Actor Bajrang Bali Singh, who essayed
the role of Deven Gandhi in Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Sarkar 3", says
he listened to the megastar's hit song "Arre deewano mujhe pehchaano"
on loop before shooting for his scenes.
Bajrang says he was nervous as he had to act in front of Amitabh.
"I was really nervous as I had to confront the biggest icon of Indian cinema in the very first scene. So to psyche myself up, a night before the shoot, I was listening to the song 'Arre deewano mujhe pehchaano' from the movie 'Don' on loop," Bajrang told IANS.
"That song somehow gives me an adrenaline rush and that's what I needed to get rid of my nerves. Overall, it was a wonderful experience to share screen space with the legend. It was definitely a dream come true," he added.
The actor, who has worked in the TV series "Dharmakshetra" for Epic Channel and is a voiceover artist for Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, says "Sarkar 3" director Ram Gopal Varma put "immense faith" in him.
"Ram Gopal Varma gave me a lot of freedom to enact and improvise my scenes as per the character's demand. I really had no idea about the story till the time I saw the movie. And to my surprise, my character turned out to be one of the really important ones in the movie," said Bajrang, who began his career in films with director Zaid Ali Khan's movie "Khwaabb" in 2014.
"Sarkar 3", which released last month, was third installment of the "Sarkar" franchise which also featured Ronit Roy, Jackie Shroff, Manoj Bajpayee, Amit Sadh and Yami Gautam.
