Vihaan Samat on his character in Eternally Confused and Eager for Love
Netflix recently dropped the trailer for Eternally Confused and Eager for Love, starring Vihaan Samat as Ray
Ray is a twenty-something year old who is trying to, against all odds, find love. His life takes a hilarious turn as he heeds the advice of his imaginary friend Wiz (voiced by Jim Sarbh).
Talking about how he got into the character of Ray, Vihaan said, “Ray goes through life looking to form connections and inadvertently finds himself getting into situations which he did not mean to get into in the first place. We had workshops for more than a week. We worked on the character - Ray’s anxieties and how he behaves, putting him in different situations with different people who have different things at stake, and we tried a lot of improv which helped me understand who Ray was. Once we had that, it was just the matter of walking on set and trusting in that and just giving it my best.
“I loved the script. I genuinely did and couldn’t wait to figure out who wrote it because I knew Rahul Nair was directing it, but I didn’t know he wrote it as well. I wondered who wrote all these moments and these well-fleshed out characters. Rahul had very smart jokes and subplots planted in like episode two that paid off in episode six where we have these crazy things happening. I remember reading the script and laughing a lot,” Vihaan added on why he picked this particular story, he said.
Eternally Confused and Eager for Love is produced by Tiger Baby and Excel Media. It is set to start stream on Netflix from March 18 2022. The series also stars Rahul Bose, Suchitra Pillai, Jim Sarbh, Ankur Rathee, Dalai Mulchandnani and others.
