My role in the film is not similar to ‘Shaitan‘… In ‘Shaitan‘, Bejoy Nambiar tried to show the film in a realistic and stylistic manner and even Saurabh (Verma) has tried the same.
In the film, Shiv Pandit plays a police officer from Muzaffarnagar, who comes to Mumbai to meet his fiancee, but due to certain situations he holds seven hostages and threatens to kill all of them in a span of seven hours.
About the challenges of the role, Shiv said:
All roles are challenging for me as I usually have a lot of doubt on myself if I am doing it well or not.
It was challenging that this character’s tension and stress should be on such a level and so convincing because he is not a bad person but is just put under a pressure cooker situation where he loses his balance and control. To show this convincingly on the screen was the challenging part.
