Actor-filmmaker Sohum Shah, who became a household name after the humongous success of Tumbaad, has started shooting for Reema Kagti’s upcoming web-series. The series also marks the digital debut of Bollywood star Sonakshi Sinha. Sohum is all set to play a police officer on the show.
“When I got the script, I really liked it and read it in one go. After that, I met Reema and we discussed this character. She explained the character to me and I brought some ideas on the table which she liked a lot. From there on I started working on my character. I did some reading session with Reema and the whole cast,” Sohum said.
He added, “I am wearing police uniform for the first time in my life so I started working out to change my body. I have done an intense research on how a policeman speaks, how they work and everything about their mannerism. I have also done some dialect sessions and workshops as well.”
Apart from the web-series, Sohum will be seen playing actor Abhishek Bachchan’s brother in The Big Bull directed by Kookie Gulati.
The web series, to be streamed on Amazon Prime, also features Vijay Varma and Gulshan Devaiah. It is tentatively titled Fallen and will be produced by Excel movies and Tiger Baby films
