Grab your popcorn to settle in for a wild ride with Netflix’s latest heist comedy-drama, Choona on 29th September! This binge-worthy affair will have you on the edge of your seat, with a thrilling mix of drama, comedy, and action that will leave you begging for more. At the heart of it all is Aashim Gulati, in the role of Ansari, a goofy yet lovable character – a gully ka gunda, unlike any that he has played before.
Adopting the role of a character from the heartland was an exciting challenge for Aashim. He underwent extensive training and workshops to fully immerse himself in Ansari’s world, embracing the nuances and mannerisms of a person from a different cultural background. Aashim’s dedication to his craft shines through in his portrayal, promising authenticity in the show.
As the director’s choice for the role of Ansari, Aashim felt both thrilled and challenged. Sharing his enthusiasm for this exciting project, he said “Choona was a prolific and wholesome journey as I haven’t played a character like this before,”. Known for his boy-next-door charm, Aashim admitted that he often gets calls for similar roles. However, Netflix’s Choona presented to him with a fresh opportunity to break out of that mold and explore newer dimensions as an actor.
He added, “I am ecstatic to be a part of ‘Choona’ and to bring Ansari’s character to life. Ansari’s journey is a rollercoaster of emotions, blending drama, comedy, and action in a truly unique way. Roles like this allow me to experiment and test my craft, encouraging me to mold myself into more versatile characters. Working on this series has been an incredible opportunity for growth, and I am excited for audiences to see me in this never-seen-before avatar.”
One of the highlights of Choona revealed by Aashim is the genius writing and attention to detail by Pushpendra Nath Misra. Adding further to this, he shared, “His vision of how Choona should materialize on screen was so precise that there was hardly any room for improvisation. Such meticulousness ensures that every aspect of the show is purposeful and adds depth to the characters and the plot.”
As the release of Choona draws closer, the series promises a thrilling ride for its viewers. So prepare yourself for the whirlwind of emotions, laughter, and excitement that Choona has in store.
