Director Vinil Mathew On Aditya Srivastava, ‘It Is Interesting To See Him Get Frustrated And Helpless Beneath The Veneer Of A Cop’ - EXCLUSIVE
Aditya Srivastava, famously known for playing a cop on the iconic show CID, is back donning the khakis. In the reel world, his slaps have made serial killers cry out all their crimes. His bullets have cut through trees, trains, and traffic to hit the gangsters they're after. However, in the upcoming Netflix thriller, Haseen Dillruba, Aditya plays a cop of great conviction, exceptional guts but very low self-esteem. For when he's not busy chasing rogue criminals, he can be found chasing his supervisor's validation. Set in a small town, the movie begins with a blast that kills a young engineer, with a case of murder landing on Aditya's lap.

While he was initially skeptical of playing yet another perfect cop, Aditya took the character and made it his own. Onset, he could be found randomly pointing finger guns at spot dadas, as he'd improvise and warm-up for his performance. Talking about his experience working with him, director Vinil Mathew said, “We have always seen Aditya Srivastav as the tough cop, but here we see him trying to play a toughie but failing miserably. It is interesting to see him get frustrated and helpless beneath the veneer of a super cop. Aditya Sir was quite the sport in playing this imperfect, flawed and layered role and improvised a lot with quirky renditions complete with his trademark humor.

The director further adds, "He is also a dream to work with - supremely talented, focused, and humble. With all the madness going on in the set, he would be that one calming factor."
