Ek Deewana Tha latest news – Namik talks about the challenges involved in playing a ghost
Talented and handsome actor Namik Paul is excited about playing lead role of Shiv who is a ghost in Sony TV’ recently launched show Ek Deewana Tha ((LSD Films). The show also features Vikram Singh Chahuan and Donal Bisht in lead roles as Vyom and Sharanya.
Recently in an interview, Namik spoke about the challenges of his character. He shared “Wearing those huge red contact lenses is a bit troublesome, but it is fine. Also the challenge for me is to stay silent, as my character is not uttering a word, which again is a bit tough. As an actor, you like mouthing longish dialogues. The challenge is to show all the emotions through my eyes and body language as there is no dialogue delivery. I also need to present him differently to prevent monotony setting in the absence of dialogues. But rest assured he will talk a lot down the road.”
Namik also shared that he is lucky for he really has got a chance to do something different. “Normally you end up only enacting shades of the rich arrogant dude. One of the main reasons for saying yes to this project is the twist in the tale,” he added.
He further stated that the online audiences is getting impatient and want all the layers to be unfolded soon. “But they need to understand that thriller genre needs time for all the elements to unfold and how can one tell a daily soap story in just three weeks. Having said that reading those bizarre theories which some are writing on Twitter and Insta means we are beginning to make a mark.”
Talking about drop in TRP ratings of the show, he said “KBC effect is over (first week 1.1); but we are confident that the numbers will rise as we have a great story to tell and you have not seen anything yet.”
About his equation with co-stars Vikram and Donal, Namik says, “Vikram (Singh Chauhan) is a big prankster; he sometimes ties my shoe laces while I am asleep. Donal (Bisht) is really kicked about her first lead role; her excitement reminds me of my debut lead show Ek Duje Ke Vaaste.”
