Amol Parashar in Sardar Udham

Actor Amol Parashar might have been on the tube for several years but it has only been a few characters that he continues to be remembered for. And now, he might have only had a small role to portray in the recently released and acclaimed film, Sardar Udham playing Bhagat Singh but he has received immense love and appreciation for the same.

While Vicky Kaushal played the titular role, Parashar's short but impactful role of Bhagat Singh achieved immense appreciation.

Talking about the response to his character in an interview with ETimes, Parashar said, "People have loved the film and the way Shoojit (Sircar) sir has perfectly moulded it in a unique way. For me, it was always going to be a special appearance, in terms of screen time, as the story focused on Udham’s story. But it has been loved by so many people! It’s overwhelming to be a part of a film that leaves such an impact. Being noticed in such a great film with such a great performance by Vicky is itself an achievement; I would pat myself on the back."

Talking about his preparation for the role, Parashar said, "When you have a great team, the work gets divided. We had a very clear vision of what we were trying to show. I think the only thing we required was the learning part about these people. The kind of research material the team had with my personal work, I realised that they are much more than what we think we know about them. This opened up my ideas and mind about these legends from India’s modern history. Getting down to their thoughts is different because we have also formed our ideas about them from books, stories, and more."

He ended with saying how one needs to connect with the character, "You need to connect and this is why reading about them helps. Like I found out he used to write a lot anonymously."
