We had recently conducted a poll where we had asked you to vote for the Best Actor in a Web Series as a part of our #BLBestOf6 event, which we conduct during the first half of the year. For the first six months,we had narrowed down the nominees for male actors in a web series to Manoj Bajpayee in Bhonsle, Arshad Warsi in Asur, Jaideep Ahlawat in Paatal Lok, Ronit Roy in Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain 3, Vir Das in Hasmukh and Zain Imam in Never Kiss Your Best Friend 2, and it was Jaideep who won the race with 41% of the votes.
Speaking about his victory, Jaideep Ahlawat exclusively told us,”Thank you so much (to the BollywoodLife team), firstly for conducting this and putting so much effort in it. I don’t know really what to say, but I’d still like to take this opportunity to thanks everyone of you and everyone who has watched Paatal Lok and gave it so as well as Hathiram Chaudhary (his character of a cop); I’d just like say that it’s an honour to be in the kind of company of actors like Manoj sir (Manoj Bajpayee). If I still get so much love (after being nominated along with Manoj and the other actors) and they (our readers) consider me the winner of…you know…this (our poll).”
Elaborating on the kind of responsibility this creates for him as an artiste, Jaideep added, “I’m really thankful and humbled and honoured and it gives me a kind of…you know…sense of responsibility to do better and make people happier and more entertained by my work. Thank you, once again, thank you for everything, and thank you so much for giving Paatal Lok and Hathiram so much of love. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”
Congratulations, Jaideep Ahlawat. You truly deserve the winner’s mantle for your stellar act in Paatal Lok.
