I used to be feeling like how I used to be once I was making my debut. I did have (some) hassle with it. There are two issues: One, you’re coming again into the world of ‘Inside Edge’ after some time. You’re anticipated to remain true to Vikrant Dhawan’s grain, the character that you simply performed in Season 1 and Season 2 and are anticipated to hold that fact in Season 3.”
He lauds the present author for giving the actors a stable supply materials to construct upon, “However the writers that we now have on ‘Inside Edge’ are phenomenal. In every season there was a brand new problem the place they’d create a complete new arc and a complete completely different evolution of that character.”
He provides, “On this season, there’s a complete completely different graph to Vikrant Dhawan. So regardless that it’s the identical character, you must make it completely different and but make it seem like it has continuity. In order that to me was an incredible problem and fortunately I might pull it off however whereas we had been capturing for the preliminary few days I used to be fairly nervous.”
Commenting on how the prosthetic scars of Vikrant helped him ship a calculated efficiency, Vivek says, “On this season, you see Vikrant pre the scar and Vikrant put up the scar. So that you see the entire journey. After I completed my strategy of stepping into the character I might lie again and the prosthetics staff would make a scar on my face.”
He continues, “I purposely wouldn’t see whereas it (the scar) was being made. However, the minute they made the scar, I’d open my eyes, contact the scar and I’d instantly remodel to Vikrant Dhawan, who has flown to the highest, crashed to the underside and is now rising again. I’d contact the scar, and it served as a reminder to gas his vengeance.”

However there’s already a distinct segment viewers which is your actual viewers at this level and it’s a really discerning viewers, which is watching ‘Breaking Dangerous’, ‘Fargo’, ‘Sport of Thrones’ and so on. You possibly can’t irk that viewers as a result of that’s the one viewers that you’ve got.”
“On the similar time you must entice theatrical audiences and inform them, ‘Why don’t you pattern this and take a look at?’ So, it was a tightrope stroll that we needed to do as actors, writers, administrators and creators. Now that we’re previous that stage, we will experiment and push the boundaries,” Vivek indicators off.
