Chandan, who appeared in movies like Love Aaj Kal, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Lady and Rangbaaz, credited the collection to director Ashim Ahluwalia. He informed Hindustan Occasions in a chat, “My experience as an actor was amazing. Yes, mixed reviews have come after release because what we are seeing is out of our league. It’s ahead of its time.” The movie touched upon a number of points, together with the category system, racism and the darkish world in a society influenced by cash.
The actor described Class as a ‘mirror to the society.’ “So many people are watching it, and our purposed is resolved. I know a lot of people from Pakistan and Bangladesh have appreciated it for talking about islamophobia and the LGBTQ community. Agar Pathaan jaise film super hit ho sakti hai, woh entertainment ha (A film like Pathaan can become a hit because it is entertainment). But, I don’t believe that someone is tied to a rope attached to a helicopter, Shah Rukh Khan ek pair maarta hai aur John Abraham gir jata hai (I don’t believe that John Abraham in Pathaan dies just because Shah Rukh kicks him). He is unable to save himself. But class is a reality. This is what is happening nowadays.”
Whereas Chandan performs a key position in Class, his title is lacking from world’s hottest movie portal, IMDb. When requested about it, he shared, “I asked my team about it. Mera acha role hai. My character is well-distributed, crafted and performed. It has everyone’s contribution, from the director to the costume designer, I have given my soul to it. I don’t know why they missed out on it. They told me I can edit it on IMDb.”
Class brings out the darkish aspect of society. A lot just like it, the Bollywood business is usually considered an obnoxious place, full of drug events, rampant intercourse and way more. Chandan stated he doesn’t consider in it, nevertheless, he doesn’t wish to attend any starry events. “You are secluded when you don’t indulge in alcohol, or drugs at parties. For me, it’s a time waste. You might get work by socialising at these parties but your work finds you.”
Does that imply all Bollywood events are the identical or have celebrities simply turn into a smooth goal? He opined citing some current incidents as examples, “What you think about Bollywood becomes believable when you see it on news. Yahape sab drugs nahi karte. Lekin ha, jaha paisa hai waha cheezon ka shoshan hota hai (Everyone is not doing drugs here. But there is always exploitation where money is involved).”
Chandan will probably be subsequent seen in Siddharth Anand’s upcoming Fighter and lately wrapped up its first schedule in Assam. It stars Hrithik Roshan, Deepika Padukone and Anil Kapoor.
