Actor Akshay Oberoi is gearing up for his next project ‘Gaslight’, but before that, he took to reading whodunit novels as he shot for two back-to-back murder mysteries. The actor plays a suspect in the film, which also stars Sara Ali Khan and Vikrant Massey.
He said: “Coming from theatre background, for me the basic form of preparation for any kind of role is to get into the mood for it. While I was shooting for two of the suspense thrillers, I read many whodunit murder mystery novels. Those books gave me everything.”
“The thrills, the chase, and I got the perspective of both the victim and the murderer. And since I have been an avid reader, it was a bonus for me that I was having fun.
‘Gaslight’ will have Sara Ali Khan and Vikrant Massey in the lead. The story is about how a married woman’s life spirals to a breaking point, and she suspects certain people close to her are the reason behind this.
