Sunny Kaushal and Nushrat Bharucha are paired opposite each other in director Nikhil Bhat’s Hurdang. But the film also features Vijay Varma in an important role. His first look from the film has just been released.
The film is set in the 1990s and deals with the politics of those times. Varma plays a college student Loha Singh from Allahabad. Hence, his look had to appear authentic to the bygone decade and the region from where he belongs.
In the pictures released by the makers, Varma is seen wearing a loose shirt along with a watch that fits with the decade. The actor sports a moustache as well to go with the look of the times.
Speaking about the look, Varma said in an official statement, “We arrived at the final look after many trials. We wanted to get the milieu right and took references from many real-life personal pictures from the late 80s which the team had gathered for mood boarding. Sheetal Sharma is the designer on this film and we worked closely over many trials to get the vibe of Loha Singh right. Power and leadership are his main traits and we made sure it reflects in the styling.”
The actor also threw some light on the scripting process of the film. “The script has a lot of answers in explaining the political scenarios of the 1990 and what was the general sense of response by these characters to the times they were living in. Discussions and looking up the history helped in making it more nuanced instead of settling for a uni-dimensional approach to the period,” added Varma.
