In conversation with TellyBuzz he shares his good and bad experiences and hard facts about the industry.
It's been some months now that he is playing Raavan so what is the people's verdict about his role? Tarun shares, "Well I am so blessed that I am playing the role of Raavan and I feel that I am the biggest disciple of Lord Shiva. I feel that the Lord showered his blessings upon me and gave me this role. I wasn't the first choice to play Raavan because I was earlier rejected for the role and then I had almost lost all hopes when after a week I was called to start the shoot. Now I feel happy that this role was meant for me."
Talking about the journey of his character he said, "I am being praised a lot by fans as they call me hot and sexy. I still find it quite weird and awkward that how can Raavan look cute, hot or sexy but believe me my fans have been telling me stuff like this and I just thank them for appreciating and loving my character. Not only my fans but even people on the sets too praise me as well as my previous actors who have played Raavan who say that they can't be even one percent of what I am doing by portraying the role of Raavan. They love the way I portray the role and for me this is the biggest compliment. Even one of the senior actor who plays Raavan in Jai Jai Bajrangbali on Sahara One complimented me that I have changed the face of Raavan and that I am doing a marvelous job."
He went on to talk about his diction too, "I am a hardcore Delhi guy and thankfully my Hindi is flawless and I have been given the liberty to speak and change the dialogues and modify them my way by the makers. I am the only one who can do it as my command over the language is quite powerful."
At one end we have the greek God looking Lord Shiva with a perfect body in the form of Mohit Raina and a dashing, good looking Raavan who is as fit as Lord Shiva. They both surely have changed the look of Indian mythology, "My chemistry with Mohit Raina is good. Well, he is an amazing actor and I always wanted to play the role of Lord Shiva myself and sometimes I feel I would have done better than him but now after seeing him I feel he is the epitome of God and yes he is one of the most fabulous actors. I also feel I have changed the look of Raavan with my toned body."
Although now famous with a role like Raavan, Tarun shares a bad experience that he underwent few months back, "I was also part of CID as a cop but somehow I wasn't given a proper set of dialogues for which I had a tiff with the production house. So I can say that I have had my share of worst experiences but for me playing a Raavan is a boon."
Tarun concluded about his future plans by saying, "I am looking out for good work that comes my way and I have no clue what the future holds for me, but post Raavan I want something that is as powerful as Raavan."
Oodles of luck and prosperity to the sexiest Raavan on screen!!
