In a conversation with IANS, Randeep Hooda said that shooting in real location helps the actors make their performance believable for their audience. The actor also said that he loved working with local actors from the shooting location which helped him understand his own character in the streaming series. Hooda is currently shooting for his streaming series Cat.
"Shooting in real locations enhances the performance because you spend the majority of time in the universe where your content is set. Going to sets for the shoot, being there in the moment or coming back from the shoot, you are surrounded by a certain geography, the climate, the cultural setting of the people, the local language or the diction people use there -- all these things help you to get into a space and focus your thoughts inline with the traits of your character," Hooda said.
The actor further adds, "Like for Cat too, a lot of local actors have been cast in supporting roles. It's so interesting to jam with those actors on the screen and to feed off their energy. It greatly helped me to get a better understanding of my character in the series."
Hooda is best known for his performance in Sarbjit (2016), and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster (2011)
Directed by Balwinder Singh Janjua, Cat is a crime thriller set against the backdrop of Punjab’s remote areas and tells the story of an innocent man, who is thrown into a deep, drug trafficking conspiracy between gang lords, cops and political powers. Cat will stream on Netflix from December 9 onwards.
