Tahir Raj Bhasin became well known from ‘Mardaani’ (2014), and since then he has decided to only work on movies for the big screen for now. He believes that this entertainment medium is the one where the audience is totally involved.
According to Times of India, the actor stated, “My focus are only films. There is something special about films as when it is being played in a dark theatre, the audience is watching only you. Whereas in TV there are a lot distraction. Film is a medium where the audience gives you 100 per cent.”
The actor became well known with Rani Mukerji and now can be seen along side John Abraham in ‘Force 2’ (2016). He continued, “I have always believed that the choice of your second film is as important as you first film. People have recognised me. The process of making the film has paid off for me and the entire team.”
He tends to play darker roles and prefers it this way, “It feels great to be part of an emerging trend of playing anti-heroes. Dark is the new cool. I can be cast in a range of parts, but at the moment I am really enjoying this genre as it gives you depth. It is a challenge to play such parts.”
Working with Abraham and Mukerji he has been benefiting from working with senior artistes, “I like to spend time with senior actors before going on set to break the ice. On set, I just look at them as co-actors. The credit also goes to senior actors as they treat me equal. The confidence to perform in front of them comes from the fact that you overlook your persona and just do your job. It actually ups my game,” he commented.
