My director has made me younger than I am: Pankaj Kapoor
Veteran actor Pankaj Kapoor is all geared up for the release of Vishal Bhardwaj's Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and he would be seen playing the character of Mandola in the film. The audience will get to see the actor after a long time on the silver screen and thanks to the film; he would be seen doing a lot of singing and dancing.
THIS IS the third film of Pankaj Kapoor
with Vishal Bhardwaj. He always admired the director's work. Talking about his experience of working with Bhardwaj, Kapoor says, “Whenever I have worked with Vishal, it has been a pleasure because he is a person who knows his work, knows how to recount a story and how to think of a story in a different way. He also has a good hold of the story's milieu, music and the characters in his films. Whenever he brings a job for me I am elated in the same way as a small child is when he is gifted a toffee for the first time.”
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola has unique music. Not only Anushka Sharma
and Imran Khan, but Pankaj Kapoor too has been seen in the promos dancing to the tunes of Oye boy oye boy Charlie. Talking about this experience, the otherwise reserved actor told NNIS, “My director has made me younger than I am. He demanded certain things from me, which I haven't done of late. These were things one used to do during theaters when one was in National School of Drama but it has been years since I actually danced. I was a bit concerned because I had not done it but with rehearsals and with inspiration from him and my co actors, especially the people who were choreographing, I was able to pull it off.”
He also added that as an actor it is the demand of the profession that they do certain things. Talking about Musaddilal and detective Karan Singh, he says television ceases to be creative after a while. The actor has not been seen on small screen for some time but says he might return if he finds some interesting opportunities.
He also talked about the era when television had quality and people wanted to be part of it. He explained that television is a tiring medium and after a point it becomes very uncreative.
