The versatile actor Gulshan Devaiah says his real-life teaching experience has lent some personal touches to his portrayal of teacher Aditya Rai in the MX Player series Shiksha Mandal.
To promote his most recent television series, Shiksha Mandal, which also has Pavan Malhotra and Gauahar Khan in the key roles, Gulshan Devaiah spoke with the media.
Gulshan said about his role and series, “It’s a nine-episode series revolving around medical examination scam. I am playing the role of a person who runs coaching classes, and this series is based on real-life incidents which took place, but this season specifically targets the educational scam.”
Gulshan added about his role, inspired by his days as a teacher, “All the roles are difficult in the beginning until you figure your character out, and once that is done, it is a cakewalk. There is a personal connection to my role, as I used to teach back in the day. I used to teach design; it was my first job after passing out from NIFT. I taught students for solid 4-5 years. And I believe it is one job that comes with a lot of responsibility, being a teacher. So, I was able to give my character a personal touch. I liked the subject and my role and decided to be part of it.”
Gulshan Devaiah, Gauhar Khan, and Pavan Malhotra play the critical characters in Syed Ahmad Afzal’s crime drama web series Shiksha Mandal, which also features Rajendra Sethi, Iram Badar Khan, Shivani Singh, Jaihind Kumar, Ramakrishnan Dhakad, Kumara Saurabh, and Sandeep Goyat in supporting parts.
On September 15, 2022, MX Player will debut the series.
