Ever since Abhishek Bachchan as Harshad Mehta in the feature film The Big Bull started streaming ,critics and audiences have been comparing him to Pratik Gandhi’s Harshad Mehta in the webseries Scam 1992.
Pratik feels the comparison is unfair. “I don’t think any two individuals especially artists can be or should be compared . As we are different human beings. The way we think, feel, emote is bound to be different. So there is no sense in any comparison. The two performances should be seen in reference to the script and the character requirement for the same .”
What is Pratik’s take on another film on Harshad Mehta so soon after the first? “I m yet to watch The Big Bull . But it’s exciting to see a new take on the same story.”
Coming up next from Pratik Gandhi? “I am doing a web series with Tigmanshu Dhuliya based on Vikas Swarup’s novel Six Suspects.You and I had discussed this earlier.It is now confirmed though they haven’t announced it yet.”
Pratik is also excited about a feature film . “It’s called Woh Ladki Hai Kahan with Taapsee Pannu being produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur. . There are a couple of other web series and films about which some announcement should come soon.”
