Vineet Raina’s Split Personality!

Vineet Raina will play a character who suffers from split personality in his next show Maa. This will be the first time Vineet will play negative role. “The character has dual shades. You can call it split personality – I have to switch on and off from one role to the other. I had that chocolate boy kind of image from Maayka so I had to change completely for this role as he is out and out a black character,” says Vineet.And to pull of the role convincingly, Vineet had to work hard and change his look.“I was on a weight training programme for two months. I go to gym every day for an hour and do cardio exercises extensively. I have cut off my hair and now looking quite muscular as this character is that of an athlete. I am eating lots of salad and chicken and drinking protein shakes. I am also avoiding fatty food.

Then I have also done lots of homework about this character like how he will behave and what will be his mannerisms and everything. I am sure people will enjoy this character a lot. I am getting good responses for my promos also,” says the actor.

When asked about his departure from Maayka, Raina says he has no plans of returning to the show.

“I will not enter in Maayka right now. The channel has not approached me for bringing back my character. Veer and Soni’s couple was very popular and since I and Shilpa (Shinde) have left the show, it is not getting as high TRPs which they used to get in the past. The channel knows very well that this is a new show and I have to give my time to this show,” says Vineet.

Vineet and his lady love Tanushree were most recently seen on Nach Baliye 4.
