Abhilash Thapliyal, who has entertained us with his viral videos, features in the new TVF series based on civil services exams preparations. The show, shot in Delhi, also stars Naveen Kasturia. “It took me back to my college days,” says Thapliyal, who was also seen in Dil Juunglee (2018) and on TV shows, Entertainment Ki Raat and Comedy Circus.
The actor is also a part of Disha Patani's KTina. "We just finished our first schedule in Chandigarh and Mohali. It's beautiful to see how people get enamoured watching a shoot. I was on that side of the camera once and it feels great to change sides," he said.
He shared that he will be playing a character named Sunil Arora, who is a political science graduate and a virgin. "The journey of the character begins in the late 20s and goes on till the early 40s. Since I am not a 40-year-old virgin, getting into the skin of character took some time. I worked on his mannerisms and how that transforms with age. Though he has an angst against people, he pretends to be cheery. On the surface, while he seems to be a simple person, he is a complex character within," he added.
And do you know Taapsee Pannu has taught Abhilash a shot or two about squash during the recent schedule of their upcoming film 'Makhna' in Delhi? Coincidentally, both the actors from Rohini, Delhi and bond over food, Delhi and now squash!
