Ur­bane, pol­ished and cl a s s y, Bh u s h a n Pradhan is ev­ery jour­nal­ist’s dream sub­ject. In an exclusive with Citadel, Bhushan opens up on life, cin­ema and more… Tell us about your rst tryst with act­ing. Oh, I be­gan act­ing at the age of 8! My rst en­counter was with the stage; it all started with this play called Vad­di­vshachi Bhet. The play was about lack of good par­ent­ing and the ef­fects it could have on the psy­chol­ogy of the child. On the day of the play, a lot of par­ents broke down at my per­for­mance; that was and will re­main one of my nest re­wards as an ac­tor. That’s some­thing! Mov­ing onto the in­dus­try, re­count your ini­tial days for us. That is al­to­gether one dif­fer­ent story. Dur­ing my ini­tial days, I was nearly al­ways ner­vous around my co-star, which denitely is an is­sue when it comes to giv­ing a good per­for­mance. But with time, I learnt that once you are open about learn­ing, peo­ple are will­ing to help you. So, I be­gan ap­proach­ing my se­niors with queries I might have, and the help that I re­ceived was over­whelm­ing. To­day, I share a great rap­port with all my se­niors and co-stars, and that shows in my per­for­mances.
