The movie, about the love and bond between a stray dog and a factory worker, leaves pet owners emotional
Sumedh Mudgalkar shares his experience
The trailer of Siddharth Kumar Tewary’s Escaype Live has only garnered accolades and laurels since the time it aired. Actor Sumedh Mudgalkar who plays Darkie in the web series shares his entire journey in the series.
He says, "When I heard the narration of Escaype Live I could relate to it instantly. All the characters come from different surroundings, doing different things but with a common goal of moving ahead in Life. This also taught us what we shouldn’t do in real life.”
He adds, "It's not easy to create content, have consistency, and be creative enough to attract the audience. They have their own set of challenges. Pulling off the attention of the audience in a matter of seconds is a tough job. I follow some social media influencers and do enjoy their content often. I appreciate the fact that income can be earned through social media, so a lot of people have new opportunities to earn and make their lives of themselves and their families better.
But in the end, it's of utmost importance that we healthily do everything. Mental peace is above everything.
Speaking about drawing a line on social media Sumedh says,” I keep an eye on my actions and involvement, what kind of content I am reading, watching, and how is it affecting me, this is something I check regularly. I don’t compare myself with anyone and one shouldn’t. Comparison is not at all healthy. I remind myself, that there are all kinds of people in this world, and I try to derive the best form of positivity from social media, if I am going otherwise, I stop.’’
Speaking about Siddharth Kumar Tewary, the man behind Escaype Live and One Life Studios, Sumedh say,”Each and every person at One Life Studios has given their best. They have worked very hard. Even during the lockdown, they were working day and night. I only pray good for the show, they get everything that they deserve. And the amount of effort SKT sir has given is amazing. In heat and rain, the way he has shot for the show is so commendable. The way he has led the team is inspiring, he is not only hardworking but also intelligent and playful. I have seen him working day and night for every character. The way he has written this is amazing.”
About his role Sumedh says,”Darkie is an entertaining character. It was challenging and thrilling to portray him on screen. The character is unpredictable and doesn’t care for good or bad. He is a cunning character, at the same time, deep inside, whatever he has become is due to his vulnerability.‘’
Speaking about the most memorable moments on set Sumedh shares, "Definitely the first few days on set, I was only getting to know my character Darkie. Simultaneously portraying Shree Krishna was very challenging. After every shot, I used to look at my director’s face for validation. The first day I felt okay, the second day was the day when I got a green signal from my director. Every day I was getting more confidence, working with seniors like Shaam Kaushal ji, Aseem Mishra ji, and many more was a great learning curve for me.”
The cast also includes Jaaved Jaaferi, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Swastika Mukherjee, Plabita Borthakur, Waluscha D"Souza, Ritvik Sahore, Geetika Vidya Ohlyan, Jagjeet Sandhu, Rohit Chandel, and child actor Aadyaa Sharma, amongst others.
