“I would say that I gave my best performance so I was part of the good actors”
As ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ is being appreciated, How do you feel?
I am feeling like really good, because my role is being appreciated. Apart from the critics I’m reading all the articles and they’re like 95% are really positive, also general public is giving lot of compliments. Everyone from family to friends told me that, on your every scene people laughing in theaters and then whenever you come in the scene people hope it will be funny. So that’s really good thing and I’m happy that Amul Sir, Anshul Sir and Ajay Sir gave me this opportunity.
Your acting in the film is what people are talking about, how was your experience? And do you feel you overshadowed other actors with your skills?
Actually talking about the experience on the set it was very nice and I was very happy because, the first time I visited Lucknow and after the shooting I used to go and roam around and eat Lucknow’s food and all together it was a great experience as the environment was friendly. The producers were friendly and warm towards me. Raj and I have worked earlier in ‘LSD’ so it was like a reunion. Working with Gulshan Sir was fun. And talking about the over shadow thing, I think I wouldn’t say I overshadowed. People are telling me that I could compliment some of the really good actors like Raj, Gulshanji, Darshanji. So everyone said that, I was part of it. So, I would like to say that I gave my best performance so I was part of the good actors.
You have been part of films like ‘LSD’ , ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, ‘MS Dhoni’. How have you grown as an actor?
I think as an actor I would say that I’ve done so many films and I have been lucky enough to do two biopics and both are like 100 CR business. So as an actor my confidence level has grown a lot and now the conscious part which actor feels in front of camera has reduced. I can handle the pressure of camera and lights, so definitely I think I have grown as an actor.
You have been part of various film genres and also biopics, so what do you enjoy doing more?
I don’t have any favorites, but obviously comedy is always there for me and even people tell me that comedy is an easy thing for you. I like humor, but I even like few emotional things like – When in a scene in ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ I cry and that’s scene is really good, that’s something I like.
What do you take back from the film?
I think I take back one of my really favorite character Bhura. I take back really good team of producers, director and lot of good memories. I hope I can do something like really bigger role. I take back all the positive things.
Right now I’m doing a film called ‘Vodka Diaries’, it’s a murder mystery thriller and it’s the first time I’m doing this kind of film. I feel good doing different genres like romantic or comedy in ‘Behen Hogi Teri ‘.
