Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - HTCITY ENTERTAINMENT - Rishabh Suri

Ac­tor Samir Kochhar, who was re­cently seen in the web se­ries Sa­cred Games, has been ap­proached for yet an­other dig­i­tal show. He is all set to sur­prise the au­di­ence with a never-seen-be­fore avatar for which he needs to ap­pear phys­i­cally strong.

A source in­forms, “Samir is a method ac­tor and be­lieves in get­ting into the skin of his char­ac­ters. Ac­cord­ing to the de­mand of his char­ac­ter, he has to un­dergo gru­elling gym train­ing to build his physique be­fore he starts shoot­ing. Samir is spend­ing most of his time in the gym and ad­her­ing to a proper diet plan. He is also prac­tic­ing stunts to prep for his role,” the source adds.

The ac­tor also shot for ac­tion se­quences for a film with ac­tor Prab­hud­heva re­cently. Is it a con­scious de­ci­sion to take up such projects?

He replies, “I have a great time do­ing ac­tion se­quences. How­ever it’s not some­thing I’m only look­ing at be­ing a part of. I am just look­ing at ex­plor­ing the ac­tor side of me, be that in com­edy, thriller, hor­ror, or any other space.”

Samir Kochhar has starred in films such as Jan­nat (2008) and House­full 3 (2016)
