Ac­tor Chan­dan Roy Sanyal is known for his method act­ing and the por­trayal of some pow­er­ful char­ac­ters — but there’s a bit of a snag. “I have put on so many faces dur­ing my ca­reer that no one knows how I look in real life,” he says. “It means that peo­ple love what I’ve done, and re­late to me by those char­ac­ters,” adds the ac­tor, who was in films like the Shahid Kapoorstar­rer Kaminey (2009); the com­edy F.A.L.T.U. (2011); and Jab Harry Met Se­jal (2017). He will be seen play­ing a sous chef in the up­com­ing film, Chef, star­ring Saif Ali Khan. “You know, when I’m play­ing a cer­tain role, I try to be­come that char­ac­ter. I try to bring com­plete energy into that role. It’s amaz­ing that some char­ac­ters have res­onated with peo­ple,” he says. How­ever, his fans have a “real tough time” recog­nis­ing him off-screen, says Chan­dan. “We were pro­mot­ing a film, and there was this beau­ti­ful girl who came up to me, and asked me if I was part of the crew. When I in­tro­duced my­self, she recog­nised my name from some other film, and said, ‘You look so dif­fer­ent from that char­ac­ter you played’. She was sorry that she couldn’t recog­nise me,” he re­calls with a laugh.
