared many stories from his life with us. Read these stories in the words of Asif himself…

sunny And bobby Deol personal message In Do Are Praise
You wouldn't even imagine how many people in the industry watch 'Bhabiji…'. Alia Bhatt, Dharmendra, Bobby Deol, there are many such actors who, when we meet them, we get to hear praise for their work. Once Dharamji also met me through someone. I get personal messages from Sunny and Bobby Deol. They are fans of our show. When we receive praise from such big celebs, we feel very relieved.

filmmaker Aditya hold And Yami Gautam Too ,sister-in-law Yes, watching Are
Filmmaker Aditya Dhar likes my work. He wanted to cast me in his film 'Uri: The Surgical Strike', but my schedule was very tight at that time. He offered me another film for which I auditioned not once but thrice. Unfortunately, they did not find me fit for that role.

Aditya wrote me a message. It was written in it – 'Sorry sir, you are a misfit for this role. I and my wife (Yami Gautam) watch your show. We enjoy it a lot. We like your work very much. If we get a chance, we will definitely work in future.

Salman Mine As visible By the way real In No
Salman Khan is a very good person. They are not at all what people think they are. He is a very soft and emotional person. If they offer something, one can never refuse them. I had a schedule of 35 days for the film 'Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan'.

I refused to do this film with Salman, but he did not agree. He said, 'How will you do this film?' Just what then? I made it one day and night. Shot both TV shows and films together. To be honest, I respect Salman a lot.

Sometimes No thought Was of ,sister-in-law, Show land mark become will go
About 10 years ago, when writer Manoj Santoshi was writing the script of 'Bhabiji…', he was in touch with me. At that time I was not even a part of the show, yet he used to discuss every scene with me. After about a year, I joined the team of the show as an actor. By then, I had understood my character very well.

I enjoyed this process very much. I never thought that this show would become a landmark. No one had even imagined that our show would become trend setting.

Correct methods From tap do So TV In Enough the possibilities Are
These days, TV is going through a very bad phase. Audiences have many options for entertainment. There are many shows which are closing within a month or two of their launch. In such a situation, completion of 9 years of our show is really a matter of pride. I think there is a lot of potential in TV if we tap it in the right way.

The audience has become smart. People want to see something different, but the same saas-bahu saga still continues. We should try to give something new, but we are not able to do so.

Show In 400 From More character fulfill
It is a big thing for the 59 year old actor to get a chance to play more than 400 characters in any of his projects. In this show, I have played the character of a woman of all ages, which was challenging, interesting and worth watching. When I had given up hope in my career, I was offered this show. Today this show gave me name, fame and recognition. My name has been registered in the Guinness Book of World Records. I will always be grateful to the makers and the channel for this opportunity.

Asif also did some films as a lead actor in the initial phase of his career.

career In bad movies Too did
I have done a lot of cinema. Started his career as a lead actor. Did 6-7 films and then stopped getting work. I did not work for two years. I didn't know anything except acting. After waiting a lot, I started doing small roles in films. In any case, I wanted to survive in this industry. I also did very bad films.

The biggest thing is that I tried to learn from my bad deeds also. When the first TV show was offered, I immediately agreed. Today I proudly say that the recognition I got from TV was not given by any other platform. Whatever he did in his career, good or bad, he did it on his own. Didn't take anyone's recommendation.

My son is working with filmmaker Amar Kaushik. My son Alijah Iman is working as an assistant with 'Stree' fame director Amar Kaushik. He also went to London to study filmmaking. I remember when he came back, I told him about doing MBA, but he refused. He said that he wants to make a career in this industry.

At first he was scared of this decision, but then he thought – 'When my family members don't stop me, then how can I stop it?' I gave him permission. Today I get to learn a lot about global cinema from my son. Many times he tells me – 'Papa, you overact a lot.'
