The actor so far has had to switch from being a geek in season one to a young man who lost his virginity in season two and now plays the role of a serial play boy in the forthcoming season 6.

He said, ‘The character that i play Tobi, you can see that he has been 3 different people in 3 different seasons, considering that in my real life, I’m none of them, has been quite challenging’.
