Amol revealed that he assumed the makers would solid somebody “more famous” than him. He, nonetheless, believes casting occurred as a result of “somebody must have said that I’m a good actor. You still want to give it a shot.”

But the ultimate product, he says, was a collaborative course of. “You don’t see the events of his life (in the film). Basically it was his idea that other freedom fighters carried.”

You know you just have to do your job well because the other person is so good, that the exchange in the scene becomes so real. Vicky is brilliant at being so natural, the flow gets in, as if two people are hanging out in the scene together. He isn’t the superstar there. He’s your co-actor,” Amol stated.
The actor picked the delicate scene the place Bhagat and Udham, whereas studying their books, get candid about how they see life on the revolutionary path that they’ve launched into, with Bhagat encouraging his comrade to hold on his wrestle even after his loss of life by the hands of British. “In that scene, it looked like a real conversation between two friends who are so comfortable that they are reading their books quietly. The visual speaks of their bonding. How many friends can you do this with in real life? It’s always about having fun or partying otherwise. But the real chemistry is designed in that scene. That way I lucked out with Vicky and Shoojit sir,” Amol added.
Amol’s fan-favourite character Chitvan from TVF Tripling continues to rub off on him, with many tagging him extra as a comic book actor. But now with him getting observed regardless of a small half in Udham Singh, does he assume he’s let go of the Chitvan tag? Amol stated “maybe”, although it was the viewers that created that mould for him.
“I’m happy that I keep getting different opportunities and then audience appreciates it. It gives you confidence to try out new things, and also confidence to others to try out new things with you. People might have heard that I can just do comedy, but I’m confident that I can pull off other characters too,” he assured.
Replying with a smile on the point out of his journey from Chitvan to ‘Bhagtya’, Amol concluded saying, “It encourages you. I don’t want to be bored of my work. So I keep doing new work and keep getting excited and nervous about the results too. People keep coming to me with roles that aren’t dependent on my previous work. I’ll obviously say I can do it. But makers to take that risk shows the belief they have in me.”
