‘ACP Pradyuman’ Shivaji Satam Says He’s Not Getting Work & Fans Say ‘Kuch Toh Gadbad Hai’

There are a handful of characters that go on to imprint themselves in your head and heart, especially as far as Indian TV shows are concerned. 

Yes, with OTT platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime, the Indian audience has been introduced to a lot of quality content, but back in the day, when we were all hooked to television, only a select few serials managed to make a lasting impression. And one of them was CID.

We are talking about a time when the likes of Sherlock Holmes was preceded by ACP Pradyuman aka Shivaji Satam, who was as famous back in the day as his line, “Daya, kuch toh gadbad hai”.

CID was one of the longest-running and most popular TV shows with actor Shivaji Satam forever branding himself as ACP Pradyuman to every 90s kid. And while he was all the rage back then, solving crimes with his team that included characters like Daya, Abhijeet, Purvi and more, is worried about having the sun set on his career now.

During a recent interview with HT, CID fame Shivaji Satam opened up about not having enough work now. He said, “It’s my bad luck that no powerful characters are being written. It’s a loss on both sides. As an actor, I miss out on good work and the audience misses out on good actors.”

Tired of having been offered cop roles over and over again after his stunt as ACP Pradyuman, Shivaji Satam talks about how even though he wouldn’t be up for having himself stereotyped into just one role, he wouldn’t mind playing the same role in CID again.

He shared, “Tomorrow (if) CID starts again, I’ll be right in the front to do the project. I’m not tired of playing the character, but tired of being home.”  

And honestly, we don’t think that there would be anyone better suited for the role than him either.  

Soooo happy .
