- You are playing an important role in a film ‘Mohenjo Daro’ and how it feels to be associated with such a big film?
Ans: My previous films have been equally big. The canvas of Mohenjo Daro of course is larger and my role in this film has been the most challenging to play. It is hugely satisfying to be able to portray a larger than life character on screen.
- What is your role in the movie and how difficult was it to portray?
Ans: My character is called Jakhiro in this film. He is the native of Mohenjo Daro and an important member of the ruling syndicate. He loses his sanity due to a series of unfortunate incidents in his life. It was a challenge to play this character because Jakhiro is not an ordinary man. I had to act mad in a dignified, almost spiritual sort of a way.
- In 2015… you have done a number of films like Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Haider, and Ghayal Once again in 2015? So which of these roles is the toughest for you to play?
Ans: The toughest to play till now has been Jakhiro of Mohenjo Daro. Please watch the film to know What I mean!
- This year also you worked in ‘Shorgul’, ‘Mohenjo Doro’ releasing and Then ‘Raees’? So how excited you are for your upcoming projects?
Ans: Pretty excited, naturally.
- Any incident or moment that you want to share with us during the shoots of ‘Mohenjo Daro’?
Ans: There were many interesting incidents but the one I recall instantly is the one where the security on the set tried to shoo me away, taking me to be a madman trying to sneak in.
- ‘Mohenjo Daro’ is a big budgeted movie and it will have to face ‘Rustom’ on August 12, So what do you have to say about this big clash at the Box-Office?
Ans: I don’t see any clash at the Box office. You can watch one film on Friday and the other one on Saturday.
- You have started in the Television Industry with 1995 show ‘Captian House’, which was a popular show and now you are a part of Bollywood movie ‘Mohenjo Daro’. How was your journey of the last 20 years working in TV and Films?
Ans: It has been a fantastic journey to say the least.
- You have done a number of movies in the past also, why it took so long time for you to foray in the Mainstream Bollywood films?
Ans: One reason could be that I never really went out asking for work. I did what was offered to me in hindsight. I think I should have been more proactive.
- And Finally, What are your future projects rather than ‘Raees’?
Ans: I have a number of other releases this year My Father Iqbal releases in September. 2016, The END releases in October and Force 2 may release by the year end. Currently, I am shooting for Kaabil with Hrithik Roshan.
