“I am playing the role of a lead in this act; I am also directing and producing the play. For this role I have been preparing for last six months and I have lost 20 kgs for this. The role is of a Pakistani Soldier, who is of age twenty to twenty two years. And my age is thirty six years. To look fifteen - year younger, I took this decision of losing weight and I think I am succeeding in my decision. For this I run 11 Kms every day, and along with Exercise, I control my diet as well”, said artist Rajeev Mishra, Actor – Director – Producer, Sarhad Ki Ek Raat.
Actor Umesh Pant told us that very soon a play will be performed in the City of Jaipur in which he is playing the role of colonel.
“For this role I have to look experienced and mature. And for this I have gained 10 kgs in very short days. This is our practise for Method Acting, in which we change our body structure and attributes. This type of acting can be seen in many movies because Actors are paid well and supported. We work for passion. In theatre there are only a few people who perform method acting”, said Actor Umesh Pant.

This is only my passion towards acting and theatre, that I do anything to look like a character”, said Actor Yogendra Singh Parmaar.
