Anshuman Malhotra opens up about the journey of his character Sameer and what the journey has been like.
MUMBAI: Anshuman Malhotra is an actor who started his career in 2014 with the film Haider in which he played the younger brother of Shahid Kapoor. After that, he debuted on TV with the serial MTV show Warrior High. Subsequently, he appeared in several shows such as Nagarjuna Ek Yoddha, Splitsvilla 11, Pyar Tune Kya Kiya, Class of 2017, and Yeh Jawani Ta Ra Ra Ri Ri.
He will soon be seen in the second season of the Lionsgate Play’s Feels Like Home.
'Feels like home' season 2 takes an interesting and relatable turn to explore the complexities of growing up as these four boys traverse from adulthood to manhood.
In this new season, we will see the boys fighting for their home and learning how to sustain their friendships when things go wrong.
Tellychakkar recently got in touch with the actor and got interesting insights about his character.
How similar are you to your character?
“I can say that some part in me could be like that of Sameer, not completely though. I feel I have the creative side of Sameer. Rest, there isn’t much common between me and my character. I do have a friend who is also particular about things like Sameer. So that is one thing I picked up from him. Apart from that, Anshuman and Sameer are quite different.”
What has the journey for your character been like?
“Sameer is the type of guy who keeps to himself for the most part. In the first season, he minds his own business and wants everyone to mind their own business. By season 2, he will understand that when you share your space with 3 other people, you have to understand and respect their way of living. You can’t be their parent and ask them to do things a certain way. He will come to peace because they all will co-exist and understand each other equally. Sameer also comes to accept himself and the fact that he will have his own journey.”
You all share a great bond on-screen. How is the bond among the four of you off-screen?
“Thankfully, all us shared a great bond. The workshop before the shoot began also helped a lot. There is also a certain sense of understanding among us that if we have to spend 50 days with somebody and work every day for 12-14 hours, we need to maintain a good relationship so that it doesn’t bother us while we’re acting. It is all a part of the process when we come to know what to say to whom and what not. The main aim is for the shoot should run smoothly. You need a certain amount of sanity and that can happen only in an environment where things are okay among the people.”
The second season of the series Feels Like Home is set to hit the platform Lionsgate Play on 7th October.
