Actor Ashutosh Rana is a force to reckon with, he has played characters ranging from deranged psychotic killer to loveable policemen, though father in law, lawyer and what not, with each film he has gone better and better and now credits the trust and appreciation of filmmakers in him to bring out so many different and varied characters.
Talking about his character portrayal, Ashutosh Rana said, “First of all, I’d like thank all my directors, who trust in me. And once you get appreciation and trust, as an actor from your director than performance comes automatically”
“One more thing I have tried to incorporate as an actor, that I should never be seen trying to perform something, I should be been behaving as my character. So when you’re performing a character and when you’re behaving a character, both impact the audience differently. I try to emerge myself into the character, an actor is like water in container, and he automatically takes the shape of mould you put him in”
Ashutosh Rana has done films in Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Kannada and Tamil languages, talking about working in so many films from so many different languages, the actor quips that language might be different but expression remains the same.
He said, “Film has its own language, and it is language of expression and emotion. I have done a lot of different language film, so as a medium I don’t see any difference, language may be different but it doesn’t mean the medium is different as well”
Bollywood is buzzing with biopics’ especially based on political figures and Ashutosh Rana is open to the idea of the biopic.
He said, “I think I am influenced by Swami Vivekananda a lot, so I got a chance to do a biopic, I would certainly portray his character on-screen. I would love to do Sri Ramakrishna Paramhans biopic or Neta Ji Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekar Azad, and I may not look like Gandhi, but I would love do his biopic as well”
2018 has been remarkable for Ashutosh Rana as his movies like Mulk, Dhadak, and Simmba, all fared well at the box-office and now the actor shares a little sneak-peek into his future endeavors.
He added, “I am doing a web-series right now, which is based on Maharaja Chhatrasal Bundela, I am quite open to web-series but my only concern is that the character should be strong and central”
