Actor Raj Arjun spills beans on playing orthodox, narrow minded father in most applauded short film Natkhat
On playing a narrow-minded father he says, "I am playing Ravindra, who is a rude, narrow-minded, orthodox and follows what he has seen in his times and is reluctant to adapt or change. He is just one of those men you wouldn't like to be around!"
Sharing his views on the subject of the film he revealed, "It's about the consequences of your actions, just like the saying 'you reap what you sow'. When people say that patriarchy doesn't exist anymore I feel like that's not true because it does, and we need to work harder on achieving and living in a society where equality is not just the dream but the reality."
Adding about his working experience with Vidya Balan he states,"It was a great experience, she is really genuine and I've known her since secret superstar so it was easy for us to get along."
On sharing about his learnings from the film he continues, "I wouldn't say I have learned something specific. As in my opinion, you learn from the things, the experiences that you've had in life. And learning from movies is subconscious. It's not in your control and you don't realize it."
Two of his other short films called Pilibhit and The Minituarist of Junagarh are traveling around the world in different festivals and garnering a lot of appreciation.
