Ishwak Singh is teaming up with Aparshakti Khurana and Rahul Bose for their upcoming ZEE Studios film, Berlin. Fans have been anxiously awaiting to see what the three powerhouse performers come up with, and now that the makers unveiled the first look from the film, audiences cannot seem to keep calm. 

While the actors look quite intense in their look, Ishwak, the actor who rose to fame from his last highly successful web series titled Rocket Boys where he played the character of iconic Indian physicist Vikram Sarabhai, explained why the look of the character is so important for him to get under the skin of the character.

Ishwak said, "When an officer puts on his uniform in real life he feels empowered or a businessman puts on his suit before a meeting, it's what gets them in a certain state of mind to go about doing their job. For me, the look of any character is very important in that sense."

He said that he tried to focus on the physicality and the psyche of the character a lot but getting the right look adds a unique element to the personality. In the upcoming film, he looks to give away the vibe of grunge and grit. It seems he would be playing an intense character.

Ishwak has also acted in the web series Pataal Lok, the anthology Unpaused and acted in films such as Aligarh, Veere Di Wedding, Malaal, Tryst With Destiny.

On the other hand, Aparshakti also looks very different in the film, in fact, no one has seen him in such an avatar.

He is seen flaunting a thick moustache and carrying the whole image of a common man, which promises an extraordinary story.

The core story of Berlin revolves around a sign language expert, who gets into a rivalry between intelligence agencies, deceit, and corruption.

Atul Sabharwal, the director of Berlin, which is produced by Zee Studios, revealed that he is quite happy with the way the movie is shaping up.
