Saqib Saleem, who is known for his on-screen dynamism is now thrilled to play Shiv Prakash Shukla for his upcoming ZEE5 Original Rangbaaz. His role in the series is of a fearsome gangster whose life eventually takes a new curve, making the narrative appear even more gripping.
To our surprise, the actor wasn’t just juggling with the dialect game but the mental transformation that kept him on his toes for months. Owing to the script, he also underwent extensive training sessions much before the schedule kicked-off to get into the skin of the character.
Saqib pushed his limits to understand and live Shiv’s role as he was immensely intrigued by the character. Talking about the same in length the actor added,“Playing Shiv Prakash wasn’t easy for me. There was a tutor on the sets who used to monitor my dialect at every shot and those lengthy hours of dialogue rehearsals, were quite thrilling. I’m glad that everybody is liking the trailer and I hope they shower the same love when the show arrives. Fingers crossed!”
Watch Saqib aka Shiv Prakash Shukla in his brave and valent avatar in ZEE5’s original series Rangbaaz, premiering on 22nd December.
