‘I’d be willing to pay higher taxes for better infrastructure’
Aside from wanting a better Mumbai, Dheeraj Dhoopar, who plays the lead on Sasural Simar Ka, believes that saving is not enough. You need to invest regularly to stay ahead.
Dimpled actor Dheeraj Dhoopar, 29, plays Prem, the lead role, in the popular daily TV soap Sasural Simar Ka. He shares with us his money-saving tips and tricks.
What are your money-saving tricks?
The best tip for saving money is to invest it. A penny saved is a penny earned. I have a dedicated manager who takes care of my finances and savings. With inflation so high, you can’t simply save and sit back.
What was the last great deal you got?
I invested in gold when prices fell. It has gone up tremendously since and I think I got a very good deal.
Is there a product or service you don’t mind paying a premium for?
I wouldn’t mind paying extra taxes for good, clean and well-maintained roads. A world-class city like Mumbai most definitely deserves good infrastructure including better roads.
