Sunny Singh has made an indelible mark in the romantic-comedy genre with his impressive performances in films like ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’, ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’, ‘Ujda Chaman’ and ‘Jai Mummy Di’. Now, the actor is all set to present a new facet of him as a mythological hero Shesh (Lakshman) in the upcoming epic ‘Adipurush’.
Veteran actor Sunil Lahri, who metamorphosed the character of Lakshman in Ramanand Sagar’s television adaptation of the epic ‘Ramayana’ (which is still remembered after several decades), feels that audiences must wait to watch ‘Adipurush’ before passing judgement.
While the trailer of the highly anticipated movie has been praised by one and all, we spoke to Sunil for his opinion on the modern representation of Lakshman in ‘Adipurush’ by Sunny Singh. He informs, “At this stage, it is very difficult to say anything because there is hardly anything shown of Lakshman’s character in the trailer, but I am sure Sunny is a good actor and he must have done justice to the role since he also has previous references of the character. Any good performance by an actor depends on how his character is created by the maker including writer, director, cinematographer and editor”.
“When I was shooting for ‘Ramayan’, I didn’t have any reference from the past for the character of Laxman and whatever little I have managed to do, it is because of the guidance of Sagar Saab (Ramanand Sagar). The credit goes to him and the writers of the television serial. I really wish great success to ‘Adipurush’ as well as Sunny Singh and rest of the cast,” Sunil adds.
