Actor Mudasir Zafar is known for the film My Friend's Dulhania. He was born and brought up in Jammu. Recently another film "Nobel Peace" where he is playing the character of Hayan Mir has been released.
What is your role? How did you get the role?
I am playing Hayan mir. He is the protagonist, a small village guy who works in a tours and travel company. He finds purpose in life using the power of social media under the guidance of prof Shlok played by Hiten Tejwani. His aim is to bring peace in the society specially between the communities.
How was it working with Hiten?
Working with Hiten bhai was an amazing experience and he is such an experienced actor. I remember watching him on screen in Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi in my childhood when my mother used to watch the show. And now getting a chance to share a platform with him was a surreal experience. He is a seasoned actor and when you work with a good actor, it helps your performance. He was very supportive and his understanding of cinema is excellent.
What did you learn from Hiten?
If you as a person are willing to learn, you can learn something from everyone. Hiten bhai loves to interact with everyone on the sets be it a spot boy, light man or anyone else, it creates a very positive vibe on the set, He is calm and cheerful and comes around as a warm personality. The best part was the way he was acknowledging his fans.
Any special preparations for the role?
I did a workshop with the director and co-actors for a couple of weeks before the shoot. Hayan's backstory was given to me so I was clear about his objectives, Stakes and Obstacles. I mean to say his intentions, wants and motivations. I did work on Hayan's voice and accent, his body language, the way he walks. Most important thing was the innocence that reflected through his eyes.
