You have won the hearts of the audience after giving an incredible performance in Haraam Khor. And you have been a theatre artiste too. Is there a difference in response when it comes to theatre and films? What kind of response for you seems to be more fulfilling? — Sonia Lakhani (Leh)
Theatre is live, you feel it and you can hear the audience laugh – their reactions. Masaan ki screening ke liye, hum bethe the sunne ke liye, kya hua? Kaisa laga? With theatre, it is spot on, we had a show a few hours ago as well, so we were aware of which punches were working and which ones weren’t. You really grow with the same performance and same characters. In films, as you shoot, you keep getting deeper into that thing. Once the film is done, you break up with the character because then you won’t be living that character ever again.
