The popular TV face, Samir Soni, who was last seen in a Bollywood multi-starrer, Student of the Year 2 is back with a bang with a digital debut on Ekta Kapoor’s OTT platform, Alt Balaji. The actor will be seen essaying the role of ‘Sumer Singh Balaji’ in Alt Balaji’s Bewafaa Sii Wafaa(https://www.altbalaji.com/show/bewafaa-sii-wafaa/132), opposite two leading ladies, Dipannita Sharma and Aditi Vasudev.
Alt Balaji’s Bewafaa Sii Wafaa web series is a story of two people who find love after being married to their respective life partners. Can that really happen? Alt Balaji took to Instagram to post about their show, Bewafaa Sii Wafaa, ‘They are lovers. And they are married. But, to different people. What if you meet your soulmate after you met your life partner? #Bewafaa Sii Wafaa is a tale of passion, longing, heartbreak, and revenge.’
The actor, Samir Soni, plays a pivotal role in the series, Bewafaa Sii Wafaa. Although he charms the viewers with his brilliant acting skills, Samir opens up about his struggle in the entertainment industry. He was quoted saying, “People saw me as a good-looking guy but never as the hero. My looks went against me, even when I was considered for negative roles. I wasn’t the dancing star, the action star or the romantic hero, so things didn’t work out. But now, characters take precedence in films and OTT platforms, so today, it is about how good an actor you are.”
Bewafaa Sii Wafaa’s lead actor, Samir Soni, started his Bollywood career with a film, China Gate in 1988. Talking about his Bollywood career, he adds, “I could have done better, but I am glad, even after 20 odd years in the industry, I am still relevant and getting some good work. I did a lot of good films, including Baghban (2003) and Fashion (2008), but I didn’t get the right opportunities back then. Perhaps, I didn’t fit into any slot back in the day, which is why my film career didn’t work out as expected.”
Samir’s past struggles have only shaped him into a brilliant actor that he has become today. Working under the Balaji banner has worked in his favour. He rose to fame after his role in Ekta Kapoor’s daily soap drama, Parichay in 2013. Balaji’s Parichay earned him awards, such as Indian Telly Award For Best Actor and ITA Award For Best Actor- Drama (Popular) in the same year.
After a stellar performance for Balaji, Samir Soni is set to win plenty of hearts with his digital debut in Bewafaa Sii Wafaa for yet another Balaji project.
