Ram Kapoor on shooting in Covid era: Feel hesitant but not fearful

Mumbai, Aug 15 (IANS) Actor Ram Kapoor is not scared to return to the studios to shoot in the time of Covid-19 pandemic, but he admits that he is a little hesitant.
Kapoor will be back at work to wrap up his remaining portions in the new web series “Abhay 2”. He plays a pivotal role in the second season.
“I am normally not a fearful person, but it is also true that over the past few months, what we have seen due to the pandemic, it is a very different situation altogether. So, now that shooting has started, we will shoot for the next 10 days or so to finish this season. So, we have to go out. It is our commitment. In the post Covid-19 era, I do not feel fearful but I am a little hesitant at times. We are shooting in a close set and only removing masks when required. We are sanitising more, keeping distance and following every other rule,” Kapoor told IANS.
He says, being an actor, there is little room for fear or hesitation. “You see, I am a performer, an actor. It is a demanding job where one has to keep any element of fear and hesitation aside when the camera rolls, when I am the character on-screen. So, that is how I, rather all of us are handling the shooting process in the unlock phase,” Kapoor added.
“Abhay 2” is a crime thriller that has Kunal Khemmu playing the title role of Abhay Pratap Singh.
Asked about his character, Kapoor said: “It is really tough to share anything about the character because it is one of the secretive characters. In fact, my character does not have a name, one cannot really put an adjective to describe this character. He might come across as a complete psychopath but there is a story, a cause behind his madness. It is a convoluted character.”
The show “Abhay 2” is directed by Ken Ghosh and it also features Chunky Panday, Asha Negi, Nidhi Singh, Bidita Bag, Raghav Juval, Indraneil Sengupta and Asheema Vardhan. The show is streaming on Zee5.
