Priyanshu Painyuli unveils ‘gangster’ look from Extraction

The actor, who broke out with Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, plays a underworld mafioso in Extraction 

Published: 14th April 2020

Chris Hemsworth-starrer Extraction is set to begin streaming on April 24. The film, which was earlier titled Dhaka, is backed by the Russo Brothers with Sam Hargrave as its director.

Extraction stars a clutch of Bollywood actors including Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi, and Priyanshu Painyuli amongst others. 

Priyanshu, who broke out with Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, plays an underworld mafioso in the film. In his first look, the actor is seen donning chunky gold jewellery. He was required to wear a lot of local fabrics including kurtas and silken shirts which are characteristic of Bangladeshi locals. Deep-hued monotones are used to dress him.

Priyanshu shared, "I have always felt the way you dress up as a character makes you behave in a certain way. For me, mainly my shoes matter a lot. What footwear I use to walk or sit changes my body language. Even in Extraction, when Sam, my director, asked me how I felt with my costume and look, I smiled and said, 'I am really enjoying the gold, but I especially love my shoes'. Shiny, pointed with hard heels, which makes a presence when I walk, at least to me."
