Bollywood actor Aparshakti Khurana has taken audiences by surprise after a fine act in his latest series Jubilee on Prime Video. With his latest performance, Aparshakti has showcased Binod’s journey - starting off as a worker in the studio to climbing the ladder to stardom as Madan Kumar.
Aparshakti Khurana opens up on his Jubilee character Binod; says, “There is a weird real-life connection between me and my character”
Talking about his character in Jubilee, Aparshakti said, “There is a weird real-life connection between me and my character, Binod. I started my career as a costume designer at the age of 21-22 but I always wanted to switch careers and work on TV as a host. So, I joined a television channel as a costume stylist and worked my way through and landed an audition as a TV host for a show. Luckily, I was selected for the same and my journey started from there. And in Jubilee, too, I start my career as an employee at Srikant Roy’s (Prosenjit Chatterjee) studio where I work as an assistant but secretly aspire to be an actor. So that little connection was a motivation to work on this role better. That's what worked for me.”
The Amazon Original series which is set parallel to the evolution of both India and the Hindi film industry is a layered drama, interwoven with multiple characters - a studio boss, his movie-star wife, a trusted aide, a rising star, a nautch girl, and a refugee - and their dreams and ambitions. It features the Bumba Da aka Bengal cinema’s superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee as studio head, Srikant Roy, of the illustrious Roy Talkies.
Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Created by Soumik Sen and Vikramaditya Motwane, Jubilee has been produced by Andolan Films in association with Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Studios. Apart from Aparshakti Khurana, it packs an ensemble cast of Aditi Rao Hydari, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Ram Kappor, Wamiqa Gabbi, Sidhant Gupta and Nandish Sandhu. Part One (episodes one to five) of Jubilee is streaming now while Part Two (episodes six to ten) will release on April 14.
