Ram Kapoor, who plays a film producer - Shamsher Singh Walia, in the recently released streaming series Jubilee, shared that to essay the part he unleashed the inner Punjabi in him and played it to the gallery because he fully trusted director Vikramaditya Motwane's instincts as the two go long way back, having worked in Motwane's directorial debut Udaan which was released in 2010.
On his transformation journey, Kapoor shared, "For Shamsher Singh Walia, I realised that I must bring that Punjabi inside me out. I must be as Punjabi as I can in terms of body language, with my abuses, my obnoxiousness, everything. And that is what I did, I just enhanced my inner obnoxious side to the absolute maximum".
He further mentioned, "And the reason I could do that is because I trust Vikram tremendously because I worked with him in his very first movie Udaan. So, there was tremendous trust between us. So, I knew that I could go as crazy as I want, because he is there to control if I go overboard. That was my process and that was how I worked on the character of Mr. Walia."

The series based on the Golden Era of Indian cinema packs an ensemble cast of Aditi Rao Hydari, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Kapoor, Wamiqa Gabbi, Sidhant Gupta and Nandish Sandhu.
