Actor Mohit Abrol, who is part of Anil V Kumar’s Ratri Ke Yatri 2, says that the opportunity of working with the latter was what got him on board in the first place. The actor adds that he also loved the storyline and the rest of the team.
“I have known Anil Sir for a long time now and he wanted me to be a part of Ratri Ke Yatri 2. I was very excited when I heard the script and I jumped on board because it is a brilliant story and my co-stars are great, Rashami Desai and Abigail Pandey,” he says.
He adds, “It has always been great working with Anil sir. We worked seven years back for a Balaji Telefilms show. We shared a very good rapport, it’s fun working with him, the energy that he brings on set is great, it’s amazing. I really love him and it’s always great to work with him. It was great working with Abigail Pandey, Rashami Desai. The way we were all comfortable with each other on sets was lovely.”
Talking about the content of the show. “Mostly the stories on red light areas they always grab attention, it’s still a taboo in our society, the sex trade and everything. By the way it’s the oldest profession in the world but still it’s a taboo in society. Whatever we don’t accept socially will always attract attention.”
Mohit took some time to prepare for her character. “The preparation I did for the role was mostly to google the details about how the red-light areas work. My character was basically a corporate guy who goes to red light areas to satisfy himself. It took me a week to get into the character,” he says.
While she loves action roles, Nirisha also says that at this point in her career, she is only looking for roles which are meaty. “Anything that gets me to do action, I would love to do it. Hopefully, I get my chances in films soon as well. But I love being part of OTT and TV too as long as I get to perform action roles since I am a martial arts student,” she says, adding, “What I truly enjoy is when I am the centre of the story. I can no longer take on secondary characters anymore. I have hated every minute of it. So, I only aim and enjoy doing primary roles. It doesn’t matter if it's TV or OTT, as long as I get to perform and given enough screen space and importance, I enjoy everything.”
