Actor Sharad Kelkar found it fascinating to play a character with dark and white shades in equal proportions, in the digital project Black Widows.
Essaying the role of Jatin Malhotra, Sharad said: “At first glance, Jatin looks like the ideal person. He has worked hard to get the success he has today. As the story unfolds, the audience will see that there is more to him, a darker side that he keeps his family shielded from.”
“It was fascinating for me to play a character with equally dark and white shades to it. There is lot of mystique to my character. I am looking forward for everyone to witness it,” he added.
Actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay will be seen playing a cop in the series.
He said: “After playing the role of a quirky taxi driver in ‘Tiki-Taka’, switching to Pankaj Mishra as a cop was a complete u-turn for me. He takes what life has to offer and makes the most of it, but there is this specific case that will change things for him in a way that nobody will see coming. Definitely a plot-twister for the series.”
Actor Aamir Ali will be making a special appearance on “Black Widows” as Eddie.
“He is an interesting character, written in a way that leaves a lot of uncharted territory for me to bring something unique to the table. Eddie is the most vulnerable and the real character in ‘Black Widows’. His innocence has its own charm but will definitely not hold back in showing the vulnerable side,” he said.
