This new scary look of yours in ‘Antim’ is totally different out of your first impression in ‘Lavayatri’. What’s the response thus far?
It is very thrilling as a result of that when my first film ‘Lavayatri’ got here out they mentioned I’m a really stunning, good boy and issues like that. Folks have really been in a position to differentiate between my seems. In ‘Antim’ I play extra of a darkish character. We had been engaged on my search for three years. I’m comfortable that arduous work has paid off. I used to be bald to present a glance check to deliver authenticity.
From being a lover boy to an intense hardcore motion hero – you will look completely unfamiliar. What was behind the change?
I began getting related roles after my first movie got here out. I actually needed to alter the physique of my work. There was loads of discuss my first movie. After I noticed the ‘mulshi sample’, I assumed I needed one thing related. I additionally needed to problem myself. The dialogues caught on me, and I felt like that is one thing that has loads of method and scope. For this movie, I felt I wanted a cinematic presence. I wanted to realize loads of weight, eat and alter my voice.
Talking of Salman Khan, sharing display area with him will need to have been a enjoyable expertise. Has it ever occurred that Salman’s presence turns into overwhelming?
It is overwhelming. I did not anticipate myself to catch this. He is an amazing Opus star, and while you act reverse him, you understand you are not working with him as a household, you are working and watching him as a celebrity! I by no means imagined sharing a display or poster along with her. It was additionally strain. And I assumed this man had an amazing affect, but when I managed a scene and folks mentioned I did an excellent job, it could be my win.
There should be loads of strain to remain in the identical body …
Sure, there may be strain. However I at all times attempt to take a look at the constructive facet of issues. There’s additionally loads of give attention to the movie on account of its presence. There can be many individuals watching this film. And I assume in the present day, if it weren’t for that, I would not be capable to go for the theatrical launch. It convinces me of all these components and, as an actor, these are the constructive issues that I wish to give attention to.
Here’s a piece of recommendation that Salman shared with you on the set through the shoot, which can stick with you ceaselessly …
I keep in mind after I did my first scene within the film I requested him if I used to be doing an excellent job. He mentioned, ‘Do not take my recommendation … I am an actor myself. If I inform you what to do, you’ll begin copying me and I do not need two Salman in a single body. Viewers wish to see Aayush Sharma vs. Salman Khan. He then requested me to seek the advice of the director. He, on this movie, by no means mentioned something; It gave me full artistic freedom and we additionally improved loads of scenes through the capturing.
Does the truth that you might be Salman’s brother-in-law obscure the actual fact that you’re a hardworking and noble actor?
When you find yourself underneath an enormous banyan tree, the daylight is rather less. It is going to take a very long time for daylight to achieve me, after which individuals will begin listening to who I’m. And I am unable to criticize that component or weave a tragic story about it, as a result of, on the finish of the day, I acquired a break from them, my second movie is with them, so I am very grateful to them. I actually imagine that it’ll take a while for individuals to acknowledge my work, however they’ll discover it solely after I proceed to do what they don’t anticipate me to do. Progressively and constantly they’ll start to understand that I’ve one thing to present myself. There are additionally benefits and drawbacks when you find yourself related to an enormous persona.
How a lot do you let opinions and critics trouble you?
I cannot lie. After I learn the primary essential opinions of Lavayatri, I did not actually perceive why individuals had been focusing on me. I assumed there was a smear marketing campaign behind it. However I quickly realized that this was the mistaken factor to do. I do not suppose I might have achieved Rahulia if these critics and opinions hadn’t written these issues about me. I actually wish to thank them. I at all times say I am not an actor, I am unable to act … I am an appearing pupil, I am studying, I am slowly rising up. I’ll take hints from my director, my co-stars. One factor that must be steady is development. I went by each evaluation of ‘Lavayatri’, made notes and modified accordingly. I imagine in seeing critics not as my enemy, however as individuals who will assist me develop into a greater actor.
After studying the evaluation of ‘Lavayatri’, as a result of fixed strain to remain alive within the movie business, I instantly made a acutely aware effort to not become involved in any movie, as there isn’t a level in bringing your equal facet on this manner.
Enjoying the function of a gangster has been a turning level within the careers of many actors earlier than – Sanjay Dutt, Manoj Bajpayee, and even Salman Khan for that matter. Are you hoping that Rahulia’s character will do the identical for you?
I undoubtedly hope that occurs. I hope there’s a delayed impact.
What’s your method to constructing your profession and growing your stardom?
There are two issues that folks at all times push on themselves, proper at the start of their careers – field workplace and perceptions. For me, proper now, it’s extra about discovering my very own ft, making errors, studying from them. I am nice with making errors.
‘Suryavanshi’ has now set large requirements for the movie business. Do you anticipate ‘Antim’ to make such a visit to the field workplace?
I hope so. I’m not going to maintain ‘Suryavanshi’ as a criterion. This time the numbers can be shared between ‘Satyamev Jayate 2’ and ‘Antim’. And ‘Antim’ will not be an out-and-out business movie; It’s a darkish and intense movie.
