For Divyendu Sharma, moving from PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA to CHASHME BADDOOR was as drastic as it gets. From playing a IT corporate youngster whose dialogues were peppered with the choicest of expletives from start till the finish, he has now found a drastically different vocabulary for himself, what with 'sher-o-shaayari' forming a part of his lingo.
However if the actor is to be believed, it was much easier playing a foul mouthed youngster than demonstrate the kind of 'tehzeeb', as he is required to do for the David Dhawan's madcap affair.
'Reason being in these kinds of characters, it is difficult to convince people that he is indeed like a 'shaayar'. You can't make people think ki arrey yaar, yeh zabardasti ki acting toh nahi kar raha hai. They should instead feel that he is one of them,' says Divyendu who found quite some one liners written for him in the film's script.
'Honestly, I found it very tricky to be playing a 'shaayar' in today's times. I mean you tell me, in today's real life setting, how many friends do you see indulging in 'sher-o-shaayari'? If I had to play different, I had to better make sure that it didn't look fake. I guess credit must go to Sajid-Farhad who have given me such beautiful lines with punches and all. All I had to do was to make my character look convincing. If I had to do any 'shaayari', I had to mean each and every word. Main aisa nahi kar sakta tha ki dekho, abhi main aapko ek funny line sunaata hoon,' details Divyendu.
We do hope that it all turns out to be convincing after all when the film releases all over on 5th April.
