Feel Good Friday with Namit Das

Namit Das is one of those versatile actors who has graced almost every medium – be it theatre, films, television or digital. While he has done more positive roles, the actor has proved he can take on any shade with his negative turn in OTT shows such as Abhay and Aarya. In Mira Nair’s BBC mini-series A Suitable Boy, he charmed the girl as well as the audience as Haresh. With a number of exciting projects in the pipeline, Namit lets us in on his weekend plans.

What advice do you have for any kid who looks up to you?

Remember to find humour in everything you do. The idea is not to take this mundane humdrum too seriously. Feel light, feel like a feather and fly around…
