Interview With The Mountain
Recently in an Interview with Hindustan Times, the actor shared his experience working in Hindi films and said that he is a huge fan of Bollywood and always wanted to work with such big stars of Bollywood.
He is a big fan of Superstar Amitabh Bachchan and told the media that “I had seen Amitabh in movies before but never really recognized him. Black was the first modern movie I saw him in, and wow! I know it did not do too well in cinemas but what a great movie. Very well-received by the critics and rightly so. I think this movie raised international expectations of Hindi films from a mad rush to marry with song and dance erupting out of nowhere to that India can produce very serious dramatic films.”
He also mentioned that Indian actors are very hard working and admires them as they can give everything it takes to play a role. He told the media “The stars of Indian cinema seem to take the job on as more than a job, it seems to me that they try to live as large as the roles they play. They sing and dance, do their own stunt work, they really take it upon themselves to work as hard as they possibly can at being the role model they pretend to be onscreen. And all whom I have met are absolute gentlemen in the traditional English sense. It really has been a pleasure to work with everyone I have so far met, and I must admit I have learned and do try to emulate them in this way.”
