His physique of labor has included an antagonist (in Mardaani), a school pupil (Chhichhore) and a person saved by his girlfriend (Looop Lapeta).
Ask him what made him keep away, and he solutions that he has all the time obtained provides for the masala movie hero. “There have been offers in the past, and there continue to be. But it depends on the kind of scripts one wants to do at the moment. I want disruptive content, something that changes what the notion of storytelling is. Of course, in time if there is a different story which demands for a character or the hero to be larger than life in order for the story to be told better, I will do,” says the 35-year-old.
He cites the instance of his net present Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen. Bhasin explains, “Chhichhore, Mardaani all had characters mounted on a certain scale, they had an entry shot, costumes, dialogues, larger than life in the way they were presented. When I read the script of Yeh Kaali… I had a question mark. I was playing a small town boy belonging to a humble family. That was a challenge ‘will I be able to do that?’”

The possibilities are just dizzying… the kind of stories that can be told. You can be a lead star in films and also the lead of an OTT show, it’s a great time,” Bhasin indicators off.
