Gulshan Devaiah: Duranga is localised to sensibilities of sub-continental cultures

Duranga is set to stream on the ZEE5 platform from August 19

Actor Gulshan Devaiah, who is currently gearing up for his upcoming OTT series Duranga, said that it's imperative for actors to first understand their characters and let the characters' traits naturally precipitate in their mannerisms, and not rush to do the job without any preparations.

Elaborating on the same, the actor said, "Everything is difficult if you don't spend enough time to figure it out and understand it."

That's the reason he didn't find it difficult to make his way around his character in Duranga." It wasn't difficult at all once I had enough preparation. Whether it worked remains to be seen," he said.

Directed by Pradeep Sarkar and Aijaz Khan, Duranga is an adaptation of a Korean show, Flower of Evil.

When asked what the show offers in terms of novelty since it's an adaptation of an already existing show, Gulshan said, "Ours is an adaptation and it's been localised to the sensibilities of our sub-continental cultures. So the plot points may be similar, but the feel and experience will be different."

Speaking about his experience of working with the show directors, he said, "It was my first experience with both Pradeep Sarkar and Aijaz Khan. They both have different styles of working/approaching a scene. It took a little while to understand and adapt."Duranga is set to stream on OTT platform ZEE5 from August 19.
