Uttaran actor Mrunal Jain has been in the telly world for over a decade, but considers the upcoming Bollywood film Sooryavanshi his biggest break of his career. Sooryavanshi, which has been ready for release for a while, will finally drop on November 5. “This is a film which was most awaited in 2021, and is finally releasing after one and a half year. We are hoping that if this film works, the entertainment and theatres will be back in action. The audience can enjoy it. So I’m definitely looking forward to this fim and it’s the biggest break of my career. I hope people notice my work,” he said.
“For the last 3 years, I have been getting calls for negative roles only. In Sooryavanshi also, I’m playing the antagonist, so I feel I’m also exploring the antagonist side. It’s very interesting that with the positive face, I’m going to play the antagonist role. As an actor I feel I’ve always been positive and the protagonist. In the last film I also did a negative role. I think I’m actually trying to identify myself as an antagonist. I’m exploring this side of the role,” he added.
For the film, which also stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, he shot in Hyderabad, Ooty and Mumbai. “So 3 different locations in the year 2019. And of course all the superstars were there,” he said. Every moment on the set was interesting for him. “The reason is that it was completely new. For me to be on Rohit Shetty’s set and it was like a dream, so I was actually in my dreamland. Every moment, every shot, every scene were just learning experiences. Every day at Sooryavanshi set was a memorable day,” he said.

“I was seeing the way the actors had their dedication towards their craft, towards their scene. How they used to perceive their scenes, their characters. So I’ve only grasped everything inside me and I’ve kept it with me. To be directed by the best director Rohit Sir, it was likea dream. It was the best moment in my career. The best of my days in my career,” he added. He has a long list of the kind of films he wants to do.
“I have a long list, but life and my career are always surprising me with different kinds of roles, so I am now leaving it up to each day as it comes. I’m definitely not restricting myself to a few roles, but I’m exploring whatever comes to me. I’m trying to see new dimensions to the role and my career with that role. I just want to go with the flow,” said Mrunal.
