For most ’90s kids, the very mention of Rohit Roy will always conjure up images of a very dapper Mr RishabhMalhotra. Swabhimaan had a super complex storyline for us kids to follow, but watching it had become an after-school ritual just because of Rohit Roy. Of course, two decades have passed and Rohit has since then impressed the audience with his movie outings, and has aged.
So when I start off for this interview, I expect to meet a jaded and botoxed version of my childhood crush. But when I finally meet Rohit Roy, at the lobby of a posh Versova club, dressed in a pair of jeans and a casual tee, he isn’t looking a day older than his Doordarshan days... but definitely more chiseled! And he is bubbling with energy. As we sit down and I compliment him on reversing age, he reveals that he turned 50 on April 5 this year! I must have looked visibly shocked because he quips: “That reaction there was my goal!” and adds: “Most people think I got in shape for a movie. But I just wanted to be the fittest 50-year-old around! I want to turn 50 in style!” he chuckles.
