Savor with Sonu

Moderator: Sonu M.

Born to a Punjabi middle class family on June 14 and raised in Delhi, acting seems to be the main thing on his mind ever since he can remember. Suri has digged his claws in every nitch of the industry whether it be commercials, small cameos in movies, music videos or indian serials. He arrived in Mumabi 10 years ago with a dream to make it to the indian film industry. Struggling with food and shelter which most strugglers in an air-tight city such as Mumabi have to face, he was able to tackle all these problems and is proudly standing where he is today. He has managed to make a name in such a competitive industry and that is no less than an accomplishment.

Suri has worked in indian serials such as Maan Rahe Tera Pitaah, Apno Ke Liye Geeta Ka Dharmyudh, Phulwa, Savitri, and movies such as Yamla Pagla Deewana with small cameos here and there. Being a man with kind nature, he has managed to play roles completely opposite of his personality, which shows a sign of a great actor. His current venture he is working on is Sadda Haq in which he is portraying one of the main antagonists: Professor Vardhaan who is a mad genius but a very mysterious personality at that. Being an antagonist, he has these grey shades which at times are hard to decipher as good or bad however he is always on the look out to help his students as much as possible and to fulfill one of his life's biggest dreams: coming on number 1 position in the nation with his DREAM team. 

An excerpt from one of Suri's interviews:

" Krip wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He belongs to a middle class family hailing from Delhi. He had arrived in Mumbai with just Rs 1500 in his pocket with dreams to make it big as an actor.

Recollecting his days of struggle in Mumbai he narrates, “I arrived in Mumbai ten years ago on 17 January, 2003 and was living in a room with eight people. I was unable to pay rent and was out on the streets for three days. On seeing me sleeping on the streets a generous soul offered me accommodation till I could afford to find a roof over my head and pay rent for the same. I was also without any morsel of food for six days.” The actor now has bought himself a house in the same Mumbai city where he once couldn’t afford to pay rent.

Krip didn’t even have money to enroll himself into an acting school. So how did he learn acting? “I am a film buff and have a great collection of movies. I keenly observed actors acting on screen and how dancers danced. That is how I picked up both acting and dancing.”

Krip finds it more challenging to play villains rather than heroes. He explains, “A negative character has many shades to portray and as an actor you learn a lot by executing these roles. Television villains are also very memorable- take for instance Viraj (Karanvir Bohra) in Dil Se Di Dua Saubhagyavati Bhava.”

Krip thanks God Almighty for his professional success. “Without His grace I would have gone nowhere in life.”"
