that behind every successful man there is a woman who helps his career fly the example is turned around here Behind Mary’s success in the boxing ring there was Onler’s whole-hearted supported He is not just a husband but a friend and motivator as well Casting coup I got a call from the casting director of the film who asked me to give an audition for this role After a series of auditions and various look tests I was called for multiple meetings at the production house where I met director Omung Kumar my co-star Priyanka Chopra and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the first time After a month long process I was finally informed that I was on board and will be playing KOnler’s part in the film Post that I did some research to understand my character along with Omung apart from the regular script reading sessions and preparatory workshops I also saw a few reference tapes and learned Manipuri language Stepping stone I am a Delhi based Jat boy who does not come from a film background Both my schooling and college was done in the same city and I graduated from the College of Vocational Studies (Delhi University) Since childhood I had been quite active in extra-curricular activities and was involved in everything from theatre to elocution I guess that’s where the acting bug caught me I joined theatre and began training and performing with Act One group Fortunately my parents especially my father never stopped me from chasing my dreams He asked me to concentrate on work that interests me with complete faith and passion A few years later I shifted to Mumbai and joined Neena Gupta’s group Sahaj Later I started working under Naseeruddin Shah sir’s Motley group That was the time when I was noticed and was offered modelling assignments Even today I have continued the process of learning under Naseer sir’s guidance First shot Fortunately I had understood the working technique of Omung and Priyanka and the pre-shoot workshops helped in breaking the ice There was no nervousness at all and I confidently faced the camera for the scene that was shot in a stadium I had to cheer for Mary who is fighting it out in the boxing ring But I must admit facing the camera to play a real-life character was a challenge and I wanted to stay true to the responsibility given to me The takeaway The story of Mary Kom itself is such a big inspiration that there was a lot to learn at every step Also having a superstar like Priyanka for support was the biggest thing I could have asked for She would patiently rehearse each scene with me without any complaints and made me feel comfortable Both Priyanka and Omung would offer casual acting tips in between shots and since it comes from experienced people it came handy Stumbling block Although a few scenes were demanding especially the emotional ones I took it up as a challenge and worked things out Apart from that the entire shooting process was very smooth as I had worked very hard to do perfect justice to my role Role model I look up to my mentor Naseeruddin Shah whom I think is one of the best actors in world cinema There is a lot to learn from him in every department and he is certainly the best role

Mohan | Published: September 19 2012 2:26 am Related News In his address to the Planning Commission on SaturdayPrime Minister Manmohan Singh underlined the importance of taking risks in initiating new reforms and accelerating Indias economic growth The theme of risks and rewards is back in the PMs vocabulary The last one heard of this was when Singh tried to calm the critics of the historic India-US civil nuclear initiative more than half a decade ago Responding to charges that the nuclear deal would undermine Indias foreign policy and national securitySingh pointed to the experience of reforms in the first decade of the 1990swhen he opened the Indian economy to globalisation despite the massive fears at home Taking some risk then put the nation on a high growth path and elevated its international position The PMs readiness to take risks againone hopesis not limited to the making of economic policy Indias diplomacyespecially towards its neighbourscould do with some risk-taking of the kind Singh demonstrated in transforming relations with the United States during his first term as PM Through his tenure as PMSingh consistently articulated a bold vision for regionalism in the subcontinent Persisting with the good neighbourly policy that he had inherited from Atal Bihari VajpayeeSingh added a vital economic dimension to it and made some big political moves But at critical momentsSingh preferred caution to courage Consider the many paradoxes of his Pakistan policy Few prime ministers before him have invested this kind of effort into transforming relations with Pakistan Yet he has tied himself in knots over the simple question of making a visit across the border Vajpayeeaccused of leading a Hindu nationalist governmenttravelled to Pakistan twice in his six years at the helm (1998-2004) But Singh is still wringing his hands in the ninth calendar year of his prime ministership The secularist Congress appears to have deep reservations about Singhs visit to Pakistan Vajpayee had to confront similar objections from his BJP colleagues in the cabinetnot to mention the RSS Yet he took risks by defying the conservatives in his party while framing his Pakistan policy Singh went much farther than Vajpayee in exploring solutions to such thorny issues as Siachen and Sir Creek He embarked on substantive negotiations on the Kashmir questionfor the first time in four decadeswith Pakistan Singh has also negotiated a road map for the normalisation of bilateral trade with Pakistan and concluded an agreement to liberalise a four decades-old restrictive visa regime with Pakistan Compared to what has already been donethe case for visiting Pakistan is an open and shut one Singhs reluctance to take risks has been even more tragic in the case of Bangladesh Having found a forward-looking partner in Sheikh Hasinawho became the prime minister of Bangladesh in 2008Singh launched a bold effort to resolve all outstanding issues with Dhaka in 2010 At the very moment this unprecedented effort was to bear fruit during his visit to Bangladesh last September Singh held backunwilling as he was to confront the tantrums of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee As the prime minister of the republicSingh had every right to sign the Teesta River waters agreement with Bangladesh that was crafted with much care Yet the PM buckled As a resulta transformative moment in the ties with Bangladesh was lost So was a transit agreement with Dhaka that would have significantly contributed to economic growth in West Bengal and in the Northeastern states One important consequence of Singhs hesitations on Pakistan and Bangladesh has been the weakening of the PMs sole prerogative to conduct of Indias external affairs He has let the bureaucracy and state leaders exercise a veto over foreign policy decisions If he accepts his own advice on taking calculated political risks and showing some political courage in defence of the national interestthe PM can easily reclaim his leadership on the foreign policy front Announcing a visit to Pakistan will put pressure on the establishments of both sides to produce some substantive outcomes On Bangladeshthe PM must look for the earliest opportunity to sign the Teesta and transit agreements that will boost the prospects for the eastern subcontinent as a whole To be surebold initiatives towards neighbours will draw political flak But it is a controversy that the PM would want to welcome For it is a rare opportunity to contrast the PMs bold vision for the nation and the region with the crass opportunism of the opposition parties The PM can count on the BJP to oppose the Pakistan visit (the party has no desire to recall the visits of Vajpayee and Advani to Pakistan) and the Trinamool Congress to simulate outrage But the PM can also bet on the left parties support for his regional peace initiatives Singh can gamble even bigger on China While there are many strategic contentions between Delhi and Beijingon the economic front there is much complementarity waiting to be exploited The PM should actively attract Chinese FDI into infrastructure development and allow Beijing to develop special economic zones in India The left parties might oppose FDI from the West but will not utter a squeak against Chinese money The PM could go a step further and offer to develop joint projects with China in our neighbouring countries to promote connectivity and integration within the subcontinent as well as between South Asia and the abutting regions Put simplytaking bold diplomatic initiatives
