Abhishek Banerjee calls Rana Naidu's directors 'very dark': They went way beyond the original

Abhishek Banerjee rose to fame with his spine-chilling character in Paatal Lok. The talented actor has garnered immense praise and a unique fan following by playing versatile roles in multiple projects including Pitchers and Stree. He is now set to be seen playing one of the significant characters in the Venkatesh and Rana Daggubati starrer Rana Naidu, which is the highly anticipated crime-thriller series on Netflix. 

The makers have recently dropped the trailer of the web show, which is an official Hindi adaptation of the popular American drama Ray Donovan. During the trailer launch event, Abhishek shared his thought on his character in the show and said that he was looking for something that challenges him more. He shared, "I have been doing all the UPites and North Indian characters may be because I am from Kanpur Ilahabad. But I was looking for something that challenged me more. And I think, whenever you have to get to some kind of diction or like an accent which is not very familiar to you then I think you start thinking about it more. So, to do that was the most challenging part for me."

"You will see, how messed up my character is when you'll see the show. To just mess up my mind for a character and thanks to Suparn (Verma) and Karan (Anshuman) I think they both have a very dark mind. So I think they went way beyond the original," he added.

Along with Venkatesh, Rana and Abhishek, the trailer gives a few glimpses of all the actors, who are playing key characters in the series including Surveen Chawla, Sushant Singh, Abhishek Banerjee, Suchitra Pillai, Gaurav Chopra, Ashish Vidyarthi and Rajesh Jai.

Though the latest official video, the forthcoming crime drama surely looks dark and so do the characters. 

Rana Naidu is slated to drop on Netflix on March 10, 2023.
