Gulshan Grover: Playing negative characters is like therapy for me
Mumbai– Gulshan Grover’s foray into the OTT space has been much talked about. The iconic ‘Bad Man’ of Hindi cinema was recently seen on SonyLIV’s ‘Your Honor 2’ as Gurjot Pannu, a charismatic mogul with his share of secrets.
Over the years, the actor has made a mark for himself by playing negative characters, and he believes playing such roles act like therapy for him.
The actor says, “Playing negative characters doesn’t affect me, in fact they purify me. It’s like therapy or a detox treatment. In many spiritual remedies, they say when you are sad, cry it out. You should take it out of your system. Similarly, for me, playing negative roles has been like therapy. It cleanses me completely (sic).”
He adds, “After shooting, I am calmer and relaxed. Many actors claim that when they play negative roles they carry it even after the shoot. I don’t understand that; it’s the opposite for me.”
Sharing his experience of playing Gurjot Pannu he said, “My main motive is to make things tricky and unpleasant for the other characters. From industry to industry, my connection and brand image as a villain have remained strong and ‘Your Honor 2’ on SonyLIV feels like the right show to enter the OTT sector as the ‘bad man’.”
Apart from ‘Your Honor 2’, the actor was also recently seen in Disney+ Hotstar’s demonetisation drama ‘Cash’ along with Amol Parashar, Smiriti Kalra and Kavin Dave, where he yet again played the antagonist, who is on a pursuit of his Rs 5 crore that get caught up in the chaos of demonetisation.
Abhishek opens up on how he feels about being compared to Big B
Mumbai– Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan shares how he feels when people compare him with his father Amitabh Bachchan on the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. He also requests contestant Rajshree Bag to sing a track ‘Bahon Mein Chale Aao’ featuring his mother Jaya Bachchan.
Abhishek said after looking at the performance of Rajshree, who is often compared with Lata Mangeshkar on the show, that she reminds him of being compared with his father.
“Rajshree, whenever I have got the chance to watch the show, I’ve seen people compare you to Lata didi. It actually reminded me about how people compare me with my father and ask me how I feel about it.”
According to him Amitabh Bachchan is a great actor in the industry and this is what he says to everyone making these comparisons. “My answer to them is that there’s no greater actor in this film industry than Amitabh Bachchan and if I’m being compared to him, I am sure I must have done something good.”
“Similarly, your voice has a different kind of magic like Lata ji and that’s why people are comparing your voice with her. I feel you should always take this as a compliment,” he concluded.
‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ airs on Saturday and Sunday on Zee TV.
