If the response in which he is receiving from his role in ‘Sarbjit’ (2016) is anything to go by, then Randeep Hooda is definitely flying high. However, the actor doesn’t seem to agree when people say it’s his best role yet, and feels he has a long way to go for that to happen.
“Of course, it (playing Sarabjit on screen) has been my most Herculean task. I am glad people are appreciating it. But as an artiste, I would say that my best role is yet to come,”��NDTV��reported the actor stating.
The Omung Kumar directorial, had Hooda play the Punjabi farmer Sarabjit Singh who had accidentally stumbled over the Pakistan borders, where he was accused and convicted for by an Indian spy. The actor went through vigorous changes in order to portray the role perfectly. Talking about what he loves most from his job, Hooda expressed, “I like the process of preparation and rehearsal more than executing and watching it. That is the real life experience, rest is just execution.”
“My aim in life is not just to see myself on screen or get awards or to be featured in magazines. I am not too materialistic either. It is the life experience I get by involving myself in somebody else’s point of view, situation and life, and understanding another human being,” he added.
Hooda has always been marked as an under-rated actor. However, the actor has expressed that he just gets on with what he needs to do, and looks upon himself to find things he can improve. “One never knows if one has truly succeeded. Larger opinion of people has to be taken into consideration. Personally, I feel that I could have done this (role) better or something could be changed,” he said.
Currently showing on the big screen, ‘Sarbjit’ sees Hooda share the screen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Richa Chadda.
