Actor and Acting coach Saurabh Sachdeva joins the cast of Bejoy Nambiar’s Taish in London along with Harshvardhan Rane, Jim Sarbh and Pulkit Samrat. The actor has delivered noteworthy performances through his last films Manmarziyaan where his performance garnered immense applause from the audience.
On sharing his experience on working with the director, he says “Bejoy Nambiar is a smart storyteller and a techno-savvy craftsman. Shuttling between my acting school, theatre production and film set, I don’t get time to watch movies, so I haven’t watched all his past work. Having said that, one thing which I noticed during the shoot is Nambiar has a unique sense of shot-taking which is his style as seen in Shaitaan and Wazir too. He doesn’t shy away to make new attempts and explore new avenues with his stories.
On talking about his rapport with his Co actor, “I have known Harshvardhan since long as he was my student in Barry John Institute and recently he visited my acting workshop as he started preparing for his role. I’ve witnessed him grow as an actor from the first day in my class till this day when I’m sharing a screen with him. Harsh constantly work on his craft and always invest in his skills, it’s so overwhelming to see his journey as an actor. Interesting part of this film for me is that my co-actors Harsh and Zoa Morani are my students too, our bonding from the class and workshop will be visible on the screen too.”
Actor Harshvardhan Rane on praising Saurabh, “Saurabh sir has been my teacher since I had done my acting course at Barry John’s Acting School. And now I can call him a friend, I share everything with him not just because he is a friend but also because he is the most non judgemental person I have met. I can’t believe I am sharing screen space with him, I was blown away by his screen presence in Sacred Games Isa . Every time I am in the same frame with him and Bejoy sir calls Action it’s a dream come true for me. I feel very lucky to hang out with my favourite director (Bejoy Sir) and teacher (Saurabh sir) on the same set.But being his student I hope I make Saurabh sir proud when he watches this film(TAISH) in the theatre.”
He will be seen again in Netflix web series Sacred Games Season 2 playing Suleiman Isa.
