Actor Abhishek Bajaj was recently seen in Babli Bouncer, essaying the role of Tamannaah Bhatia’s love interest. Describing his working experience with the actress as 'interesting', Abhishek adds that he was surprised of that fact that even though Madhur Bhandarkar made some of the most hard-hitting serious films, in real life, he is quite the opposite by nature.

Sharing his experience of working with Tamannaah, Abhishek told OTTplay, "It was such an interesting exchange we had throughout the film because we were bouncing off each other's energy. I met her first time during our workshop and we were doing a lot of improvisation and talking about how to improve scenes. Since she was playing a bouncer in the film, after pack up and early in the morning, she would do workouts even after such a long work schedule. Such dedication from an actress really boosts our energy, I mean there was no room I would take anything lightly."

Madhur Bhandarkar is known for delivering National Award-winning films including Page 3, Fashion, Chandni Bar, and Traffic Signal.

Recalling his meeting with Madhur, the actor said, "I was one of his fans who watched all his films and in my head, he was a super series man because obviously, I assumed his nature based on all his films! But he was actually a very friendly, articulate and down-to-earth person! I was surprised."

Abhishek also played a pivotal role in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, which starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor.

According to Abhishek, after the film’s release, he used to get the kind of roles which he had already played in his earlier films. He was also surprised to hear that Madhur imagined him as a chocolate boy character, like Viraj in Babli Bouncer.

"It is easy to get typecast and breaking that becomes a task. I am really thankful that Madhur sir cast me in a different role, Viraj is a guy who is calm and composed and instead of him running after the girl, the girl falls for him! I really liked the twist," Abhishek signed off.

Babli Bouncer is directed by National award-winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, featuring Sahil Vaid, Saurabh Shukla, Saanand Verma, Supriya Shukla among others - is streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
