Young actor Savi Thakur, who is currently seen as Prince Kanishk in Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s magnum opus Porus, is extremely delighted to be a part of such a big-scale show. The actor plays a negative character on the soap and finds it quite challenging. “I have learned a lot from Porus. I have learned to have more and more patience. I have learned to work for a long time on the set. I have learned so many things from my co-actors. Also, since I am doing a negative character for the first time, it’s quite challenging,” he says.

Thakur adds that he shares a great equation with the rest of the cast. “All the actors are really nice but there are four actors I love to spend my time with – Chandan Dilawar, Vishal Patni, Mohit Abrol and Zohaib Siddiqui. But the sad part is Chandan and Vishal are not there in the show now and I really miss them on the set. Chandan Dilawar is like a big brother to me.”

The actor shares that he always wanted to be an actor and is loving his profession. “I love being an actor. I get to play so many different roles. I started my acting career in 2015 with DD1. It was a good mythological show (Draupadi). Then I did a cameo in Jamai Raja for Zee TV then I worked in another show for Zee TV called Seth Ji’, he says.

Family means everything to Savi, who says that he comes from a fairly humble background. “My dad, Ramesh Chand, is an engineer. My mother is a housewife. She has been a great source of motivation in my life. Apart from them, I have two sisters – Sunaina and Devyani. They all are loving and supportive of me and my career,” he concludes.
