Mumbai: Actor Kunal Jaisingh, who is seen essaying role of an artist in TV show “Ishqbaaaz”, hopes to master the art of painting. He wants to paint a picture of his father and gift it to him.
Kunal, known as Omkara Singh Oberoi of the Star Plus show, is already working on his artistic skills.
“I’ve shot for various scenes that show me working in solitude on my idols. Going by the scenes, I actually wish to pursue painting along with my other hobbies. We anyway have an artist-cum-sculptor on the set who helps me with the scenes.
“In between shots or after lunch, I go up to him (to learn) and I am gearing up to start painting a picture of my father and gift it to him,” Kunal said in a statement.
The actor also said his father Sunil Jaisingh is his biggest fan and critic.
“Every night I go back home after pack up, our dinner table conversations are only about the show. After my entry was shot in the first episode, I remember him telling me how he would love to have a painting done by me hanging on the wall at home. That was when I knew I have to get down to business and paint a picture of him, just for him.”
“Ishqbaaaz” tells the story of three brothers – Shivaaay (Nakuul Mehta), Omkara (Kunal) and Rudra (Leenesh Mattoo).
