Inform me how are you feeling about Babli Bouncer?
For the very first time, I am feeling excited. Like legit excited. Individuals have requested me many instances how I am feeling once I go to some premiere or wherever. However that is the primary time the place I am legit enthusiastic about it. I am actually trying ahead to the film.
In the course of the lockdown, we watched a lot stuff as a result of we had been caught at house. After the lockdown, the viewers’s palates have modified. Perhaps that is why individuals are discovering the trailer of Babli Bouncer so refreshing . . .
Right, right. I might say that is the USP of the movie- it is vitally refreshing. Individuals have not watched a girl bouncer and it is all about that. The journey of how she turns into a bouncer and the whole lot. And for me, I am getting a job which I’ve not performed thus far. Earlier, I performed a brat, health champion, any person smug who’s bullying folks. For the very first time, I’ve performed somebody very subtle, well-mannered, calm and composed and I’ve a romantic angle additionally. In my complete profession, I’ve all the time been falling for a lady and that is the primary time that the lady is falling for me. That is very refreshing and I am actually excited kyunki when you’ve seen the trailer, bike ke peeche mein baitha hua hu. That is all new to me, the sensation, the awkwardness . . . that has made me enthusiastic about this undertaking as properly.
You are additionally taking part in in opposition to kind within the film. Earlier, in SOTY 2 and Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, you performed this beefy, hunky dude…
After Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, I used to be getting so many roles alongside the identical strains. You will not consider me however there have been round 4 or 5 big-budget movies I used to be supplied and I needed to say no. And with each movie that I rejected, I used to be questioning if I used to be doing the correct factor. As a result of we do not get so many alternatives to work with such massive administrators and such manufacturing homes . . . the roles had been additionally very thrilling but it surely was on the identical strains. I used to be being brave with each movie I used to be saying no to. I wished to do one thing very totally different from the roles that I’ve performed thus far in order that I can present my vary of performing and folks can see me as an actor and never simply as a health athlete. I need to break the picture as a result of I believe if I do not do it proper now, in a while, it turns into troublesome.
It is really easy to get typecast on this business. When the casting director known as you and supplied this position, what did you assume?
Someplace I really feel, I had that character in me. However you want a visionary to visualise all that. Individuals wish to play protected and I actually did not need to get caught as one character. I wished to discover, and hats off to the casting director and Madhur (Bhandarkar) Sir – they noticed me as Viraj. Viraj is sort of a dream boy . . . like Prince Charming. I am actually completely satisfied they noticed me like that as a result of not everybody can see that.
Inform me about working with Madhur Bhandarkar and Tamannaah.
Once I bought to know that that is the script and that Madhur Sir is directing it, I used to be like I need to do that as a result of that is totally different from another position which I’ve performed. Once I bought the decision from Madhur Sir ki he desires to satisfy me within the workplace, I thought ki he shall be a really critical particular person as a result of he has directed movies on such critical matters. However once I met him, I realised that he is a very totally different particular person – fun-loving, actually jovial and I might say he’s a person who takes everyone collectively. He is the person. Not a single time did anybody from the spot dada to the course staff really feel not noted. He offers you the area to carry out and he makes the atmosphere so snug on set that you do not really feel such as you’re working. I all the time felt like I am having fun with the whole lot. That is the very best a part of the director, I might say.
She is a unbelievable co-actor as a result of not everybody embraces the strategies you give and she or he has all the time embraced every time I mentioned ki this must be executed within the scene and every time she has steered one thing, I’ve all the time embraced it. That is the best factor you need in a co-actor. Sooner or later I bought up early within the morning to work out within the gymnasium, like at 5 am and I noticed her figuring out. You’re feeling good while you see the opposite particular person can be as devoted as you might be. That is how within the movie, the whole lot goes collectively. So, I am trying ahead to the film.
