Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s upcoming streaming series Bambai Meri Jaan’s trailer was recently unveiled. The series stars Saurabh Sachdeva, Kay Kay Menon, Avinash Tiwary, Kritika Kamra and Amyra Dastur.
Sachdeva who essays the character of mafia don Haji Maqbool spoke about his role in the show, "I was genuinely enthused by the role due to the character's captivating trajectory. His delusions of grandeur and belief in his absolute control make for a compelling narrative. Witnessing the transformation and evolution of his persona promises to be an exhilarating experience."
He continued, "It is fascinating to observe the disintegration of his ego and the subsequent redirection of his path. He prioritises solely professional connections, disregarding any emotional entanglements. The character's unwavering self-reliance adds to his commanding presence. Undoubtedly, it is a role that exudes power and authority."
The actor shared that he initially faced challenges with his role because director Shujaat Saudagar is a task master and their visions didn't align. However, the lockdown provided them with an opportunity to dedicate time towards refining the character.
He said, "When we resumed filming, we found ourselves in sync with each other's energy levels. From the beginning, my director and I have had a complex yet engaging relationship that added a dynamic element to our collaboration."
Describing his working experience with his co actors in the series, he stated, "Kay Kay sir is widely recognised as an exceptional actor, renowned for his outstanding performances. Having known Avinash for a considerable period since his time as my student in 2015, I have witnessed his remarkable journey unfold. He has emerged as a highly skilled actor, garnering immense praise."
"Throughout our shared scenes, where our characters engage in intense face-to-face interactions, Avinash consistently displayed confidence and never appeared intimidated by the fact that I was his teacher. His portrayal was flawless, effectively complementing my character. The dynamic between us displayed a strong sense of power dynamics," he added.
Bambai Meri Jaan will drop on Prime Video on September 14.
