It was a quirky role and I feel doing a completely mad character like that was extremely challenging. The way I walked, I talked, my posture, my accent, my tone in that film, everything was so unusual for me and that was a big challenge. I did 8 by 10 Tasveer with Nagesh Kukunoor. The film tanked at the box office, but I enjoyed doing it. I loved doing Dhamaal too. It was loud and over-the-top, but I enjoyed working in that film. Click here to read more
