Mumbai, March 24 (IANS) Actor Darshan Kumar, whose next release is “Mirza Juuliet”, says he needed to speak to a psychologist to get into the mind of his character in the movie.
Talking about it, he said in a statement: “Mirza is a complex character, he has been through a lot very early in life. He has spent his earlier years of life serving jail term for avenging his parents’ death. He has killed since, but he yearns to live a normal life.”
“For someone like me, it was very difficult to understand how could someone with such a tainted past live a normal life. I actually met a psychologist friend of mine to get my head around the character.”
Darshan, who is known for starring in “Mary Kom”, added: “For me, it doesn’t matter if I am merely standing in the frame, I need to be in character, and I need to become the character.
“I have to give it my all. And for someone like Mirza, I owed it to him to do justice to his character.”
“Mirza Juuliet” stars Pia Bajpai, Chandan Roy Sanyal and Priyanshu Chatterjee. Directed by Sunil Dharshan, the film is releasing on April 7.
