To prepare for his character in Subhash Kapoor’s Guddu Rangeela, actor Amit Sadh who plays a Haryanvi completed a 15-day workshop in order to understand and imbibe the nuances of his character. The film that stars Arshad Warsi will see the duo playing brothers on screen.
“This is the first time, I’m entering a territory like this, when it comes to my role, and so I had to really work on the look, body language and the accent, because there’s also a lot of dialogue-baazi in the film. I have to work extra hard, because I’ll be working with Arshad Warsi who’s one of the best actors we have,” says Sadh. While he was the only one who attended the workshop with his director, he says he had met and interacted with Warsi when the latter dropped by.
The actor thoroughly enjoyed the process though. He adds, “I like breaking my own limitations. I like to look and behave like my character when I’m doing a film. Sometimes it can be difficult to be in a room for five hours, doing the same things again and again, but then, that’s what acting is, and that’s what I’m here for. So it’s fun. Besides, I’m very lucky to have a director like Subhash Kapoor. He makes you work hard till you have mastered your scene. I already feel that I’ve grown ten folds as an actor, during this fifteen-day workshop.”
Guddu Rangeela shall go on floors next month, and will mostly be shot in the north India. The film also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Ronit Roy.
