While we have all always assumed that shooting for a soap is much easier than shooting for a film, it isn’t that true. There are a lot of limitations that arise when it comes to shooting for serials. Especially for the actors, shooting for soaps can be very tedious. They end up having to spend almost 15 hours on the set daily. Take Gautam Rode for example. The actor was recently seen on the sets of his show ‘Suryapitra Karn’. The actor who has always been a perfectionist commented on how it was necessary to utilize time and space to the best while shooting for a soap.
The actor who is currently shooting in Gujarat does almost all his work inside his van in an attempt to beat the heat. He does his rehearsals, script, and makeup in the van, only going out when needed. He uses his van almost like his happy place. He even manages to get a power nap in between shots, which is the only reason he manages to get through the day. It truly is a hectic career for soap actors. But somehow, they all seem to manage at the end of the day.
