Gautam Rode On Playing A Cop For The First Time In Nakaab: 'I Take Inspiration From Real People Rather Than Looking Up To Other Actors'-EXCLUSIVE
Having started his career with Television, actor Gautam Rode has indeed come a long way over the years. The actor, who has been part of the industry for more than a decade now, has made his presence felt on all the platforms-TV, Films, and OTT. Rode was recently seen playing a cop in the suspense thriller ‘Nakaab’, which investigates a high-profile death case. In an exclusive conversation with SpotboyE.com, Rode spoke about his thought process behind taking up the web series, prepping for a cop role, and much more.

The actor shared, “When I first heard the character, I really loved it as it was very layered. Like, my character Pawan is an angry man but vulnerable at the same time and this makes him very real. I have never played a cop, and this character is not like what we see in films. If he is a good guy he remains the same throughout, or if he is bad then he is bad all through. He has many different shades to him.”

Speaking about how he met his cop friends to understand the role better, Gautam said, “I have a few cop friends who I have seen how they behave and talk. I also went to the Police Station to meet them to know more about police officers. At the same time, I feel, it’s more about catching up the 'Sur' of the character than the physicality of it. And that 'sur' director gave it to me.. like the way he speaks in general, is very normal, with words in his mouth and I found it very intriguing and I used that in a few scenes.”


The Saraswatichandra actor also shared that he prefers to take inspiration from real people rather than looking up to some actor. For Nakaab, he got inspired by the director Soumik Sen, who helped him in building his character.  

“There were no actors that I looked up to for inspiration for playing a copy. Director Soumik was my inspiration, the way he speaks and behaves sort of helped me. I generally believe that real people inspire you in life, not actors. If you take inspiration from an actor then, you end up copying and then people then start comparing you saying yeh toh uske jaise kar rha hai.  So, every time, I either take real inspiration or read a little to find out about the character,” Gautam stated.

Also starring Mallika Sherawat and Esha Gupta, Nakaab was released yesterday, on September 15:  ALSO READ :Gautam Rode Transforms Into Fierce Cop For The Upcoming Web Series Nakaab!
