The Forgotten Army actor Sunny Kaushal: Historical genre can entertain and educate the audience


However, I must add that he is very hard working, and when he takes up such a project, he researches everything about them. I didn’t have to think twice before attempting something. The story is worth telling, and I was amazed at how much knowledge Kabir sir had on the subject.”
Sunny has earlier also been part of period drama Gold and even his last release Bhanga Paa Le had him play a character from the pre-independence era. It was a new world altogether,” Sunny shared. And apart from entertaining, you will also end up educating people at the same time,” shared the 30-year-old. Headlining the five-episode series will be Sunny Kaushal and debutant Sharvari.

Kabir Khan’s The Forgotten Army starts streaming on January 24 on Amazon Prime Video. So yes, having done a few roles set during that time, the research did come in handy for me. You just have to keep doing roles which you want to. Sharing that he has some connect with the bygone era, the actor smiled to say, “I think I lived in that time period in my past life.”

“None of us know what exactly happened then, it’s mostly an interpretation. So now if you quiz him, he will know every minute detail.”
Since he is a fan of history, we asked him about his take on the genre becoming a means of entertainment. #TheForgottenArmy, trailer out now. Also, we were trained in handling weapons, combat training, march past among more. Vicky might beat me up for this but he has no knowledge of history. He said, “No one can go back in time but one has to understand that there were people who gave their lives for us. Talking about the web series, Sunny Kaushal, in an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, shared, “From an actor’s point of view, it was a great opportunity to play this character. Honestly, I didn’t even know that both projects will be released in the same month. “I think it’s a good thing. I feel grateful and responsible that I have been given the chance to tell their stories to the world.”
Starting January 24, The Forgotten Army will stream on Amazon Prime Video. Now that it is, I am more than happy, mostly because of the fact that the two characters and projects are starkly different from each other.”
