He mentions that he is enjoying shooting for the show though it is a new working environment, but it is always a pleasure to work with a new team as it helps an individual to develop better acting skills. Rao aspires to do various other platform works like films, web series in regional languages and foreign languages other than the television shows. This will be a great exposure for the actor, and he wishes to also work in Hindi and Tamil films. The actor even wants to work in Telugu films as he has love for both Bollywood and Tollywood.
Sai Ketan Rao is a fitness freak and an early riser. In spite of having a tight shooting schedule of nearly 12 – 13 hours he does remove time for his fitness regime. When we asked Rao about his love for acting, he recollected as he had worked for an Australian Company after completing his education, but he had passion for acting since childhood. This helped him to bag the role in the serial ‘Agni Sakshi’ as his debut.
He started his acting career after the completion of theatre arts and worked on short films and feature films. Rao also has a film production company by the name of Aurum Motion Pictures. We wish the most versatile actor all the luck for his upcoming untitled show.
