After having worked in television, cinema and now the web, Surya Sharma is looking forward to what the web series space has to offer him. He is happy and elated to have shared screen space with legends such as Ronit Roy and Tisca Chopra in Applause Entertainment’s HOSTAGES.
The adaptation of the 2013 Israeli series of the same name is a family drama induced with a crime thriller. Directed by Sudhir Mishra, HOSTAGES involves a cast that includes Tisca Chopra, Ronit Roy, Parvin Dabbas, Aashim Gulati, Dalip Tahil and Mohan Kapoor.
Talking about his experience working with National award-winning director Sudhir Mishra, Surya Sharma said, “I didn't have much time on hand so I began to gather information on my character from Sudhir sir since the first day of the shoot. He is the most amazing mentor one can ask for. Sudhir sir sent me to a few places where I could possibly get some leads on my character.”
“I follow a very simple process to understand my character. I isolate myself from everyone and live the character’s life. I listen to the background music a lot; it helps you in finding the correct approach for a character. According to me there’s no method as such, it is all about your gut and instinct, just feel it and do it. I believe in ‘less is more’ in every aspect of life including acting”, he added.
Co-created by Applause Entertainment and Banijay Asia, the show is streaming from May 31 and will be available in multiple Indian languages on Hotstar.
