Kavin Dave has played funny characters in a number of Hindi films like My Name Is Khan (2010), Crook (2010), Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi (2012) and Kick (2014). But he will be seen portraying a negative character for the first time in the Hindi web-series Flesh, which has Swara Bhasker playing the starring role as a police officer.

Dave said he is excited to be a part of the show as he believes it is important to discuss issues like human trafficking. Speaking about his character, he said, “I am playing a transporter who is part of this ugly business; the guy who smuggles these victims (girls and boys) from point A to B.”

Dave said he went through some ordeals in order to get into the character. “So, this character Jayant is always on the run and hardly sleeps. That's what his job demands. I, who otherwise sleep early and wake up early, had to deprive myself of sleep to play Jayant. I actually did not sleep for all my major shoot days and that really helped me feel the grogginess and irritability of the character. Also, in the first schedule, I did not bathe for days on end to feel and look the part,” he said.

Flesh also stars Akshay Oberoi and Mahima Makwana. The show went live yesterday on Eros Now.
