"Rishton Ka Saudagar: Baazigar" has all the elements we see in TV shows but at the same time it is a larger than life drama. I play Aarav Trivedi, who belongs to a rich influential family based out of Lucknow, and is a perfectionist. His powerful and complex persona works like charm In an amazing sequence in the show when his servant inadvertently drops one cup, Aarav breaks the entire set sating that the set was of 6 pieces and it is incomplete now, so I can't keep it. This explains his personality.
