Anupria Goenka Talks About Her Experience of Working With Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in War
Anupria Goenka discussed her experience of playing undercover agent Aditi in Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff starrer War. Here’s what she had to say.
Anupria Goenka -- who has appeared in superhit films like Tiger Zinda Hai and Padmaavat -- played the character of an undercover agent, Aditi, in Siddharth Anand’s blockbuster War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in lead roles. In an interview with Indianexpress.com, the actress has spoken about her experience of working with the two big Bollywood stars in the action film which has emerged as the biggest Bollywood opener till date. She said, “I guess I’m still in a daze. It hasn’t really sunk in. Anybody would have died to do that part. I keep thanking YRF and Siddharth Anand because it is a big role in that way.”
She also revealed how she met Tiger on the first day of the shoot and thought he was “extremely sweet, polite and very cultured.” On meeting Hrithik, she said “my jaw just dropped” and, “I had this complete fan girl thing. And he was very sweet to come and talk.” She shared how he had read about her character and acted “more like a mentor” for her.
Calling War a “fantabulous experience” and talking about director Siddharth, Anupria said she “really loved working” with him as “he’s a very chilled out director, just like a buddy, very easy going. But he knows what he wants at the same time.”
While responding to a question on whether she approaches her characters differently for different mediums, Anupria said “there is definitely a subtle switch because the energies are a little different,” and added, “A film like War is just so big in scale, they have seasoned actors, a slight difference comes in the atmosphere. And in the web space, you get to dive deep into the character because you have 10 hours to say a story instead of two, so each character’s graph is far more developed.” She further said web series were “far more experimental” and scripts had become “very bold” so there was a “slight difference” but “at a very subconscious level” and “at the end of the day, you are acting.”
