Saurabh Sachdeva on playing flamboyant producer in Voot’s ‘Ranjish Hi Sahi’

Actor and acting coach Saurabh Sachdeva — best known for playing Suleiman Isa in ‘Sacred Games’ 1 and 2 and his work in Bejoy Nambiar’s ‘Taish’, films like ‘Manmarziyaan’, ‘Laal Kaptaan’, ZEE5’s ‘Raat Baaki Hai’, who has coached many actors in the industry is currently garnering praises for his role of producer Jagmohan in Voot’s ‘Ranjish Hi Sahi’, created by Mahesh Bhatt.

The actor gets candid about his role and working experience in the show. Talking about his role he says, “I didn’t have any references and my director Pushpdeep told me that we are creating a persona who is a producer of that time so you can bring your own spice to it. Whilst reading the lines, I felt that he is a rich, flamboyant along with the colourful costumes I got clear image about the role and I initiated playing all out.”

Sharing about creating the 70s era, he says,”Definitely, I didn’t restrict myself to make realistic of it but I made sure to deliver a bit over the top and louder (in a right language) than other characters. That is what I took the liberty for and essayed Jagmohan. Also my director Pushpdeep liked it saying that it’s contrasting with the other characters which is outputting good. This was something new from what I have done in my previous work.”

He further adds, “It’s all about the costume and set which recreated the 70s world, giving all the vibes indulging in that world. I didn’t do any research, unlike other projects I did the major work on set for this show. It was more of impulsive approach to this character and not very intellectual.”

Sharing about his working experience in the series, he says, “They all were very open to receive and my director was amazingly energetic and positive. Also Amala did a great job and she provided me a comfortable space. She was friendly to me which helped to build up the scenes with her.”

Recalling the most memorable scene from the set he says, “There was a party scene where I was a little conscious on how to pull this off. Then I went on the stage and took the mike to deflate the protagonist. I really enjoyed that moment because I didn’t think that I would pull off so well because I’m quite shy on stage. Definitely one moment where I was on the stage and giving performance and director was happy with my performance and told me to keep doing.”
