For the uninitiated, Ankur Rathee was first spotted as a hot stud in the first season of Four More Shots Please! engaged in a rip-roaring fling with one of the lead characters, Anjana Menon, essayed by Kirti Kulhari. The actor instantaneously garnered a fan following with women drooling over him. Soon after the series, Rathee surprised audiences with roles in serious mainstream Bollywood films like The Tashkent Files, a 2019 sleeper hit, to more recently Taapsee Pannu starrer, Thappad.
Ankur is now enjoying the amazing response to the second season of Four More Shots Please! where he continues his role as Arjun, Kirti Kulhari’s love interest, but now he’s not just a “fun time in Goa”, but graduates to being a serious boyfriend. Last season the couple’s physical chemistry turned up the heat, but this time the emotional chemistry between the actors is equally overwhelming and their performance even leaves viewers in tears.
The series, dubbed as a desi Sex and the City, tracks the lives of four women from very different backgrounds, finding friendship in the Maximum city. Ankur’s role is completely intertwined with Kirti Kulhari’s plot line.
Commenting on his role in the series, Ankur says, “Whereas before the series focused on exploring our physical attraction and infatuation, this season throws my relationship with Anjana smack down in the middle of real-life challenges, like our age difference for example. You’ve already seen my character, Arjun, as a fling, but now you’ll experience him as a boyfriend.”
On working with Kirti Kulhari, he added, “When you have a co-actor like Kirti, suddenly there becomes a lot more in the scene to play with as an actor. She gives a lot and if you’re prepared and present you can’t help but give back. The spontaneity of it all is magical.”
