Actor Bhushan Pradhan has quite a few surprises in store for his fans this year. A few months ago, he had announced his Bollywood debut opposite Raima Sen. And, now he has shared another interesting information about his film Shimmgga. Bhushan will be seen in two completely different looks in the movie.

Talking about the same, the Tu Tithe Asave (2018) actor says, “This is for the first time, I will be seen in a double role. I am playing a young son and an older father in Shimmga, which revolves around the festival of Holi. It was challenging as I had to look convincing in both the ages. For the father’s role I grew a moustache and worked around it. However, for the son’s part I wore a fake one. It was difficult working with a fake moustache, as I have a broad smile (laughs).”

Interestingly, this year, Bhushan will also be seen going all out in a dance number, for the same film. His last dance number was in the film Time Bara Vait (2015). “For this song, I did not even have time for a rehearsal. We had just the day of the shoot to figure things out. I have managed to do my best and it looks good today, but I was way too nervous before the shoot,” says Bhushan. He adds that he is not formally trained in dance and tends to get conscious about it. “After a 11-day course in Puducherry at Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Arts & Research, I feel I have managed to get back the rhythm in my body,” he says.

With the festival of Holi approaching, the Amhi Doghi (2018) actor recalls how despite having his maternal side in Raigad, he had no idea of Shimmgga. He says, “I have never celebrated Shimmga, and did not know of the palkhi procession. his film gave me a great insight into the festival and how the village celebrates it.”
