"It was a mind blowing experience working with Richa in Candy", Ronit Roy
Talking about what attracted the actor to say yes to the script, he said, "When OTT entered India, it was already present all over the world. I used to watch shows from other parts of the world and there used to be a great difference amongst our shows and their shows. Our shows used to have one hero, one heroine and a villain. Then we progressed and we started making shows like Delhi Crime, Mirzapur.
But still I used to think something was missing. When I read the script of Candy, I realised this is the one. It is a show where there is no hero, heroine or villain. It is an ensemble show. All the characters in the show have a hero and a villain inside them. They all are struggling inside and outside both. It is an intricately woven story that attracted me to the show. "
Talking about the challenges faced during the show, he said."It was a big struggle for me from day 1. When I read the script, I saw a lot of potential in my character and the script. I asked the writer to make it darker. I wanted some traits to be added to my character and some removed. Eventually after working on it, the character became very complicated. "
Sharing his views on the closure of cinema halls in Maharashtra, the actor said, "The Entertainment Industry has suffered a lot during Covid. We have to come back if not in the normal state but to near normal. We have to learn to live with it. Theatres should be opened but Maharashtra has been the most affected state with maximum number of cases and fastest spreading. The people in good offices must have taken these things into account and that is the reason they have still not opened up the theatres. "
Sharing his working experience with Richa Chadha, he said,"It was a mind blowing experience working with Richa."
