Arfi’s innovative role in 'Fugly'

Arfi Lamba was first noticed in the Oscar winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and then a powerful role in ‘Prague’. Now his ambitious venture ‘Fugly’ is up for release and we had an interaction with him about his new film. Here is what the star in making has to say.

Tell us about your journey to filmdom.
I come from a small village in Punjab and then came to Delhi for further studies but was more interested in movies and one day ultimately I packed my bags to come to Mumbai with dreams in my eyes but they were soon shattered and I had to do theater with Dinesh Thakur’s group and go through many rounds of auditions.

How did you bag ‘Fugly’?
I came to know that auditions were on for the film and I made it there. I was auditioned thrice and soon landed in the role of Aditya, all thanks to the producers Akshay Kumar and Ashwini Yardi of Grazing Goat Pictures and director Kabir Sadanand.

What is the film about?
‘Fugly’, directed by Kabir Sadanand, is shot extensively in Delhi and the breathtaking locations of Leh. It is a story of four friends; Dev, Devi, Gaurav and Aditya and about their carefree bunch, at the threshold of their lives, get caught in a ‘Fugly’ incident, which sucks them slowly into the big bad world of corruption, politics and when a hard hitting bad cop gets after this group of friends.

Describe your character.
I play Aditya, a mild mannered miserly middle class guy who gets bold and speaks his mind out in the climax of the film.

How did you like working on the film?
We had a blast since we all were young like Mohit Marwah, boxer Vijender Singh, Kiara Advani, and Jimmy Shergill. Also Kabir Sadanand was fun to work with since he gave us a lot of space to enact our scenes and the final outcome has come out pretty good.
