Barun Sobti is one of the most loved celebrities on Indian Television. The actor is back with his next stint titled Asur which features on Voot. Barun has always been pretty away from the media glare and is not on any social media platform. He makes sure to spend quality time with his family and friends and is busy embracing the new challenges as a father. In an exclusive chat, the actor opened up on Asur, the challenge which he faced while portraying the role, not missing stardom and being a father. 

About Asur, Barun said, “As an actor, some scripts give you a jolt and you are scared to do it, Asur was not that. This was a script that ticked off all things on my list. It committed too much to the show, in fact. Everybody was so committed that no one was smiling during the shoot. After the shoot was done, I know I have done well.” He added that the character was pretty demanding and that he realized he had committed a lot to the show. 

When asked where does he look for criticism, Barun added, “I don’t get too much criticism. I am not saying that I have a superiority complex or anything but I know very well what I am doing. So when I go wrong, I know it too every time. The only person I believe whose opinion I respect is my wife. She is just a little kinder when she criticizes.”

About not chasing stardom, the handsome actor replied, “Stardom is a fictional thing. It is something that you imagine in your head. The entire concept is flawed. Stars are heavenly bodies. We are just human bodies who are working. We just get lucky. Everything depends on time and effort.”

He also opened up on embracing fatherhood and said that there is no fuller feeling than that.

He is just a lazy actor who is talented but doesn't want to work hard.

Buddy not choosing to have an entourage or not trying to suck up to bigwigs doesn't make him lazy...he's just content with what he has

Thankfully he's not an actor who is working hard on projects that he himself doesn't believe in !

He is so down to earth... Love this guy

I like him but there is other talented actors out their also like gurmeet barun best work was with sanaya

Barun is best. Eagerly looking forward to his next web series.

I love you so much arnav and i miss you pls come back

And who is your wife?If you,really,respect her,tell her real name bravely and honestly!

He is totally overhyped and lazy! Even after 9 years he is still known for Ipkknd . Not a single successful project after ipkknd.I watched Asur for Arshad Warsi but Barun was still acting like a Tv actor. His acting wasn't convincing as a forensic expert! He has so much to learn! Your wife will not save you in industry and I am sure you need audience to survive in the industry!so better respect what your fans says about your work rather than living in arrogance!
