Mumbai: Actor Mrunal Jain is playing a double role in Naarjuna Ek Yoddha, and is now working with Himesh Reshammiya on a classy music video. This will be his second music video before he appeared alongside DJ Shergill.
Mrunal who admittedly is a big fan of Himesh Reshammiya, as he specially likes the song ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ feels that with the singing star was like working with a huge brand.
“Shooting for this music video with Himesh was wonderful because everybody industry knows what an awesome composer, singer and talent Himesh is. To be honest, I am a great fan of his work from the time I heard ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ and ‘Tera Suroor’. I still love these songs and his songs from ‘Namastey London’. Working with him is like working with a huge brand!”, said Mrunal Jain.
From been a fan, to work with the star himself, Mrunal was in all praise of Himesh, as the singer made Mrunal feel more like a friend.
“Working with Himesh was like working with a close friend. So, on set he treated me very well, he told me to sit with him only, use his own makeup artist, his own hair stylist. He told everyone to take care of me. He told the crew with him to take care of me. So, it was not like working with a producer, but working with a friend. So I felt very nice. And the way he showed me in the video I feel it’s the trailer of what I can be the next.”
Having to don an international look, Mrunal’s makeover was managed directly by Himesh himself.
“Actually, all my looks were managed by Himesh himself. He wanted me to look like a rich casino owner as well as the boyfriend of Riya. He wanted the video to look very international and not too desi. He told me to wear a tuxedo and lenses. What I really appreciate is that even though I am not a major part of the video, still he wanted me to look the best.”
Blushing about his own looks, Mrunal candidly admits that his unconventional looks have worked for him most of the time.
“Well, yes I am tall. But when it comes to being a ‘good looking’ guy, I guess I have unconventional looks. I don’t look like those typical heroes. But again, my unconventional looks worked for me. In fact, I think eight out of 10 times it has worked for me.”, said the actor.
Stressing on the need to be physically fit Mrunal believes that it’s important as an actor to be in top physical form to bag a good role.
“I feel physicality is very important part of an actor. It defines the character. This way, even the director can visualize what a character can look like. His writing may be different at first, but when it comes to casting, a filmmaker may depend on how his actor looks and add to make his character more interesting.”
