Iqbal Azad on playing a villain in Vidrohi

Iqbal Azad essays the role of Charan Patnaik in recently launched show Vidrohi.

It is a negative character and the actor is enjoying playing the part.

Iqbal says, “This character was there in the 1800 when the first revolution of India against the East India Company happened. And Vidrohi shows this character as a Deshdrohi and ‘double standard’ person, who was with the British and was supplying all information about the Odisha King. I don’t relate to my character. But this is an interesting role and I have never played this kind of character before in my acting career. There are different kinds of dialogues, and punctuations that he uses.”

Shooting for this kind of a period drama takes longer and involves a lot of hard work. Iqbal says, “It takes three hours extra for me to do my getup and look the part and almost same time to remove everything. But this is how you work when you’re doing a costume drama. But yes there is so much fun too. There is so much that I am learning every day.”
