Sacred Games (2018)
I remember this shot. I asked him (Vikramaditya Motwane) for one more. This was a moment where I shoot this guy who is running away and there’s this whole thing happening about shooting unarmed suspects. But of course, you know, he’s killed my friend. It’s easy when I have a gun in my hand to go into a certain mode.
The story is ‘I shouldn’t shoot this guy, he’s unarmed’ and then you know I just can’t help it. And this rage surges through him and he shoots film anyway and then goes there and finishes him off. So to have a story on your face and in your mind while doing action was a growth for me as an actor.
And we were okay with one take and I asked Vikram Motwane, “Can I do it again please? Because this is what I’d like to add to it. And he said, “Yes, of course.” And we did. And it seems to be an image that’s endured.
