Ranvir Shorey: Bombers is a story of redemption


The show has been entirely shot in Chandannagar. And I think they are betting heavy and right on the future. This is my second show with them. What’s your take on the content being made? My character is very interesting. I am really excited about Sacred Games 2 and hope people enjoy it too. You also tend to get a better feel and vibe about your character. So, I am not anticipating something like that, and I really hope that it doesn’t happen. Most of the characters in the show have their own stories and with the sports backdrop, it just makes it more interesting. I even play the sport, although I am not very good at it. India.

You have been doing quite a lot of work in the web space. The makers came to me with this nice sports drama which also has a human interest angle. The digital medium has opened a new way to connect with the audience. Popular Photos

With so many boys around, what was the mood on set? So, you need to put your complete trust in the script and director and just slog on. Since we were at Chandannagar, we could witness the cultural heritage and imbibe those references in our roles. Do you think the same will happen with Bombers? Advertising

I love football. Does digital also help actors try out different genres, all at once? The characters, setting and story are completely different. For somebody like me, who is hungry for good work, this is a great stop. Although whatever films I have done, has always been appreciated, it did not give me enough work. And it was not just the boys, the girls were also included. You also have Sacred Games 2 up next. It’s a tale of redemption, resurgence and finding one’s identity. He is a coach with a tragic backstory that he is trying to come out from. Are you a football enthusiast in personal life? What’s your take on multi-starrer projects? Excerpts from the conversation:
How did Bombers happen? Bombers has been extensively shot in real locations and the team trained hard to play professional level football on screen. ZEE5 is doing an amazing job with such great content. In a time of world-class sets, do working in real locations help an actor? Absolutely. I always prefer real locations as it helps me in my approach and process. I have been playing football since I was a kid but with age, you tend to play it less. Whenever there is a story of resurgence of a sports team, it gets compared with Chak De! But on web space, it’s not just any but good work that’s coming my way. But the negative side is that you don’t really know what’s happening with the other cast. I think it’s a blessing and boon, not just for actors and filmmakers, but every professional in the entertainment business. I loved my part in the series and even the overall story is very aspirational. When you are working in an ensemble cast, especially in the case of a series, you get enough time to develop your characters. Advertising

Totally! It helps you get into the skin of the character more easily. Everyone loves football so there was a lot of sports happening while we were shooting. It was amazing. Ahead of the release of his show, Ranvir Shorey spoke exclusively to indianexpress.com about Bombers, working in multicast projects and the digital space. I don’t foresee any such comparison. 0
