Actor Arpit Ranka says, “Bholaa is the best debut I could have asked for.”
After waiting ten years, actor Arpit Ranka, well known for his roles as Duryodhana in the 2013 play “Mahabharat” and Kans in “RadhaKrishn,” finally landed a major role in the film “Bholaa,” which he discussed in an interview.
He portrays Bhuraa, one of the film’s antagonists.
Arpit replied, “Every actor has a dream to act in Hindi films,” when asked about his desire to make his acting debut in a Bollywood film. I, too, fit that mould. Ten years passed before I finally got a role in a Hindi film. But I suppose this is how things were always meant to be. Even if there were offers before, nobody took advantage of them. My casting as Bhuraa in ‘Bholaa’ is a fascinating tale in its own right.
“After trying out for ‘Bholaa,’ I had the opportunity to go to Ujjain and see the Mahakal temple. A call from Ajay Devgn sir’s office inviting me to audition for the role in ‘Bholaa’ came a few days later. The presence of a statue of Mahakal in his workplace came as a pleasant shock. On his first day of filming, he said, “I went on a set where one of the action sequences takes place, and there was a huge idol of Mahakal there.
He said, “The first day of my shooting was on my birthday, June 30th, with Ajay and Tabu. In the moments with Ajay Devgn and Tabu, I was a nervous wreck. But they both helped me feel at ease. As a filmmaker, Ajay Devgn gives his all with unwavering commitment and enthusiasm. He used to come on set every day at least an hour before call time to make sure everything was ready to go. He has spent so much time in the field that he now yearns to excel. Since I’m the only actor in the film to physically assault Ajay Sir, there’s been a lot of give and take on the set.
“While doing the prep work, apart from my physique, I also gave a lot of importance to my body language, specifically my eyes,” Arpit said of his preparation for the role. Ajay Sir is well-known for his powerful performances, and his eyes have become a symbol of this. It’s the most impressive first effort I could have imagined. The ship’s captain, Ajay Sir, paid me the highest compliment of all. At the premiere, he was very supportive and complimentary of my performance. It will be great to collaborate with him once more. As an actor, Bholaa is my most successful first film.
