Inform me how are you feeling about Babli Bouncer?
For the very first time, I am feeling excited. Like legit excited. Folks 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 wanting ahead to the film.
In the course of the lockdown, we watched a lot stuff as a result of we have been caught at dwelling. After the lockdown, the viewers’s palates have modified. Perhaps for this reason persons are discovering the trailer of Babli Bouncer so refreshing . . .
Appropriate, appropriate. I’d say that is the USP of the movie- it is extremely refreshing. Folks have not watched a woman bouncer and it is all about that. The journey of how she turns into a bouncer and all the things. And for me, I am getting a job which I’ve not performed to date. Earlier, I performed a brat, health champion, someone boastful 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 entire profession, I’ve all the time been falling for a woman and that is the primary time that the lady is falling for me. That is very refreshing and I am actually excited kyunki if you happen to’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 mission as nicely.
You are additionally enjoying in opposition to sort 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 imagine me however there have been round 4 or 5 big-budget movies I used to be provided 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 proper factor. As a result of we do not get so many alternatives to work with such massive administrators and such manufacturing homes . . . the roles have been additionally very thrilling however it 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 to date in order that I can present my vary of appearing and other people 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 provided this position, what did you suppose?
Someplace I really feel, I had that character in me. However you want a visionary to visualise all that. Folks prefer to play secure 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 obtained 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 some other position which I’ve performed. Once I obtained the decision from Madhur Sir ki he needs to satisfy me within the workplace, I thought ki he can be a really critical particular person as a result of he has directed movies on such critical subjects. However once I met him, I realised that he is a very totally different particular person – fun-loving, actually jovial and I’d 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 workforce really feel unnoticed. He offers you the area to carry out and he makes the setting so comfy on set that you do not really feel such as you’re working. I all the time felt like I am having fun with all the things. That is the most effective a part of the director, I’d say.
She is a unbelievable co-actor as a result of not everybody embraces the recommendations you give and he or she has all the time embraced at any time when I mentioned ki this needs to be executed within the scene and at any time when she has urged one thing, I’ve all the time embraced it. That is the perfect factor you need in a co-actor. Someday I obtained up early within the morning to work out within the fitness center, like at 5 am and I noticed her figuring out. You are feeling good whenever you see the opposite particular person can also be as devoted as you’re. That is how within the movie, all the things goes collectively. So, I am wanting ahead to the film.
