Ajab Sa Risk Hai (Siddhant Cinevision Limited) as a heavy weight boxer in real life. Little wonder that he was chosen to play the role the gigantic boxer.
Though the actor has no previous boxing experience, he was into Budokai Martial Arts. He says, “I had learnt it for two years but had to leave it for health reasons.”
The actor undertook some boxing lessons to prepare for the role of a boxer. “I could pick up boxing fast. Hailing from Jammu, I didn’t know how to speak the Haryanvi. I had to learn the language for this show.”
Though this is the actor’s first TV show, he has featured in films like Singh is King, De Dana Dan, Welcome, Rowdy Rathore and Khiladi 786. Currently, he is thoroughly enjoying playing this boxer who has a dual personality. He explains, “Boxer Chacha is a sweet and childlike character when he is at home with his family. When he is outside, he can be very rough and tough especially when disputes need to be settled. His wrath during the time he dipped a person in the well to put him in his place was a good instance. At times ‘fire may come out of his eyes’ and nobody may seem to be at his mercy.”...being a human...
