Vikram Singh Chauhan, who made his TV debut in 2013 with Qubool Hai, followed it up with Million Dollar Girl, Ek Hasina Thi, Jaana Na Dil Se Door, Ek Deewaana Tha and Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka!
Vikram Singh Chauhan started his career with TV and then switched to film and now OTT. He talks about his journey and the medium he prefers, “I always look forward to being a part of a good story and playing a character who somehow drives the story, whether it’s on any medium.”

“TV requires a lot of hard work and long-term commitment. Shooting 12 hours all year round takes a toll, but the good thing is that it really prepares you well with practical experience of learning monologues on a daily basis, camera technology and achieving at set. “TV has been like a mother to me, made me believe in myself, meet my fears and given me confidence with each new project,” he says.
The actor made his debut in Bollywood by playing the role of police officer in Rani Mukherjee in the lead role of Mardaani 2. Chauhan was also part of web projects Chattis aur Maina and the latest Rudra: The Edge of Darkness.
“Film and web, we get more time filming schedules as there are no daily deadlines. So as actors, we get more time to work with character and script, he adds.
So, does he think web space is more accepting of actors than Bollywood? “I think the times we are in now are the best phase for an actor with so many opportunities because of OTT. It can take time but good things come up if you have worked with the craft. Now the challenge is not to get it either. “The first break without enduring in the long run. The audience is now looking for good content and performance,” he concludes.
