Learn from Bachchan Sir, Reach Any Stage Dedication to Work Should Not Be Less: Rakulpreet
How did you prepare for your role?
My character is a co-pilot. Ajay Sir and I took 4-5 days of cockpit training for this so that we can find out which buttons are on the panel because only then our body language will be correct. Apart from this, a captain also used to live on our set but when you wear a uniform, that confidence comes to you automatically.
What was it like working with Amitabh Bachchan? Describe any of their qualities.
For me, working with Amitabh is like a dream come true. When someone comes in the industry, his dream is to meet Bachchan once. After that, when he starts getting work, his dream is to get a chance to work with Bachchan. I would like to point out that Bachchan still has a lot of dedication to work. They arrive on set early, they don’t go in the van, they keep rehearsing. Let me tell you a story. We had a 21-page scene to collect. When Bachchan came, he remembered all the dialogues. I don’t think any other actor would be so ready. They are never in a hurry to go home. I have learned from them that you can reach any stage but your dedication towards work should not be less.
You have already worked with Ajay Devgn. What was his experience as a director in this film?
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me, Looks like Al that sounds crap to me. All the cameras did the same check. ‘Runway’ is very difficult to shoot. Ajay Sir loves challenges.
In which films will we be able to see you next?
I have a lot of films coming up, in which I have a variety of characters. Ayushman Khurana has a film ‘Doctor Ji’ in which I am in the role of a doctor. There is also Ajay Devgn and Siddharth Malhotra’s ‘Thank God’. There is also a movie called ‘Chhatri Wali’ in which I became a condom tester.
It is every director’s dream to direct Mr. Bachchan in his film: Ajay Devgn
What’s going to be special about the film?
The film manages to entertain as well as inform. It has a lot of drama, thrill and suspense. This is a very different kind of film.
Did you know about this incident before making the film?
No, I didn’t know that before. When you watch the movie you will know how interesting it is.
How was directing Amitabh Bachchan?
It is every director’s dream to direct Mr. Bachchan in his film. It was great working with them. You expect the front man to give you 100 percent but Mr. Bachchan gives 150 percent.
From the trailer, this movie looks like Hollywood level. Set, effects How did you achieve everything?
When people say that our films are not made like them (Hollywood) then they should also think that those films are made with a budget of 1000 crores and we make 100 crores. We have many limitations but we have a lot of talent. There are minds that we can all do within our budget. It is easy to compare with them but it is difficult to get there by staying in your circle but it is fun.
You’re an actor, director, producer, everything, what else do you want to do?
Don’t know … Yes, there is still a lot to do. The effort is to do a good job, no matter what the department.
How much has the meaning of films changed for you today at this stage?
No actor is ever asked in Hollywood why you played a small role but this is what happens here. I think if your character is small and gives full support to the film then you should. I’ve always done what I love. As an actor, you should never do the same thing, otherwise you get stuck in the same role. It is important to do different things.
As a director, what do you think? T. T. What has changed in the Karan industry?
. T. T. With the advent of change, the exposure of our audience has increased significantly. Now people like to watch different types of movies in every language. You have to understand that whether it is Southern films or Punjabi films, they all belong to India. The change is that O.P. T. T. The reasons are now easily seen by all.
