— Vipul K. Shah

GG) Was becoming an actor your dream?
AP) No, this was not my dream. After I participated in Mr. Dehradun pageant, my interest towards glamour world rised.

GG) How did your journey start?
AP) Well, one of my friends told me to participate in Mr. Dehradun pageant in 2005. I participated and won the title. Gradually my interest towards glamour world increased and I decided to pursue a career as an actor. So I came to B-town in 2007 and the journey began.

GG) How did you get first break?
AP) I got my first break in the film Makad Jaala which was a Political Trap. I was lucky to debut as lead. I got the film by audition. Even today I remember my director Dinesh Kumar Sahu did a lot of hard work on me to play that character.

GG) How did you get Unmad?
AP) The director of Unmad, Shahid Kabeer, is a theater Guru. I have worked a lot with him. He has written many stories and one of them is Unmad. He narrated the story and asked me to play negative role. I read the story and quickly said yes. I have full trust on Shahidji as whatever he had thought for me must be right.

GG) Tell us about your character.
AP) I play a politician Shankar. He is very selfish and always thinks about his own benefits with dirty politics.

GG) How easy or tough was playing a negative role?
AP) After playing a lead in debut film, it was a little difficult to play a negative role. See when you play a negative role, you have to work much harder. It is not easy to play a negative role. You have to take lots of efforts. I gained 11 kg weight, had to change my hair style. The language, mannerism of a villain is different from the hero. So I studied and observed few characters to get into the skin of my character.

GG) How was your experience doing a film on socio political issue?
AP) Well it was a nice experience. Secondly it was a different experience playing a negative role. I hope audience like my work.

GG) What next?
AP) My next film ‘Paranormal Ishq’ will release soon. Till that, I have my fingers crossed.

Bidita Bag freezes in cold and continues shooting for ‘Moksh To Maya’

The Bengali beauty Bidita Bag has been winning hearts with her performance in Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Baabumoshai Bandookbaaz’ right from her lingos to her acting skills. As per the recent news, Bidita will be seen as a lead cast in Antaraa Creation’s upcoming movie ‘Moksh To Maya’, directed by Manoj Singh. The story is about the character ‘Maya’ who is in a hurdle of life where she chooses her desires and follows the consequences.

The entire movie was shot in Rajasthan in places like Khairthal, Bambora & Alwar. Since the movie was shot on live locations around the city without any premade set up, it was not an easy task to squeeze in the vanities for the actors during the movie.
Though the shoot began during the winter season, it was quite a chilly period for the actors to enact and survive the weather. The producers of ‘Moksh To Maya’ are all praises for the actors and their enthusiasm during the shoot that made it possible to wrap the movie despite the hurdles.

“We wanted to do everything possible for our actors and the team to make sure that they don’t suffer in such a weather, but due to the live locations and the constant change in location it was impossible to arrange a vanity van to keep them warm when they’re not shooting or are at break. Bidita Bag has been super supportive and has been very grounded throughout the shoot. Without any tantrums or demands, Bidita was enthusiastic and over heels every time during the shoot,” says the producers of the upcoming movie ‘Moksh To Maya’.
