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 wanting ahead to the film.
Throughout the lockdown, we watched a lot stuff as a result of we had been caught at residence. After the lockdown, the viewers’s palates have modified. Perhaps this is the reason individuals are discovering the trailer of Babli Bouncer so refreshing . . .
Right, appropriate. I might say that is the USP of the movie- it is vitally refreshing. Individuals have not watched a woman bouncer and it is all about that. The journey of how she turns into a bouncer and every thing. And for me, I am getting a job which I’ve not performed to this point. Earlier, I performed a brat, health champion, any individual smug who’s bullying individuals. 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 at all times 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 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 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 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 suitable factor. As a result of we do not get so many alternatives to work with such large 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 to this point in order that I can present my vary of appearing 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 feel if I do not do it proper now, in a while, it turns into tough.
It is really easy to get typecast on this trade. When the casting director known as you and provided 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 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 joyful they noticed me like that as a result of not everybody can see that.
Inform me about working with Madhur Bhandarkar and Tamannaah.
After I acquired 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 every other position which I’ve performed. After I acquired the decision from Madhur Sir ki he desires to fulfill me within the workplace, I assumed ki he will likely be a really severe individual as a result of he has directed movies on such severe matters. However once I met him, I realised that he is a very totally different individual – 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 route group really feel unnoticed. He provides 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 at all times felt like I am having fun with every thing. That is one of the best a part of the director, I might say.
She is a implausible co-actor as a result of not everybody embraces the ideas you give and he or she has at all times embraced every time I mentioned ki this needs to be carried out within the scene and every time she has recommended one thing, I’ve at all times embraced it. That is the perfect factor you need in a co-actor. At some point I acquired up early within the morning to work out within the health club, like at 5 am and I noticed her understanding. You’re feeling good if you see the opposite individual can be as devoted as you might be. That is how within the movie, every thing goes collectively. So, I am wanting ahead to the film.
