Namit Das on playing a cop for the first time in ‘Mafia’

Mumbai–Actor Namit Das has shared the experience of playing a cop for the first time in his latest digital series, “Mafia”.

Sharing a photo that shows him in khaki, he posted on Instagram: “This was right after the first shot that I gave for #MAFIA as Nitin Kumar. Having never played a cop there was something undiscovered that I felt after i wore this uniform. I felt proud. There was a certain sense of responsibility. And all of this by just wearing the costume; playing a character that I will live only for the days that we were shooting. I look beyond and salute the work of all those who protect us.”

“Policemen, Army, Airforce, Naval for whom I am sure it goes beyond the uniform. It’s not a character they play. It’s the life they live & the life they know. A sense of gratitude descends. It’s their sacrifice which knows no boundaries. Probably the reason why I live, I breathe & can think about a future. Thank you @birsadasgupta @rohan_ghose & @aritsen07 for letting me live Nitin. It did give me a flavour of what responsibility can feel like. In the politics of humanity we often forget the people who are most important. My sense of gratitude towards those who really matter,” he wrote.

“Mafia” is about six college buddies who reunite for a bachelorette party that turns into a game of whodunnit as the past returns to haunt them.

In the psychological thriller, Namit plays Nitin Kumar, a Dalit from Bihar, who enters the police force to fight against the injustice meted out to his community.

Esha opened up on her state of mind in an Instagram post and also revealed what she does when she feels negative. On her verified Instagram account, she shared a photo where she can be seen performing yoga.

“Yoga is not a workout, it’s a work-in– Does anyone else feel they lose their pose balance if emotionally not in the right place? ‘Yog’ is a prevedic Indian practise which is a combination of physical mental n spiritual self. Hence personally am not a fan of the western version of yoga where it’s taken as a mere exercise, but the fact that it’s origin meant more about aligning our whole inner self.”

“I know, this year has shook us all, but it even woke us. Whenever m feeling negative, I try and focus on all the blessings I still have. By god’s grace if you have a roof above your head, food to eat, family that loves you and is healthy, you are already blessed by god.”

“These 5 months have been an emotional roller coaster for me, for all of us, but I always pick myself up, and yoga has been my reason for that. Be loyal and consistent, everyday try and be a better version of yourself. Don’t think you are in a rat race. We all have our different paths, find yours with self love and positivity,” shared the actress on Instagram, adding a piece of advice for those who are feeling low in the current situation.

On work front, Esha was last seen as a police officer in the web series “REJCTX2”.
