A pleasantly completely different character, a brand new look and a script that dwells deep into each character are what satisfied Sumeet Vyas to be part of ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s new collection Darkish 7 White.
On this interview, Sumeet, who is understood for his happy-go-lucky roles, talks about taking part in a darkish character in Darkish 7 White, and the expansion of the digital medium.
Your character Yudhveer Singh could be very completely different from the whole lot you’ve performed till now. What was the primary response to the character?
I used to be pleasantly shocked that they thought of me for this half since that is one thing I at all times wished to strive. I used to be very eager to push the envelope, so I used to be glad that they selected me for the half. Additionally, director Sattwik Mohanty had a particular look in his head for the character as he wished to indicate the transformation over time from a university scholar to a politician.
Weren’t you apprehensive about how Yudhveer seems?
I used to be apprehensive, particularly with the wig as a result of I haven’t stored my hair this lengthy. I didn’t understand how it might come collectively. I simply didn’t need to appear to be an fool. However then we tried a few issues, they usually appeared convincing. My solely concern was that it ought to look actual. As a result of if the viewers will consider it as faux, even for a minute, then the attraction of it’s gone. So we paid plenty of consideration to that facet.
Yudhveer is your first darkish character. How was it taking part in him? Did it take a toll, or is it enjoyable to play somebody who you aren’t?
Each. It was enjoyable to play somebody who I’m not. Having stated that, it does take a toll as a result of it goes into sure areas that are actually darkish and twisted. The harder half is if you stroll out of the set, attain house and you continue to are tousled in your head. You consider belongings you don’t need to take into consideration.
The trailer featured some intimate scenes. How satisfied have been you about these scenes?
It’s all about aesthetics. It’s all about why do you need to present that. Is that part of the narrative? Is it transferring the story ahead in any method? Whether it is, then it doesn’t really feel awkward as a result of the power is true and the explanation behind it’s proper. However whether it is achieved for impact, then it feels uncomfortable, each to look at and carry out. So, I at all times am very clear why are we doing it, how a lot are we going to indicate and if any relationship or character dynamics is popping out of it.
Just lately, we have now seen many net exhibits which have handled themes of energy play, crime, homicide, politics. What makes Darkish 7 White completely different?
It’s a homicide thriller which is customized from a novel, so it’s got this thriller novel form of high quality. It’s a suspense drama the place you retain guessing until the top as to who’s the assassin. In order that hook is very nice, and then you definitely dwell into the lives of characters who’re affected due to this one individual and his actions.
You stated you shot for Darkish 7 White simply after the lockdown. Have been you able to be on a set with so many individuals round?
I feel everybody was apprehensive and a bit scared to be on the units. However after a couple of days, individuals bought the dangle of it. We actors had it simple since we solely needed to do our scenes and return to our self-importance vans. However the assist workers was actually struggling. Some individuals have been doing heavy-duty bodily work, they usually needed to put on a masks and PPE equipment, so their life was actually robust. I feel we don’t have any proper to complain.
You’re among the many first few who bought success on the digital medium. Do you suppose the true potential of the medium is being correctly utilised by the leisure trade?
I feel so. Persons are exploiting and exploring this medium to the fullest. Some nice and a few actually dangerous content material is popping out of it. However that’s half and parcel of the job. Nevertheless, that is the medium which inspires new individuals and people who find themselves established, on the identical degree. That is what’s the spark of this medium.
And, what’s your tackle censorship of content material on the digital medium?
So long as there may be certification, it’s effective. However when individuals say we’re going to censor one thing and we’re going to determine what is nice so that you can watch, that I feel could be very uncomfortable. This can be very undemocratic. You’re nobody to determine what content material could have what impression on me. As soon as you’re an grownup, you’re free to decide on what you need and don’t need to watch.
You may have a brand new position to play personally. How do you propose to stability work and spending time together with your son Ved?
That may be a robust job. After I was capturing for this present, Ekta and Ved had gone to Ekta’s mom’s house. So, it was barely simpler for me to come back again house after the shoot as a result of I used to be not frightened about Ved. However now that he’s again, I’m scared to go to crowded locations. However ultimately, you must study to reside with it.
