Actor Mantra plays the role of a dangerous don from Nepal in the web series, “The Casino”, and says he enjoys playing negative roles.
The show is about a casino, the many stakeholders involved in it and the drama that unfolds.
“Negative characters suit me. After playing the mastermind of Panipat war in Ashutosh Gowariker’s movie ‘Panipat’ last year, this year it is a manipulating gangster from Nepal in the web series ‘The Casino’,” he said.
“The character of Rinzin is special. Although the character is based in Nepal, I have given Rinzin shades of my friends from northeast India, with whom I’ve spent much time. As an actor, you don’t only look the character, you work on multiple aspects like the dialect and culture he hails from. That’s what I tried to adapt to,” he added.
