Chandan K Anand who is currently seen in negative role in ‘Barrister Babu’ on Colors and also had a part in ‘Gunjan Saxena – The Kargil Girl’ playing a Commanding Officer in the Indian Air Force. Previously, he was seen in ‘The Body’, Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and ‘Rangbaaz’.
On his role in the film, he says, “I’m essaying Airforce Commanding Officer in the Training Camp where Janhvi’s training session starts with her dream to be a fighter pilot as I was offered that part in the song. It’s a really short part but the kind of response I am getting is overwhelming. It proves there are no small and big roles. It’s the impact an actor can portray in playing a character. To be a part of the song where I am training the protagonist Gunjan Saxena, where I was offered few lines but these were enough for me to portray the strength of the officer. Plus the costumes and Amit Trivedi’s voice was icing on the cake.”
Talking about his experience with Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi, he adds, “Fantastic! Obviously you can’t take away the thought she is legendary Sridevi’s daughter but yes these young talents are hardworking professionals and evolving their craft as actors. It was pleasure to see her portraying such a strong character. It was a fun shoot with her. And Pankaj Tripathi is a dear friend from Delhi theatre. Ee have known each other from more than two decades now. He is a great star now and I am so happy for his success and still he has kept his humility intact. He gave so much love on sets, out of his busy schedule he managed to take out time for dinner with me, we chatted about our good old theatre days. I wish great success to this unique craftman Tripathi Ji.”
