I wasn’t nervous at all during the shoot because when you are fully prepared with what you have to do, things get automatically easy.” When asked about the present scenario of women-oriented films in the industry, Sohum said, “Industry people should make women-oriented films more often. Actor Sohum Shah, known for films like Ship of Theseus and Talvar, is set to play Kangana Ranaut’s love interest in upcoming film Simran and he says his part is completely different from his earlier roles. “Hansal sir is very calm no matter how much stress is there. I’ve learnt so many things from him. He always handles everything very calmly. Directed by Hansal Mehta, the film is reportedly inspired by the life of an NRI nurse in the US. I have a very important character in the film,” the actor said. “It’s a very different role from the films that I have previously done. So, industry should offer them such films. Films like ‘Pink’, ‘Queen’, ‘Piku’ or ‘Simran’ they all have very different approach in their stories. I’m a very restless person I don’t have much patience. I’m playing Kangana’s love interest, who will bring a change in her life. But he never takes pressure be it for shooting on different locations or managing things on sets. It’s very important.

Sohum is first time working under Mehta’s direction and he is all praise for the Aligarh helmer.
