Hotstar Specials series brings together a power-pair – Anil Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur in never seen before characters. It’s gripping, it’s layered, it’s complex…it’s everything one can expect in a thrilling package. Created and directed by Sandeep Modi and co-directed by Priyanka Ghosh, the series is produced by The Ink Factory and Banijay Asia and will release soon on Disney+ Hotstar.
Adapting a series is never easy. While shooting for the Indian adaptation of the series, the actors, crew and Director Sandeep Modi watched the original series to get a deeper understanding of the plot, theme and characters. Well, guess who decided not to watch the original and adapt to any tips and tricks from it? Supremely talented and versatile actor, Tillotama Shome who essays a unique and gripping character in the series, decided to skip watching the original and give her own touch to the character. Here’s what the incredible actor had to say.
Talking about not watching the original series, Tillotama Shome said, “Olivia Colman is simply fantastic, starting from her early work like Tyrannosaurus. I am a massive fan. It would be impossible to unsee what she has done. Besides, India has its own rhythm, especially in the characterization of someone who works for the government. So, I chose to just stick to the script and bring her alive. And hope and pray that Olivia Colman (if she watches it), does not hate me for it.”
