Actor Gurfateh Pirzada says that the release of “Bedhadak” will occur at the ideal time
Gurfateh Pirzada is confident that filming on his highly anticipated film “Bedhadak” will begin at a “better time” because he believes that every project has its own destiny. Shanaya Kapoor, daughter of Sanjay Kapoor and reality star Maheep Kapoor, makes her acting debut in the film “Bedhadak,” which was produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Shashank Khaitan will be the film’s director. Lakshya Lalwani will also be in the film.
Pirzada claims that the current climate makes it too risky to introduce new actors to the public.
While we may share an equal level of eagerness and anticipation, the current climate makes launches more precarious and requires careful execution. “Karan sir brought me, Lakshya Lalwani, and Shanaya on board as he saw something in us and that’s why we have film contracts with Dharma,” the 26-year-old actor said in a video interview.
Despite the fact that this is a trying period for cinema, we know that good things are on the horizon and we patiently wait for them. In other words, we have a script. Each project develops in its own unique way. Waiting for a more favourable time and setting, he said, “Bedhadak” would eventually be made.
“Class,” an online television series created by Pirzada, is his most recent project. As with the Dharma Productions-backed feature film “Guilty,” set to premiere on the streaming service in 2020, this is his second collaboration with the studio.
The actor, originally from Chandigarh, said “Guilty” was his “great launch,” but he had to worry about being replaced at the last minute. He went on to star in yet another Dharma production, “Brahmastra: Part One – Shiva,” in 2022.
A small launch, but a fantastic one: “Guilty. It was always a source of anxiety for me to be the lead in a Dharma film, and I prayed that I wouldn’t get the dreaded “You’ve been replaced, it’s not working out” phone call before production began. That time before we started shooting, I was so nervous. Also, I didn’t want to blow it as an actor, so I put in a lot of effort,” he said.
Actor’s performance as Neeraj Valmiki in “Class,” Hindi version of Spanish series “Elite,” has been well received. The second season of the Ashim Ahluwalia-produced series for young adults will air on Netflix.
Prior to his film career, Pirzada was a member of the Haryana cricket team, and he has expressed his gratitude for the recent acclaim he has received.
“It’s fantastic. Unfortunately, I got my start in the industry just before the shutdown; the success of “Guilty” brought me to the forefront, but then the doors were locked. “Last year, ‘Brahmastra’ was a great opportunity, it was a big film. I’m happy this (‘Class’) is like a fresh start and people saw me again and that was not just one project. There wasn’t much opportunity for producers and directors to evaluate my abilities due to my limited screen time. Now this show has happened, and it’s fantastic,” he said.
In addition, the actor revealed that he had almost been cast in “Manmarziyaman,” a film directed by Anurag Kashyap. Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, and Abhishek Bachchan starred in the 2018 romantic comedy drama.
‘Manmarziyaan’ was the first film in which I was considered for a role. However, at that time it was meant to involve fresh faces. Taapsee and Vicky were noticeably absent. I met Mr. Kashyap and had a test with (casting director) Mukesh Chhabba. He continued, “I was almost ready to go through with it.
In the future, Pirzada plans to begin production on another series, which he has described as a slice-of-life show.
