I learnt bartending for film : Mimoh Chakraborty
Mimoh Chakraborty, son of veteran actor Mithun Chakraborty, believes in getting into the skin of his characters - so much so that he went visiting various pubs and bars to learn how to be a good bartender for his role in his next project.india Updated: Jan 19, 2010 19:12 IST
"I have visited a lot of lounge bars and pubs not only in Mumbai but also in Kolkata so that I can play my role of a bartender in the film in a better way. I researched for three months for the character. I noticed every mannerism of bartenders," Mimoh told IANS over phone from Kolkata.
"The way they talk, walk and the way they deal with their customers - I noticed everything. And after all the hard work we put in the research, I felt quite comfortable while shooting on the sets," he said.
Spaghetti 24X7 revolves around the concept of bars and the life of a bartender. The film's title is the name of the bar in the movie.
The film, directed by Gaurav Pandey, marks the first time that Mimoh will pair up with his father on the silver screen.
The 25-year-old says his father's presence made him constantly nervous on the sets.
"It has been a great learning experience to work with my dad. He has always given his best shot and it became my responsibility to match up to his level in every aspect - be it acting or dancing. But his presence made me very nervous and confronting him was nervewracking for me.
"During the shoot I used to stammer a lot when he was around, so we had to take a week off so I could make myself calm and comfortable with his presence on the sets," he said.
Mithun's younger son, Rimoh, too is a part of the project as the assistant director, but the latter has kept acting as a career option as well, says Mimoh.
"Rimoh has kept his doors open. Although he did a movie named Phir Kabhi which was my father's movie, he is focusing on direction as of now," he said.
Mimoh was last seen in his debut film Jimmy, which failed to impress the critics and audience alike in 2008. But the failure didn't bog him down.
"Every actor goes through a rough phase; so did I. But I wasn't bogged down by it. Moreover, I am really looking forward and hoping that audiences would accept my talent and like my acting.
"I am not looking for any specific roles and limiting my dimensions. I would love to be a part of a movie whose script needs me and is good. Even if it is a five minutes screen presence, I won't mind. The role should excite me," he added.
