Actor Bhupendra Jadawat, a National School of Drama graduate who made his debut through Netflix series ‘Class of 83’ feels grateful on getting praises for his debut role Shukla. It is produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and directed by Atul Sabharwal.
On talking about playing Shukla, he says, “Playing a cop is quite tricky. So I bagged this role after rounds and rounds of audition by casting director Abhimanyu Ray sir. So when I came to know that Shah Rukh Khan is producing it and it will be streaming on Netflix, it became larger than life project for me. We were been trained for 2 months for getting into the character of a police officer. Since its a period film, so we had to prepare ourselves keeping that era in mind. I feel very fortunate on getting such a great response in my debut film which I never imagined.”
On talking about his rapport with Bobby Deol, he says, “It was a wonderful experience. Being a 90s kid, I’m a very big fan of his. First time when I saw him I was very excited. But he is very humble, giving and down to earth and makes his costars comfortable. We used to talk a lot on sets and he helped us a lot. He never made us feel he is a star. There’s a saying ‘Bada Aadmi woh hai jo pass mein baithe insaan ko chota nahi hone deta’ – that’s Bobby Sir.”
