Anyone who has watched Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew’s performances in Moothon, C U Soon and Kuruthi, would hardly be surprised at his inclusion in Alia Bhatt-starrer Darlings, which is directed by Jasmeet K Reen. 

In an exclusive interview with OTTplay, the actor, who had earlier played the lead in Anurag Kashyap’s Choked, shares his experience on working in Darlings, which is co-produced by Ali Bhatt, Gauri Khan and Gaurav Verma. 

“Darlings was primarily exciting because of my co-actors Alia Bhatt, Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma. I have seen a lot of their work and they are all exceptional actors. I got to work with them for most of my scenes and that was what I enjoyed the most,” Roshan tells us. 

On the change in working styles, the actor, who had been active in the Mumbai theatre circuit before his film debut, says, “It was a completely different style of working from the way we do films in Malayalam. The working environment, the way the actors prepare for the scene, their approach – everything is different. So, I had a lot of fun watching these three people, who are exceptionally good at what they do. I was getting a kick out of working with them.”

The team of Darlings, which has music composed by Vishal Bhardwaj, had wrapped up its shoot in July. The comedy drama also marks Alia’s debut production venture. 

Meanwhile, Roshan will also be making his Tamil debut with Vikram’s mass action-thriller Cobra. The actor is also part of Biju Menon’s Oru Thekkan Thallu Case, Lijin Jose’s Chera and Nirmal Sahadev’s Kumari.
