Actor Kabir Duhan Singh has tried negative roles in many South Indian films and he recently played Raavan in the Hindi web series “Ramyug”. He says he’s not afraid of being labeled.
“I have no experience in the film industry, so for me there is no doubt as to whether I should start with a South Indian film or wait for a Bollywood film to come off. produce, if my debut is to be as a hero, a friend or antagonist hero. For me, it was only work that would get me more. Maybe that’s why I have the same respect for all kinds of films, regional, Bollywood or crossover, ”Kabir told IANS.
He is happy to have worked with several famous stars from the South, including Tamil actor Vijay Sethupati, as well as to have filmed with Nawazuddin Siddiqui for the upcoming film “Bole Chudiyaana”.
“I think that at the start of my career, working with two iconic actors like Vijay monsieur and Nawaz monsieur himself is a blessing and almost like attending a theater class. Of course, with every movie we grow and learn from every senior actor. But when you watch someone you admire become an actor, it works best, ”said Kabir, who has also shared screen space with Southern stars such as Kichcha Sudeep, Gopichand and Ajith Kumar, among others.
He’s not worried about starting out as an antagonist in the South.
“We have so many examples of actors who started their careers in the South like Sonu (Sood) bhaiya and Vidyut Jammwal, and who played negative characters before entering Bollywood and succeeding there. I think slowly but surely that attitude towards actors because “he’s only playing the bad guy” is changing. Nowadays, thanks to OTT, interregional casting is happening as well. So the fear of being labeled is no longer there, ”Kabir said.
“Having said that, if anything has to change, I think the media is labeling us as ‘the bad film ka from south India’ should be changed. If we don’t say ‘Film from north India’, we should also stop saying “South Indian movie” with a negative attitude, “said Kabir, who was born and raised in Faridabad, Haryana.
