Tumbbad actor Sohum Shah has been grabbing the headlines lately for his outstanding performance in the much acclaimed series Maharani. The versatile actor who played the role of a politician for the first time in Maharani has now revealed the secret behind cracking the right psychology of his character.
While speaking to leading a portal, Sohum shared:
"The psychology is very intuitive. You cannot deconstruct or study it. It’s inside you, what you’ve experienced in life. Bheema must’ve seen there’s lack of equality around and people belonging to a certain caste don’t get to express themselves. That gap is common in India. I’ve seen it since I also belong to a humble background. Grabbing such nuances was easier for me.
When you see characters closely in life, they become easier to portray, and you should avoid doing much preparation for them. Subhash Kapoor’s being on set helped me to get the language right and the situation absolutely spot on."
While the actor has once again shown his versatility with his exemplary performance in the series, Sohum had also transformed physically by gaining 10 kgs and growing a moustache to give his character an authentic look.
On the work front, Sohum will be next seen in Excel Entertainment's Fallen, directed by Reema Kagti. The actor will be playing the role of a cop for the first time in the series.
