EXCLUSIVE: Actor Kumud Mishra talks about his relationship with Anubhav Sinha, ‘Have learnt a lot from him’
In an exclusive interview, the actor talked about what he learned from the director. He has worked with Sinha in Mulk, Article 15 and Thappad.
Post Ra.One, we have witnessed director Anubhav Sinha delivering multiple critically acclaimed films like Mulk, Article 15 and Thappad. There is one actor who features in all three films- the very skilled and extremely humble, Kumud Mishra
We conducted an exclusive interview with the actor to learn about his inspirations. We asked him what he has learned from director Sinha and whether he taught the director something. Replying to the questions, Mishra said, “Maine unko kuch nahi sikhaya hai, mere paas sirf seekhne ke liye hi hai. Because unhone mujhe bohot kuch diya hai. Unhone professionally agar hum baat kare toh unhone mujhe har film me ek naya character diya hai aur jisne mujhe bohot kuch diya hai as an actor. Toh woh sab unka diya hua hai. Meri taraf se toh agar meri performance decent ho jaati hai, toh usse jo director ko ek khushi milti hai, woh milti hai.” (I haven’t taught him anything, I have only learned from him. He has given me a lot. Professionally, he gave me a new character in every film, which has helped me a lot as an actor. So, he has given me a lot. Talking about me giving him something, if I can give a decent performance, the happiness that a director gets is what I have given him.)
Talking about his relations with the director, Mishra said, “Aur itni filmon me kaam karne ke baad, main ek adhikaar se keh sakta hu ke thoda bohot main unke kareeb pahucha hu, ek vyakti ke taur pe, ek individual ke taur pe. Woh mere dil ke bht kareeb pahuche hai because of the association which we had for so many years.” (After working with him in so many films, I can rightly say that I have become close to him as a person, as an individual. He is very close to my heart because of the association which we had for so many years.)
