It is indeed rare for people to experience what they had manifested years ago. Being amongst one of the credible actors,Paresh Pahuja belongs to the set of actors whose work is the testimony of his craft and how far he has come in this journey purely on basis of his skills. The charming actor shares how life has come full circle for him at IFFI, Goa.
Paresh shared, "It’s magical how the universe works. The first time I attended IFFI was 10 years ago. I was a media student and a film enthusiast then. I remember very vividly I was in the audience for one of the screenings. The cast and crew came up on stage and I was like “one day I’m going to be on that stage too” I don’t know why I said that. I didn’t even know I wanted to be an actor. It felt surreal to be on that stage for Kadak Singh’a premiere."
Sharing about his experience of working on 'Kadak Singh,' Paresh further shared, "This has been the most challenging film for me, as an actor. And it was because of food! I really had to control my taste buds while shooting for 'Kadak Singh.' India mein pyaar jatane ka zariya khaana hai. Pankaj ji and Tony Da brought home-cooked food for us everyday on the sets, Sanjana also brought food. A couple of times, I even ordered some food and took to the set for everyone, letting them assume that it was cooked by me (he laughs). I would like to declare that you will find the best momos in India at Pankaj Ji's residence."
He further stated, "Even though the film is titled 'Kadak Singh,' it has been made by the most gentle human beings. Attending the premiere at IFFI was beautiful. We could hear the audience laugh, cry, and clap. It took us almost 20 minutes to reach the exit from our seats in the theatre as on every step people came along to click pictures, to shower appreciation. I was being called by my character's name, Arjun. It was delightful!"
