Saqib finds it ‘interesting’ to sport mustache
New Delhi– Actor Saqib Saleem had to grow a mustache for his maiden digital project. He says since he had never sported one before, it was interesting to have the facial hair.
The “Race 3” actor will play a “dark but honest” character in ZEE5’s show “Rangbaaz”.
“To be honest, I have never had a mustache in my life. So just to have that, was very interesting. I couldn’t recognize myself for a few days. I think as an actor, it did put me in a different space,” Saqib told IANS.
Talking more about his character, he shared: “Although the process was very interesting, I made sure that I stopped working out because my character wasn’t supposed to look very muscular. I did a lot of cardio because there are different phases in the show.”
“I have to look like a man of different ages at different times. I wanted to make sure that I looked like that. My character is a gangster. There are shades of grey, but you will definitely find some heart in the character,” he added.
Acting is something I absolutely love: Cyrus Sahukar
New Delhi– Cyrus Sahukar has featured in Bollywood movies like “Delhi-6” and “Aisha”, and the host-actor wants to act more as he absolutely loves acting.
“I have done very little cinema because a large part of my life has been focused on gigs. About 80 days a year, I am on the road doing live events for corporates… I can say that acting is something I absolutely love. Therefore, a few years ago I promised myself that I must do theatre and had a really good time doing it,” Cyrus told IANS.
“Whether it was ‘Delhi-6’, ‘Aisha’ or ‘Love Breakups Zindagi’, I believe that the movies that I have done had very interesting and meaty roles. They were roles that I enjoyed doing. Would I like more? Of course, I’d like more,” he added.
His stint as a MTV VJ helped him with acting as well.
“I feel like in MTV, I primarily played many weird characters and for me that was like an acting performance. I do believe that the VJs at that time were very colourful and when you are a colourful person, there are a lot of aspects of yourself to explore that may lead them to become good actors.
“Also, the people who don’t act in real life are very interesting on camera because there is an openness and a weird timing to them. There is a glimpse of their soul in every character that they play,” he said.
“Elovator Pitch”, co-hosted by Cyrus, premiered last month on MTV.
