" 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.”"
