Mishal started his career in 2005 with MTV show 'Pyar Vyar and All That'. He then starred in 'Love Story', which was produced by Bollywood's ace director Anurag Basu. When asked if he would like to work with Basu again, Mishal said, "I would do anything to work in Anurag Basu's film. After 'Barfi'... It is up there on top of my wish list."
The actor will next don the role of a cop in crime series 'Encounter' on Sony TV, which traces the lives of larger than life, fictional gangsters. "This is a very different way of storytelling. Usually we see that such stories are told from a gangsters' viewpoint. But in 'Encounter' the story is told from the point of view of a cop. It is about him, his family, his background. You get to do every ting- action, romance," he said. Having starred mostly in daily soaps, Mishal, who was last seen on the small screen in a cameo role in 'Punar Vivah', said it was a refreshing change for him to work in a show like 'Encounter'.
"Working in such series is very exciting because it is very pacy, unlike daily soaps which have 200-300 episodes. The shooting takes place just like a film. I shot for 15 days for the three-day series, so it was not at all time consuming," the actor said.
