In Sachin Pathak’s A Easy Homicide, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub performs Manish, a Delhi boy, who’s a ‘loser’ however desires to fulfil his spouse Richa’s (Priya Anand) need to change into wealthy. On the face of it, it seems he’s the sufferer of a grasping spouse, however it quickly turns into clear that he’s a schemer who doesn’t assume twice earlier than killing somebody for cash. And, it’s these various shades of Manish, which Ayyub feels makes the character human. “There isn’t a enjoyable in making a personality simply white or black,” the actor says.
That is Ayyub’s second internet collection after Sachin Pathak’s Rangbaaz Phirse on ZEE5. His expertise within the digital medium has made him consider it as “an important medium which permits not simply actors, however writers and administrators too to work on a wide range of content material”. Nonetheless, the 37-year-old actor doesn’t like how “we are attempting to usher in that star system” right here as properly.
On this interview, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub talks about A Easy Homicide and shares why he thinks ‘censorship of content material doesn’t make sense in any respect’.
What’s that factor of A Easy Homicide’s script which struck you the second you learn it?
Firstly, it’s the style. I loved understanding the style of the collection when Sachin Pathak and Prateek Payodhi narrated it to me. Secondly, the sort of character I used to be provided was thrilling. I haven’t performed a personality who’s a loser at first, and ultimately, he transforms. So, these two have been the principle components.
How did you strategy your character Manish and his varied moods? How a lot Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub did you deliver into Manish or did you simply stick with script?
It’s a mixture of each. Each actor places a little bit of himself in a personality. Additionally, it’s important to improvise the script a bit to get into it solely, particularly a script like A Easy Homicide. It’s such a unusual zone that you should improvise as a result of whenever you’re doing a scene on set, it modifications in line with your co-actors and environment. So, the character of Manish developed whereas I used to be doing it. For example, that breakdown monologue of Manish is improvised. We simply did it in a single take. I knew the character by that point, and we sat all the way down to resolve a graph for him.

There are just a few scenes in A Easy Homicide the place the ambiance goes from comedian to intense and once more comedian inside seconds. How was it so that you can change between feelings in a single explicit scene?
Effectively, it’s what an actor’s job is. This explicit style is thrilling for an actor as a result of at one level you want the viewers to attach together with your character, and the very subsequent second, it’s important to alienate them in order that they will see a bigger image objectively, as an alternative of travelling with only one character and getting emotionally invested. It shouldn’t be cathartic. The viewers ought to be capable of objectively see the journey of the characters as an alternative of simply feeling unhealthy as a result of one thing unlucky occurred with their favorite character.
Your character Manish seems to be each a sufferer and a schemer. Who truly is Manish? Can we take him as a sufferer or a troublemaker?
I feel he’s simply human. These are the issues which make a personality human. There isn’t a enjoyable in making a personality simply white or black. So, at one level, you’ll really feel, ‘oh poor Manish!’ however the different second, you’ll assume, ‘Why is he helpless? Why is he even moving into this?’ Then, his evil aspect additionally comes into play, and he tries to go all berserk. However, amid all this, he’s looking for the which means of his life. It is just after Himmat’s (Sushant Singh) loss of life that he finds a objective and hates himself for being what he’s.
You appear to be sharing nice chemistry with Sushant Singh. Inform us about your off-screen camaraderie with him.
I’ve recognized Sushant Singh for a really very long time. Final yr, throughout CAA-NRC protest, we had a superb interplay and we share comparable sort of ideas and understanding. Additionally, he’s my senior from Kirori Mal Faculty, Delhi College, and we have been in the identical dramatic society, The Gamers. So, that connection is there. We’ve comparable work ethic and the identical sort of temperament. We have been fairly comfy with one another after we met on the set, and that off-screen chemistry exhibits on the display as properly.
Yashpal Sharma, Amit Sial and Sushant Singh are ace performers. Right here too they give the impression of being so easy. After working with them, what’s your take about them?
I’ve labored with Yashpal Sharma earlier too in Tubelight, and we share the identical alma mater. He’s my NSD (Nationwide College of Drama) senior too. I’ve been his fan since childhood and it’s all the time a studying expertise working with him. He improvises so properly and has impeccable comedian timing. Sial is my buddy, and we bought to spend so much of time right here. We loved working with one another.
We’ve seen you play intense characters as amazingly as you do comedy. Between the 2, which is more difficult for you?
It’s tough to say which of the 2 is tougher. The primary level is to make a reference to the viewers, and should you reach that, individuals will chuckle with you and in addition cry with you. I’d say each genres have their very own challenges.
What are your ideas in regards to the digital medium? Do you assume it’s giving actors an opportunity to play extra various roles?
Undoubtedly. It’s a nice alternative not just for actors but in addition writers and administrators. Earlier, issues have been made, however one line was repeated time and again – ‘It’s not tough to make a movie, what’s tough is to launch it.’ That’s one factor which is getting solved due to the digital medium. A lot content material is being created now, that everybody wants new writers, administrators and actors. At present, it’s in nice form. However, the issue is, right here too we are attempting to usher in that star system. I feel the lesser we discuss stars and extra in regards to the content material, the higher it’s.
And, what’s your tackle censorship of content material on the digital medium?
Censorship doesn’t make any sense in any respect. Censorship is a colonial legislation which was launched by the Britishers after 1857 to curb the independence motion. It’s unlucky that we have now nonetheless saved it. Now, the authorities, who’re afraid of artwork, thought individuals can categorical themselves freely on OTT, so they’re attempting to cripple that as properly.
