They’ve simply achieved what no different sequence or tv present from India has ever achieved. The highly-rated IMDb has curated an inventory of the most well-liked webseries and tv serials of all occasions. The checklist which accommodates 163 titles from internationally has just one Indian entry. Applause Leisure’s Rip-off 1992:Harshad Mehta Story directed by Hansal Mehta has made it into the coveted checklist as one of many most-watched sequence from internationally.
Pratik Gandhi who performed the eponymous position stated, “We knew we had been doing a honest job of it. However we might by no means guess it could go this far. My largest cause for accepting the position of Harshad Mehta was director Hansal Mehta. My producers Applause Leisure and Sameer Nair had been godsent. I like enjoying real-life characters. I’ve performed fairly numerous them on stage together with Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. It’s at all times a problem to painting a real-life character particularly one as a lot within the public area as Harshad Mehta.”
There have been a number of layers to Harshad Mehta’s character which Pratik acquired interested in. “I like enjoying characters with advanced human traits. Additionally, that is the most important undertaking that I’ve finished in my life. All these causes had been greater than sufficient incentive to do the undertaking.”
Pratik says he did a number of analysis on Harshad Mehta. “I used to be supplied with a number of materials. I additionally did my very own analysis. There have been some movies of Harshad that I studied. There’s additionally an informative interview of Harshad with legendary journalist Pritish Nandy. The script in itself supplied an in depth doc on the character. All this, plus a number of discussions with the writers and administrators helped me lots.”
Pratik undertook a complete regime of bodily preparation to play Harshad. “Once I first met director Hansal Mehta he instructed me I’m too lean and skinny to play Harshad Mehta. I needed to achieve 18 kilos earlier than we began taking pictures. I gorged on all of the Gujarati goodies that I earlier prevented. By the point we began taking pictures, I had an enormous stomach and a number of fats on my face. And naturally the trademark Harshad Mehta mustache.”
He took a aware resolution to not seem like Harshad. “Wanting just like the real-life character definitely makes the actor’s job simpler particularly when it’s somebody as well-known as Harshad Mehta. He liked being within the limelight. One in all his pictures together with his Lexus remains to be standard. Whereas making the sequence on Harshad we took a aware resolution that I gained’t attempt to seem like the true Harshad. Reasonably I’d concentrate on his behaviour, perspective, and persona, be it his helplessness initially, confidence, then over-confidence to the extent of letting his conceitedness and ego get the higher of his judgment. Hansal was clear about not caricaturing Harshad, however relatively imbibing his traits into my persona.”
Being a Gujarati helped Pratik perceive Harshad higher. “It helped me to grasp his thought course of, his desires, a knack for understanding cash issues, the entrepreneurial spirit. And that dedication to be self-employed. That’s a Gujarati trait. Although I need to confess that I come from a household of educationists. Nobody in my household is an entrepreneur.”
