Gautam Rode is a former model and actor.


Gautam Rode and Pankhuri Awasthy’s new Gujarati song “Chhano Maano” was unveiled recently, and the duo was elated to collaborate again. “It’s our second job together after marriage. Being husband and wife, and being friends too, the comfort level is to another level. It doesn't feel like we are shooting together, and whether the camera is on or not - doesn’t matter to us. But the good thing that happened with us was, that everything had a script to it. It’s not how you see it in videos - you have a good-looking location, nice clothes, there are montages, and the song is done. In both the songs that we did, they had a good storyline to it, which we as actors were really happy about,” states Gautam.

Pankhuri adds, “Working together is always a plus. We only worked together once before the marriage, and after that, for 2 or 3 years we didn’t work together. So when we collaborated on the first song, and then this one coming along - like Gautam rightly said, that as actors we are both very alike in the way, as in we both look for stories. That excites both of us more.” One of the characters that Pankhuri plays in the video is a photographer, and Gautam informs that his actress-wife loves clicking pictures. 

“In fact, I have even told Gautam that I really want to buy a camera. Not like a professional photographer, but I love to do that. My phone is full with eighty thousand pictures right now, and there is borderline self-obsession also there,” laughs Pankhuri.

The duo states that they would love to work together in a Gujarati film as well. “Language doesn’t really matter, but we need time to prepare for it. It’s always good to learn and connect with new audiences. We would love to do a Gujarati film,” says Gautam. Pankhuri adds, “As long as the content and storyline interests us, there is no other barrier.”

Meanwhile, Gautam and Pankhuri are already in talks for another project that will feature them together. “There is something in the pipeline, but it's too early to comment. Mostly it will be a short film, and we are trying to work things out with the production. If things go well, then, we will be doing that together,” shares Gautam. 

Television actors Gautam Rode and Pankhuri, who are husband and wife also, will be seen in a romantic music number. The shooting has also started for the song in Udaipur. The song is a beautiful portrayal of eternal love. This will be their first outing in a different language and it will be exciting to see how they portray their characters. The song is sung by Osman Mir, who lent his voice to the popular song, Nagada Sang Dhol from the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Ram Leela. 

Sharing the picture on the Instagram handle, Pinkvilla wrote, “@rodegautam and @pankhuri313 are shooting for a new song in Udaipur and we can't calm.” In the picture, Gautam is wearing a white color sherwani with a red turban. Pankhuri is wearing a white shirt with pants and a black belt. The actress was last seen in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. She essayed the grey character role in the show. The song is going to set the mood for the upcoming vibrant festival of Navratri as it is a traditional song. 

Mallika Sherawat, Esha Gupta, and Gautam Rode's Starrer  Nakaab were released yesterday. The show reportedly revolves around the mystery surrounding the death of a TV star. In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, when we asked Gautam if the show is inspired by a real-life incident, here’s what he had to say. “They already wrote the story two-and-half years ago, and back then nothing of this sort of an incident had happened. I had a question too when I was going through (the script), but they told me about the story timing and everything,” states Gautam. 

He informs that the show was offered to him last year, after which he met the makers for a narration. “I liked the story, but I really loved the character. I have never played a cop, and this character is very layered. It's not like what we see in films, OTT, or TV where if he is a good guy he remains the same throughout, or if he is bad then he is bad all through. You keep seeing different shades of him constantly, and keep wondering if he is right or wrong,” says Gautam, further talking about working with Mallika and Esha.

“Both the girls are very down-to-earth, nice, humble, and friendly. I don’t know if people know this, but they both are very religious. For instance, Esha used to go to a temple every day while we were shooting in Kolkata, and I remember one day when I was en route to the shoot, I saw Mallika distributing sweets to the hotel staff. When I asked her about it, she said she had gone to a temple and she was giving sweets to everyone. That was a different side to them which I really liked,” shares Gautam, who hasn’t been very active on TV for a while.

“Yes, it is a conscious decision. If you need to move towards a field then you need to take a break, take it easy and then move forward in another direction. So that’s what I did,” he signs off.

Speaking about her well deserved holiday at the moment, and why the duo decided to go to Pushkar, the actress quips, “Gautam and I had initially planned to go for an international trip, but looking at the current health scenario there, we chose to visit a destination in India itself. Pushkar is a lovely place and quite a favorite for both of us, so we decided to take off to the beautiful city for our much-needed time off together."

Actor Gautam Rode who has worked in films and television is now all set to make his theatre debut. Gautam who is experimenting with the medium for the first time will be seen as a Kathak dancer in a play titled Aarohi. Speaking about theatre as a medium Gautam says, "It's by far the most challenging project I have taken up so far.  I had always heard that theatre is for 'serious' actors but after actually having rehearsed day in and day out, I realize how challenging it is.  And after so much hard work that an entire team puts in, looking at the earnings I feel that theatre truly isn't getting its due."

"There needs to be more support financially that needs to come into this medium.  It's a heavily underpaid medium and I see the struggle which everyone from the makers to the actors is facing to deliver quality in the limited budgets they have.  There really is no money for them to be able to go beyond and better as well as actually take a good amount home for all the hard work they are putting into the craft."

He added, "Most are doing theatre for the love and passion for the craft but I still feel if the medium were to be backed up financially more, we would truly have a rich experience for the audience along with a booming industry which is churning out great numbers in profits too."
