Pratik Gandhi who performed the eponymous position stated, “We knew we have been doing a honest job of it. However we might by no means guess it might go this far. My largest cause for accepting the position of Harshad Mehta was director Hansal Mehta. My producers Applause Leisure and Sameer Nair have been godsent. I like taking part in real-life characters. I’ve performed fairly various them on stage together with Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. It’s all the time a problem to painting a real-life character particularly one as a lot within the public area as Harshad Mehta.”
There have been a lot of layers to Harshad Mehta’s character which Pratik acquired interested in. “I like taking part in characters with advanced human traits. Additionally, that is the largest mission that I’ve carried out in my life. All these causes have been greater than sufficient incentive to do the mission.”
Pratik says he did lots of analysis on Harshad Mehta. “I used to be supplied with lots of materials. I additionally did my very own analysis. There have been some movies of Harshad that I studied. There’s additionally an informative interview of Harshad with legendary journalist Pritish Nandy. The script in itself offered an in depth doc on the character. All this, plus a number of discussions with the writers and administrators helped me so much.”
Pratik undertook an entire regime of bodily preparation to play Harshad. “Once I first met director Hansal Mehta he instructed me I’m too lean and skinny to play Harshad Mehta. I needed to acquire 18 kilos earlier than we began capturing. I gorged on all of the Gujarati goodies that I earlier prevented. By the point we began capturing, I had an enormous stomach and lots of fats on my face. And naturally the trademark Harshad Mehta mustache.”
He took a acutely aware determination to not appear to be Harshad. “Wanting just like the real-life character actually makes the actor’s job simpler particularly when it’s somebody as well-known as Harshad Mehta. He liked being within the limelight. One in every of his pictures along with his Lexus remains to be in style. Whereas making the collection on Harshad we took a acutely aware determination that I gained’t attempt to appear to be the true Harshad. Moderately I’d concentrate on his behaviour, perspective, and persona, be it his helplessness initially, confidence, then over-confidence to the extent of letting his vanity and ego get the higher of his judgment. Hansal was clear about not caricaturing Harshad, however moderately imbibing his traits into my persona.”
Being a Gujarati helped Pratik perceive Harshad higher. “It helped me to grasp his thought course of, his desires, a knack for understanding cash issues, the entrepreneurial spirit. And that willpower to be self-employed. That’s a Gujarati trait. Although I need to confess that I come from a household of educationists. Nobody in my household is an entrepreneur.”
