Deepak Dobriyal’s journey has been a slow and steady one in Hindi cinema, but every role the star has essayed has managed to grab attention. His upcoming black comedy, ‘Kaalakaandi,’ is set for release soon and he took some time out to reflect his journey.
In a recent interview he was asked about whether his theatre background, like Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has helped his opportunities. He said, according to TOI, “I used to feel that way when I wasn’t getting work initially. Like they say, empty vessels make the most noise. But, now I don’t feel that way anymore. I went through a phase when I felt bad that many of my friends who I have known from my theatre days, and who are now working in big films, aren’t helping me.”
He also touched on any insecurities he may have, “Even though I have been streotyped as a comic actor, I don’t let that affect me. I am not insecure as a person and I try not to fall prey to the notions harboured by people about me. When I made inroads into films, I wanted people to like me for the characters I essayed on screen and that’s exactly how it has panned out.”
He talked about the language in the promos for this upcoming movie, ‘Kaalakaandi’. He said, “Films have the power to influence. Many people in our country confuse creative freedom and liberties taken by a filmmaker to create the world that they intend to as the real thing. But, our film is an adult one and what has been done as a form of expression should be allowed to thrive.”
‘Kaalakaandi’ releases later this month.
