He knows when to move, and when to be still; when he moves he does very gracefully and very deadly at the same time. Explained: What is the much-discussed 'coalition of social extremes'?

I enjoyed them all. That requires a kind of stamina to be able to live with this guy, and have him constantly accessible. So what was the most challenging part about playing Malik?

First one was cool because it is dynamic and kind of encapsulates the character perfectly. “I think it had nothing to do with the character.
The rising talents have proved their brilliance with their skills.
Your question, frankly, is unnecessary to me. He is extremely reactive, and extremely responsive. I read the script.
So what was the brief he got from SLB about playing Malik, a character who after a point even controlled the mind of Khilji. The Prithvi Theatre in Mumbai is said to be the versatile stage for many veteran actors in the industry. There are many actors who have emerged from the theatre like Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, and Shabana Azmi, and many others. The luxury of choice is not offered to industry outsiders.”.
