Producer-writer-director Taher Ali Baig is all set with his brand-new short film Fitrat, starring Sudhanshu Pandey and Rajit Kapur. Throwing more light on his role of Vishnu. Rajit Kapur gets candid on playing Vishnu.
Rajit says, “It’s all about our fixed notions and prejudices which we have set on our daily life. We don’t think much of other options. Vishnu is an ordinary guy in extraordinary circumstances. It’s perceived differently. I have a great rapport with both Sudhanshu Pandey and Taher Ali Baig who are light-minded people. The story of Fitrat is great. There was no reason for not doing this one. Sudhanshu is like a family as I know him for the last 20 years.”
Speaking about his working experience with Taher, Rajit says, “He is an open-minded director who allows his actor to go on their own. As an actor, I got the opportunity to explore. That’s the good quality of a director.” Commenting on his prep work for any role Rajit says, “Every character is different and so is the prep work for the role. There is no fixed rule.”
Rajit Kapur gets candid on playing Vishnu:
For the last few years, short films have been getting good decent viewers. Rajit also echoed the same and adds, “Twenty-five years back, when I used to talk about short films, there was no support, and people used to think I am mad. But for the last 2 years, there has been a great response to short films, and everyone wants to make them. It’s a wonderful format in which messages can be portrayed easily and also for the new director this is a brilliant trial as this can be good for confidence building. Sometimes some subjects cannot be made into full-fledged feature films then the short films format works best. Also, the audience has a lesser attention span now. So, it’s better for them as well.”
Rajit, who is known for his versatility, and one of the best actors in the industry says that consistency of performance is a very important aspect of an actor. And one of his favorite actresses is Aruna Irani. He adds,” To me, consistency of performance is something which I always appreciate. To me, Aruna Irani is one of the most versatile actors. We have people who started her career at the age of 5 and 70 plus also she is acting. Do we have the guts to acknowledge that?”
