Playing any character on screen is magic: Sikandar Kher


New Delhi: Actor Sikandar Kher, who will be essaying a negative character in the upcoming film “Milan Talkies”, says playing any character on screen is magic. “Playing any character on screen is magic, that is acting regardless of the shade,” Sikandar told IANS in an e-mail interview from Mumbai.

This is not the first time Sikandar will be playing a negative character. He has earlier portrayed a baddie in “Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive” and “24”.

Sikander says negative is just a perception.

“When you see a villain he might be a villain to many but to him he might be completely justified because he believes in what he is doing. So that for me is what is interesting to find that thought that belief,” he said.

Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, “Milan Talkies” has been shot in Lucknow with Ali Fazal in the lead role.

Shraddha Srinath will make her debut with the film, which also stars Reecha Sinha and Deep Raj Rana, Sanjay Mishra and Ashutosh Rana.
