Actors Angad Bedi and Kirti Kulhari are bagging praises for their latest release, The List. The film was released on Amazon miniTV. While the audience is showering love on the film, Angad Bedi and Kirti Kulhari opened up about what it takes to portray a robot on the screen.
Angad Bedi talks about his character in the Kirti Kulhari starrer short film The List: “Acting like robots wasn’t easy for me”
“This was a different experience, there were moments where Gaurav Dave (the director) would tell us thoda aur dead dikho, thoda aur emotion kam karo, abhi bhi kuch lag raha hai, ussko bhi hata do. So we were going in the opposite direction. This challenge was really something that I enjoyed because it was different from the usual ‘yeh emotion chahiye, woh emotion chahiye.’”
The Four More Shots Please actress mentioned, “In my own head, I kept pushing and trying to get it right because it matters to me. Baaki toh kaafi majja aaya yaar, kuch dialogues nahi hai, bas chehre se emote karna hai.. It was a great change.”
“Acting like robots for me isn’t easy. Imagine on camera, the filmmaker tells you that this is how you’re supposed to be for 18 mins. It's the toughest thing to do and then you have to project certain emotions while you act all robotic. There is a very fine line that you have to maintain for such a multi-layered character.”
Speaking of his experience portraying a character in this film, Angad said “I think because this role was so new to me, it became more challenging because I am a very energetic person and to have such stoic expressions is a task I thought was out of my league. Of course, working with Kirti and taking workshops for 5 days helped me a lot. I honestly didn’t think I would be able to pull this character off.”
Continuing further, he added, “Every actor has certain advantages and disadvantages and yes it is good to challenge yourself but at the same time, it is also very important to know what you can do and what your capacity or capability is.”
Written and directed by Gaurav Dave, The List is now streaming for free on Amazon miniTV within the Amazon Shopping App and on Fire TV, as part of the Mini Movie Festival.
