Actor Viraf Patell has been receiving a lot of positive responses for his performance in the recently-released Gujarati film, Kutch Express . The actor is now gearing up for the release of his other films, starting with Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan. In a special conversation with OTTplay, Viraf opened up about his role and experience of working with the Badshah of Bollywood.

Viraf told OTTplay, "I have played a part in the much-awaited film Pathaan. I am waiting for the film to release as an admirer of Shah Rukh Khan, who is coming back after four years on the big screen. I loved watching him on TV as well before he entered films and became a superstar. "

Elaborating further on his character in the film, the actor shared, "The character comes at a point in the story that I cannot reveal. But this is my homage to Shah Rukh Khan -- an actor and superstar who inspired me to become an actor. I have a very poetic moment and something to say to him in the film that every actor would like to tell him. But, as I said, I cannot disclose much and you have to watch the film to find out."

Apart from the SRK-Deepika Padukone starrer, Viraf will also be seen in a web series that will be released soon. Sharing more about this, he said, "I am working on Ruchi Naraina's next series titled Revenge, which is the Indian adaptation of an international series. It is a character that I have never played before; it is quite a delicious character. I will also be seen in a medical drama series produced by Sidharth P Malhotra who earlier directed Rani Mukerji starrer Hichhki. I have worked with Sarad Kelkar and Harleen Sethi in the show."

Kutch Express is currently running in the theatre.

Pathaan, produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Siddarth Anand, also stars John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia, Ashutosh Rana and Gautam Rode. It will release in theatres on January 25.
