Shridhar Watsar: Playing double role is challenging


Mumbai, Sep 29 (IANS) Actor Shridhar Watsar says playing a double role in the show “Baalveer Returns” is challenging.

“When I worked in the first season, I received immense love from the audience, especially from the kids. I remember when I was in Udaipur for the shooting of ‘Dhadak’, people recognised me for my role in ‘Balveer’. When the second season was being conceived, the maker, Vipul Shah, asked me to continue. Being called for the second season was a special feeling,” said Shridhar.

“Playing double role is challenging. Tauba Tauba and Dooba Dooba (the characters he is portraying) are completely opposite. One is positive and the other one is negative. There is some special make-up as the character needs extra long ears and with that, the costume is heavy. Sometimes it is tough to carry that costume in the heat for long hours. An actor needs to switch on and off when he is playing a double role,” he said.


Shridhar also pointed out an important angle of casting midget actors like him.

“I am happy that in the last few years people have given me opportunity, but what concerns me is the type of character a dwarf usually gets in our industry. I thought Aanand L. Rai’s ‘Zero’ would change the perception. When a superstar like Shah Rukh Khan dons the character of a dwarf, there is an acceptance. The fate of ‘Zero’ could have changed our fate too, but unfortunately the film did not work out,” he said.
