Actor Aniruddh Dave is currently working with filmmaker Vikram Bhatt on his new show Untouchables, directed by his daughter Krishna Bhatt. This is Aniruddh’s first show for the web and he says that he is loving being part of it.
“This is the first time that I am doing something in the digital space. I have been part of theatre and my experience has undoubtedly been very good. As far as television and Bollywood are concerned, it’s been quite long that I have been part of these platforms as well. I feel that now is the time for web series and the audience have really taken to this format. The future lies here itself. No one has time to watch anything on television these days. Whatever you love to watch, you can watch on your cell phone. So I think in the future, people would prefer watching web series than television shows as they don’t get time to follow these every day at a specific time,” he says.
Talking about his role, he says, “My role is very special. It is a high-performance oriented role. It was a very tough role for me to portray. The character has different shades, both negative and positive.”
Ask him how it is to work alongside Vikram, and he says, “I never thought that a brilliant director can also be a good actor but when he started acting, it was very natural. He has a very good command over the language because he writes also. His acting is very realistic.”
The actor is also all praises for Krishna. “The first time when I saw her, I never thought that she will do something like this. But now that she is grown up, all I can say is that she has learned a lot and is doing a brilliant job. She has seen how shooting takes place right from her childhood days. She is technically superior to many others and her vision is clear. Her interpretation and perception of every shot is very clear. She is very clear about what she wants to see on camera and how to get it. And if you are working with a young director, you can freely discuss ideas, which is great,” he says.
