I wanted to work with Ran­veer Singh: Vib­hav Roy

Work­ing with Mr Bhansali in Pad­maa­vat was a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence,” says Vib­hav Roy, who played an im­por­tant role in the San­jay Leela Bhansali di­rec­to­rial. His peers and friends were sur­prised to see him in the film. Vib­hav says, “We had signed a nondis­clo­sure agree­ment and there­fore, I couldn’t tell any­one that I was in the film. Peo­ple were pleas­antly sur­prised and I am happy with the feed­back I have re­ceived for my role in the film. I got to learn a lot from Mr Bhansali and I was rub­bing shoul­ders with Ran­veer (Singh), Raza Mu­rad saab and other won­der­ful ac­tors. I have worked a lot in tele­vi­sion but this is my first fea­ture film. It is ful­fill­ing to be part of it.”

The Gus­takh Dil ac­tor thanks the cast­ing direc­tor, Shruti Ma­ha­jan who got him on board. “Once you are shoot­ing, Mr Bhansali gives you every­thing on a plat­ter as he takes care of all his ac­tors. He looks at every­thing in minute de­tail. He is very open to sug­ges­tions so it was fun to work with him in the film. I had done a video for the dig­i­tal medium as I wanted to do more than TV se­ri­als and ex­per­i­ment, and I am thank­ful I got this chance. Films are, of course, a dif­fer­ent world than the kind of in­fra­struc­ture you get in tele­vi­sion. I took up this film as I wanted to ex­pe­ri­ence how it feels to work with so many tal­ented peo­ple in­clud­ing the cast, crew and of course, Mr Bhansali.”

Vib­hav was a bit ner­vous work­ing with Ran­veer as most of his scenes were with him. “He is my favourite ac­tor and I re­ally wanted to work with him. He was very kind, help­ful, en­cour­ag­ing and sup­port­ive. Usu­ally stars are not ap­proach­able but on the con­trary, he was like a friend on set and quite ac­com­mo­dat­ing. When I was hes­i­tant to ask ques­tions on set, he helped a lot.” Vib­hav has another film re­leas­ing soon where he plays the lead and hopes to grab more eye­balls.
