Ranvir Shorey has been getting rave reviews for his character Kalpesh Patel in the Hindi web-series Metro Park. Season 2 of the web-series went live on Eros Now yesterday. Shorey plays an Indian immigrant who runs a corner store in New Jersey.
The speciality of the character Kalpesh Patel is that he is a short-tempered but kind person.
Sharing his experience of working in the web-series, Shorey said in a statement, “Enacting the part of Kalpesh in Metro Park has been a wonderful experience. All of us have laughed our hearts out during shooting the entire season!”
Kalpesh is married to Payal (Purbi Joshi) and shares a bitter-sweet relationship with her.
Enacting Kalpesh wasn’t a challenge for Shorey despite the requirement of speaking in Gujarati regularly. “Playing the part of an NRI [non-resident Indian] was not a difficult task as my brother resides in New Jersey and is well aware of how NRIs behave and their mannerisms," Shorey continued. "Also, the comical element makes it stand out from all the other characters I have played before. Not to forget I am a Punjabi who is acting like a Gujarati!”
Created by Abi Varghese and Ajayan Venugopalan, Metro Park (Season 2) also stars Vega Tamotia, Omi Vaidya, Pitobash Tripathy and Sarita Joshi.
