Saqib es­says a gang­ster

Sunday Tribune - - TRA VEL -

SAQIB Saleem, who is busy shooting for the dig­i­tal show, Rang­baaz, said he was fas­ci­nated by the sprin­kle of re­al­ism in Hindi cin­ema.

“I am very fas­ci­nated by it. I al­ways feel that, for an ac­tor, it is a very a tricky thing to do when peo­ple are out there,” said Saleem.

The 30-year-old ac­tor, who is the brother of ac­tress Huma Qureshi, praised Ran­bir Kapoor for his por­trayal of ac­tor San­jay Dutt in the 2018 film Sanju.

He added that it was both dif­fi­cult and in­ter­est­ing when an ac­tor’s skills were tested.

Rang­baaz will nar­rate the story of a man en­gaged in the dark and dirty world of crime and show the hu­man side of one of the most feared gang­sters of the re­gion, in the 1990s.

It is set against the back­drop of Go­rakh­pur, and Saqib will be seen play­ing a gang­ster.
