Mumbai– Veteran actor Anupam Kher recently saw R. Madhavan’s directorial debut ‘Rocketry: The Nambi Effect’ and he seems to be mightily impressed. Anupam took to Twitter with a video where he shared his thoughts after watching the film.

The ‘Special 26’ actor said every Indian should apologise to rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan, who was once wrongly accused of espionage. R Madhavan, who has directed the film, also portrays the lead character of the former aerospace engineer.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Anupam wrote, “Watched @ActorMadhavan’s #RocketryTheFilm based on @NambiNOfficial’s life. OUTSTANDING! MOVING!!INSPIRATIONAL! Cried my heart out. Every Indian should watch it! And say sorry to #NambiNarayanan sir. That is how we can correct some wrongs done in the past. Bravo dear #Madhavan!”

Vineet Kumar Singh reveals why he gravitates towards dark, intense characters

Mumbai– Bollywood actor Vineet Kumar Singh, who is gearing up for the upcoming third season of popular OTT series ‘Rangbaaz’, recently opened up on what attracts him to dark and intense roles. He feels that having done so many characters with a dark undertone sets the reference for the storytellers as they visualise him easily in such roles.

The actor said, “Makers give me dark and intense roles because they think I’ll be able to do it well. And I feel as if I have done such roles majorly so it becomes a reference point. It’s not that I love doing only dark & intense roles. I want to play more different types of characters which I will in the future.”

His character of Haroon Shah Ali Baig in ‘Rangbaaz – Darr Ki Rajneeti’ is very far off from what he is in real life. So how did he crack this character and get into his skin? He revealed, “I had to do a lot of research to find and understand this character and his characteristics. I read the script many times, and marked many things which would take me closer to the character.”

Sharing his process further, he said, “I spend a lot of time with the writer, director and the showrunner to understand how they perceive the character. After collating all material, I then try to get into the mind of the character and then start feeling the mannerisms of the character. Then I get prompted from within, what is right and what is wrong about how I am pursuing this character.”

“For me it’s very difficult to switch on and off from the character because I take a lot of time for preparation but once done with the prep then I let loose and let things flow naturally and organically,” he added. (IANS)
