Param Singh is ‘poles apart’ from ‘Ishk Par Zor Nahi’ character
Mumbai– Actor Param Singh, who plays the role of Ahaan in the show “Ishk Par Zor Nahi”, says his ideas and beliefs in life are different from those of his character’s.
Ahaan believes that a woman’s sole job is to take care of her family. He is not fond of outgoing and social women.
“My character and I are poles apart especially when it comes to values and our ideologies. However, I am trying my best to not let that affect my performance and play Ahaan with utmost conviction and authenticity,” he says.
The actor adds he is not letting his “personal bias” affect the way he plays the character in the show.
“I am trying to be in the moment and give it my all and not let personal bias or judgement come into play. I believe this is the best process for an actor — to don different characters, imbibe the character traits and play it with conviction,” he says.
“Ishk Par Zor Nahi” airs on Sony Entertainment Television.

Talking about her new role, Sonali says: “I’ve just started working with the Crime Patrol team. They are simply fabulous. A performer gets a high by working with such a spirited and perfectionist team. For me, the show is like a torchlight, which is trying to make us aware, and I would like to be that torchbearer for the team by making people ‘satark’ (alert) to be responsible for what we do, instead of falling into traps. Let us be wise and responsible.”
The show was earlier hosted by Annup Sonii.
“I have watched Annup’s work since then, and what he does always generates curiosity – whether it is a series or a TV show. So, Crime Patrol and Annup have a strong association for me, and the kind of trust and compassion that he has evoked in people’s heart, is something very special for me,” she says.

As far as taking up this season of Crime Patrol is concerned, it is like taking the baton forward from Annup, and I hope that I make him proud.
