As the series makes heads turn with its riveting story on Disney+ Hotstar, Swastika Mukherjee talks about bonding over the script of the show.
“For an actor, a script is the Bible. I read it a lot of time and follow it closely to understand the subtext. But everything is not in dialogues, a lot more rides in the emotions which is why script reading sessions are so important. For Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach, I had a lot of sessions with Aditya Gupta who plays my son Mukul. We also had elaborate reading sessions for the court scenes where so much of the drama unravels and raw emotions had to be portrayed. These sessions helped flesh out the emotions and the action which are critical for a delicate series like this,” said the actor.
In an exclusive interview with Firstpost, Swastika, talking about her experience of working with Pankaj Tripathi, said, “It was great. We say this all the time that it was a huge learning experience and I’ve learned a lot but I realized that your co-actors, big or small, they actually don’t teach you anything, you just need to observe them, how they are in front of the camera. You also have to observe their thoughts about their characters, the subtexts, it’s a process and I was very focused seeing Pankaj Tripathi while he was performing. Half of my brain was concentrating on my performance and the other half on his, even during rehearsals. Even when we used to talk, he used to share his life experience and his work experience. Similarity, I think he’s very passionate about his work and so am I.”
The actor was critical for the last few days and undergoing treatment in Pune. His daughter refuted rumours of his demise recently in a statement.
