Sooraj Thapar does a five-for in Chandragupta Maurya
Challening scenes for Sooraj Thapar in Chandragupta Maurya...
In Imagine's Chandragupta Maurya, which is produced by Sagar Arts and 72 Degrees North, Sooraj Thapar recently shot a very challenging scene wherein he had to play not one, not two but five different roles in one frame. The scene was that of the five look alikes of King Dhananand who are in conversation with each other.
Our source states, "As we know, Dhananand has quite a few of his look alikes. He uses them to his advantage whenever the situation demands it. The look alikes then imitate Dhananand and try to handle the situation. In this scene, their real selves come out as they converse with each other in a room. Just before the war commences, Dhananand has put to their knowledge that they can be called any moment to adorn Dhananand's role. They are seen talking about the challenges they face in imitating the King's mannerisms. Sooraj Thapar, who had earlier also played the role of Dhananand's father Padmanand, gets an opportunity to don five roles in one frame, which he carried out with great keen."
Let's now hear it from the actor himself as he tries out this unique sequence!
When contacted, Sooraj Thapar confirmed the news and said, "Yes it is true that such a scene was shot recently. It came across as a challenge to play five different roles in one frame. I have tried my best to be as different as possible in each role. The look alikes,for a change, are not imitating Dhananand and are seen in their individual roles."
This scene will be aired in the coming episodes. Sooraj Thapar, in addition to Chandragupta Maurya, is also seen in Star Plus' Sasural Genda Phool.
This indeed is a Tir Kit Dha yet again!
