will even find me helping them in their ad campaign. This is where my original profession comes into operation. And, I enjoy doing that job too, which is full of creativity. In my past film ‘Gaiir’ and the forthcoming film ‘Pratisaad’ my involvement has been there in the ad campaign too .
Q: You have been very choosy about your roles. Does the story and the role offered to you matter a lot ?
A: It is not only the story and role offered, but what I am more particular about is the presentation of screenplay. Unfortunately, today not many Marathi and Hindi film makers are paying attention to screenplay, which is the heart of the film. If your screenplay is good, you are sure to catch attention of the audience and hold them back to their seats from start till end. I really get inspired when I see the work of late Vijay Tendulkar through the screenplays written by him. With limitations during his time, he was so perfect in his presentation on paper.
Q: Which role has impressed you the most ?
A: All the types of roles I performed have been good, as they were my selection. I enjoy playing variety of roles with characters like a doctor, an industrialist, a bank employee, an Army man or a Police officer; since I am not that in real life. It is a biggest challenge preparing for such roles .
Q; Do you mean that before playing a Homeopath in ‘Pratisaad’, you studied Dr. Nikam ?
A; I not only studied him but also did a lot of reading about him and interacted with so many people who were close to him and those who benefited with his treatment. During the making of this film, it also came to my notice that this is the first film in the world on the subject of Homeopathy medicine.
Q: So, you are eagerly waiting for the release ?
A: Yes, I am very excited about this film’s release in May 2010. And, I am sure, everybody would love to watch it.
Q: Being a creative person with the background of art, are you planning your own production ?
A: Not now. It is too early to comment on it. But, surely, in years to come I will do my own film.
