When asked Shakktii about his character he said, "I enact the role of a small town young boy who dreams to be an actor and while living the life of a struggler he is pushed into the dark lanes of male prostitution and sooner he endures it as a source of income to support his family."
Also, Shakktii who was ignorant even about the existence of male prostitution prevailing in society had to actually meet people pursuing this act to enhance his character. He commented, "Due to my ignorance about the issue I was confronting difficulties in enacting the emotional side of the character and so we decided to meet them in person. The fact about them which struck me very strongly was that their monetary need for livelihood had actually killed the guilt within them; even then they didn't show off even a inch of it on their face."
Shakktii also asserted that, "When I was approached for the role I was very skeptical about doing it. But after talking up with the director and understanding the seriousness of the issue I accepted the offer. And now I feel privileged to do a debut in Bollywood with such a strong story and character."
Shakktii who sees his character as the only fun element in such a serious issue based movie, is pursuing Numerology and Tarot Card reading professionally. He has also used his study for many Bollywood and Television actors whose names he refused to disclose as a rule of Numerology.
In fact he himself has changed the spell of his name 'Shakti' to 'Shakktii' and feels satisfied to welcome lot of positivity and prosperity in his life.
We wish him best of luck for the success of his movie which is to be released this summer.
