‘Tanu Weds Manu’ Actor, Deepak Dobriyal On Changing Scenario For Character Troupers
Deepak Dobriyal is an astounding Bollywood actor, recognized for his performances in movies like ‘Hindi Medium’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. In a recent conversation with IANS, Deepak put forth his views about the increasing respect for character actors. He also highlighted that filmmakers too are now paying required attention and writing out substantial roles for them.
“I think a character actor is not a derogatory term anymore, unlike earlier days. Thankfully, story writers are sensibly writing characters for people like us that play an equally important part in the narration. This is a good thing. In fact, I think the whole story telling style has changed”, Dobriyal told IANS. “I had an image of a serious actor in theatre, whereas in the film industry, I am known mainly for comedy roles. Isn’t it funny? It’s not that socio-political changes don’t affect me, but I do not air my opinion on things. Rather as an artist, I express things through my art”, he added.
Further in the conversation, Deepak said, “I know people tag us as a character actor, but tell me aren’t all heroes playing ‘characters’ on screen? If you look at a film from a performer’s point of view, we all are putting equal effort and dedication”. Deepak will next be seen ‘Kaalaakaandi’, starring Saif Ali Khan and ‘Lucknow Central’ featuring Farhan Akhtar in the lead.
