Dilip Arya: ‘Dreams do come true’
Hailing from a small village Amauli in Fatehpur, Uttar Pradesh where his father worked as a mason, Dilip’s story to tinsel town has been of grit and perseverance. “After my father passed away at the age of 11, I started doing menial jobs while my mother worked as a farm labourer.
Dilip Arya’s Role explains by his own words
Talking about his preparations for the role, he says, “It took around four years to prepare and I even spent a lot of time in and around the area of Bundelkhand to understand the character more closely. I also spent time with the bandits in Beehad had to understand the nuances of the role. Dacoit based films like Sholay, Pan Singh Tomar, Mera Gaon Mera Desh, Sonchiriya and Bandit Queen have been cult hits; I hope this series also becomes a benchmark in the digital space.”
