Back with Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai, Piyush Sahdev talks about how he stayed sane throughout the prison ordeal
Piyush Sahdev’s cunning villainous act in Beyhadh left the audience mighty impressed. The actor who made an impressive comeback after a long injury lay-off, did not get to enjoy his success when he was chargesheeted by the cops for alleged cheating and sexual misconduct with a 23-year-old model with whom he was living-in. The actor had to spend a few days in Mumbai’s Arthur Road jail and was finally granted bail in December. It was quite a turbulent time for him. However, he seems to be back on the road to work. The actor is seen in the much-acclaimed web-series Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai as Mona Singh’s college buddy. He is also in talks for a few new projects.
The past few months have been very difficult for you. What kept you steady and going?
Yes, the past few months were not a good period of my life, but you have to stay strong in tough times. My family and friends supported me and that’s what kept me going.PIYUSH

Were you worried about how the industry will receive you once you come out? How have people reacted?
Yes, of course, I was worried what people will think about me and so on… but by God’s grace I realised that there was actually nothing to be worried about. All my colleagues and the people whom I have worked with in the past, were very warm and supportive of me. The way they showed their trust brought me back to work again.

Your Beyhadh co-star Kushal Tandon was one of the first to speak up for you. Did you have a chat with him once you were out?
I would love to thank Kushal and everyone else who has supported me. And yes I spoke to Kushal after coming home and thanked him for his lovely gesture. When we work together, we become like family and start to know each other so well.

Tell us a bit about your role in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai. How did you bag the project?
I’m playing Mona Singh’s friend who was together with her in college. In the series, we meet after many years. On seeing me with her, the lead male protagonist which is played by Ronit Roy, thinks there’s a love angle between us. For this project, Rose Movies approached me but I couldn’t shoot for it much as I got caught up in the legal issue. But I would really like to thank the producer of the series Shrishti Aarya who considered me, because I really enjoyed doing it.

With Beyhadh, you established yourself as a solid performer. What kind of roles are you looking forward to?
I have always chosen characters which are performance oriented and I really got to do much in Beyhadh. I wish shows like Beyhadh keep coming to me.

How did you stay sane in prison? How did you maintain your mental and emotional equilibrium behind bars?
A moment of patience in a moment of anger saves you a hundred moment of regrets, and that’s what I have followed. After being in prison, people turn bitter, but I chose to be positive. I was patient and calm… I used to chant, meditate and read good books as much as I can and that’s what helped me.

Who has been your greatest emotional support?
My mother! She is no more but she’s always there with me to guide and support me. My brother, Gireesh Sahdev, sister Meher Vij and father supported me a lot. What else does a person need when he has his family standing on his side!
