Talking about his journey, Shakti shared, “I completed twenty years in the television industry and I think it has been a roller coaster ride. I am so glad and happy to be a part of this wonderful and magnificent fraternity which has blessed me with fame, recognition, love, support, and a platform to showcase my talent. I still remember it took a lot of effort to play my first character as I had to understand and get into the skin of the character, but I truly enjoyed the role.”
He further added, “I believe this journey includes a lot of people to thank who have been there with me throughout. To start with, I want to thank the most beautiful people in my life – my parents and my wife, who have been there with me through thick and thin. They have given me unconditional love and support and without them, this journey wouldn’t have been possible. I have a special connection with Ekta Kapoor because she gave me my biggest break and made me a household name. Therefore, I am and will always be truly grateful to her for always believing in me. I am extremely grateful for all the shows that I have done to date, and Kundali Bhagya is one of the most special ones. TV has given me an opportunity to explore my boundaries as an artist. It’s been an amazing journey so far and I hope the audience keeps showering me with their love.”
