Tell us about your role in Acid Factory?
My role in the film is about a guy who has lost his memory and is an extremely edgy and aggresive person. He is desperately seeking to find out his identity.
How difficult or easy was it for you to play this character?
Well, the character was written very well and that made it extremely easy for the actors to play their respective roles. It wasn't particularly difficult for me. Once, we started shooting for the film, we actually started living with the identity of the characters.
Any memorable incident while shooting for the film?
Honestly, the entire experience was great. The best part was to work with so many talented actors. The chemistry between all of us is very evident on screen. It almost seemed as if we were actually locked up in the factory!
How is it different from your previous films?
I try and make every film I do look different. This one gave me the opportunity to play a really intense character, something I've wanted to do for a very long time. It is a very off beat film. The audience will realise when they watch it.
Action, comedy or romance - what kind of roles do you enjoy playing the most?
I enjoy intense roles. Although, I find myself comfortable in most genres.
How critical is the film's success for you considering that your previous films didn't do well at the box office?
Every film's fate is critical to me and adds up to building one's career. Of course, every actor looks forward to his film being a success.
Are you also going to produce a film soon?
Regarding my production, there will be a formal announcement very soon.
