While most would bounce on the alternative of auditioning for a Karan Johar manufacturing, Viraj Ghelani dilly-dallied for a month. “I had confronted so many rejections in my preliminary years that I used to be sure I’d be rejected by Dharma Productions too. But I finally did [a screen test],” says the actor, who performs Bhumi Pednekar’s boyfriend Baldev Chaddha in Govinda Naam Mera.
Ghelani could also be a YouTube content material creator, however performing is a special ball recreation. Naturally, he was nervous earlier than giving his first shot. He credit director Shashank Khaitan for addressing his fears, which enabled him to ship a one-take shot. “Shashank defined to me that he’s making a film [that is] on a a lot greater scale than my YouTube movies. So if he discovered something missing in my efficiency, he wouldn’t hesitate to ask for a retake. He patiently cleared my doubts and boosted my confidence.”
While his character is at loggerheads with Vicky Kaushal’s protagonist within the crime comedy, they bonded simply off display. “During breaks, Vicky and I might chat about our journeys, in his vainness van.”
