Recently we got a glimpse of Randeep Hooda playing the role of Sarbjit in the upcoming biopic on the Pakistani prisoner by the same name. While his pictures have grabbed a lot of attention, we also hear that he is concentrating on every minute detail to execute a realistic performance. We have also seen Randeep’s avatar as a happy farmer before his life was turned upside down and now, we tell you some inside details about fun ‘akhadaa’ sequence which was shot during his happy phase in the film.
A source from the sets spilled some details and said that while shooting for the akhadda sequence in Punjab, Randeep paid great attention on the exact techniques to be used to make it look real. He spoke to the villagers, who played akhadaa to get knowledge on some of right moves used in Kushti (wrestling) and what would be the correct way to wear the akhadaa lungi. That’s not all. The source added that Randeep used to even talk to villagers who knew Sarbjit and ask them about some unknown facts about him. It was his way of studying his character and getting to know him in depth.
The method actor who has given his immense dedication and hard work for the look of the character didn’t fail to give attention to his body language and dialect too. The actor was giving uttermost attention on delivering the rustic Punjabi dialect which Sarbjit used to have.
A source from the set informed “Randeep was all in for this sequence as it involved performing some ‘Kushti’ moves. He had to learn some moves to do justice to the scene for which he was all prepared and took it as a challenge to master it. The local people themselves tutored him through the moves and were amazed to see him do it in no time for which he was appreciated by them. It was a fun sequence to shoot for the whole cast and crew who were present.”
Sarbjit also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Dalbir Kaur and Richa Chadda as Sarbjit’s wife Sukhpreet Singh. The film is slated to release on May 20.
