kunaal roy kapurSandwiched Perpetually is streaming on SonyLIV.

SonyLIV’s newest net collection, Sandwiched Perpetually, follows the story of newlyweds Sameer (Kunaal Roy Kapur) and Naina (Ahaana Kumra). Their life turns the other way up when their respective dad and mom change into their neighbours, and begin interfering in the whole lot, from their meals to residence décor preferences. The collection, additionally starring Zakir Hussain, Divya Seth Shah, Atul Kulkarni and Lubna Salim, guarantees to supply a humorous tackle trendy Indian households.

Going by the trailer, Kunaal appears to be at his comedic finest within the collection directed by Rohan Sippy. For him, the format of the sitcom is exclusive, and each character has been etched effectively. Although he has returned to the comedy style after profitable stints in collection like Bandish Bandits and TVF Tripling, Kunaal doesn’t thoughts doing comedic roles repeatedly. He tells @GadgetClock_bot.com why he is able to do comedy endlessly, and what made him say sure to Sandwiched Perpetually.

Sandwiched Perpetually appears to be a really quirky title. How do you suppose it justifies the theme of the present?

The title is justified due to the state of affairs that this couple finds themselves in. They got down to make a life on their very own and be this nuclear household solely to search out that they’re sandwiched between each their dad and mom. They thought they might be dwelling life on their very own phrases and could have their very own house, their very own home, however that is what they’ve been struck with. So, that’s why Sandwiched Perpetually.

How did you come on board? What was interesting concerning the collection?

There are a few issues. One is that the format may be very distinctive. They do it overseas on a regular basis with exhibits like Huge Bang Idea, Buddies and Seinfeld, the place they rehearse for just a few days, after which they carry out it in entrance of a reside viewers. It’s just about shot reside in entrance of a reside viewers, and that was the intention with Sandwiched Perpetually as effectively. However sadly, after we had been nearly to begin, coronavirus and the lockdown hit. Then, we needed to decide it up just a few months later with out the reside viewers, however the format stayed the identical: rehearsing it and taking pictures it in a move. All of the actors who’re part of it have had theatre expertise, and I believe that was a giant attraction as a result of to execute this format, you want folks with a barely completely different talent set. Then, the characters that we created had their very own type of quirk and powerful character traits. In the end, what appealed to me was the effectively etched out characters, a singular setup and format, which we haven’t explored sufficient in India.

And, how was it taking pictures amid the pandemic? Was it difficult?

It was very difficult. In fact, we needed to drop the reside viewers concept. However nonetheless, there have been so many individuals collectively in a closed surroundings. So, the Sony staff organized a separate company whose solely job was to ensure everyone seems to be following COVID-19 protocols. Each prop which was given to us, each costume that was given, the whole lot that we had been interacting with was sanitized. Nonetheless, it was robust to work in that surroundings. Actors had been nonetheless with out masks whereas they had been taking pictures, however the poor make-up artist and hairstylist needed to be within the PPE equipment. To be inventive, productive, free and fluid in such a state of affairs the place persons are trying like astronauts round you will not be the simplest factor. Everybody was tensed.

You too are married. Do you additionally really feel married {couples} get sandwiched between their dad and mom? Are you able to relate to the present?

Everybody has been by that. I don’t suppose there’s any married couple who hasn’t skilled getting caught between their dad and mom or what father-in-law needs or what mother-in-law needs or what the husband needs or what the spouse needs. These dynamics play out in everybody’s properties daily. In fact, it performed out in my residence as effectively, and so they’re small, trivial issues.

Recently, the viewers’s style in net collection has been dominated by crime thrillers. Are you apprehensive about Sandwiched Perpetually hanging the chord?

I agree there was quite a lot of stuff on the market which is darkish, gritty and hard-hitting. However that stuff doesn’t get a voice on a standard tv. That’s why we’ve had this sudden outburst of such stuff on the digital medium. It’s essential and nice that such content material is being made, and issues will get increasingly refined as we go alongside. Comedy, nonetheless, has been extra of a tv factor. I don’t suppose we have now quite a lot of comedy on OTT platforms. And, due to the shortage of such easy comedy on OTT platforms, I’m hopeful that Sandwiched Perpetually will work.

You’ve gotten been cherished within the comedy house. Do you are feeling like you find yourself gravitating in direction of to it once more as a result of it is sort of a protected house for you?

No, it’s simply the stuff that’s provided to me. Every little thing that’s provided to me is within the comedy house. Even with my comedic characters, I attempt to make them not simply comedian fluffs. I attempt to give them some depth, and so they have some resonance and relevance to the story. So, though my character could also be comedic, he’s positively an essential a part of the plot and the entire story. So I actually get pleasure from taking part in these characters, but it surely doesn’t imply that that’s the one factor I’ve to supply. In fact, I’d like to do extra drama and perhaps play an antagonist. However, truthfully, I’m lucky to do what I like doing and making a dwelling out of it. So I’m not complaining. If I by no means get a critical position in my life and solely get comedy roles, I’ll be high quality since I’ll nonetheless be getting work.

You had been among the many first few to discover the digital medium. What do you concentrate on its development?

The expansion of OTT platforms was inevitable. With virtually everybody accessing the web, it’s going to get even larger and larger. Nonetheless, I really feel the strains are blurring. The road between the standard of OTT content material and the content material in movies is sort of blurred now. Even net exhibits have movie degree manufacturing. No one is scrounging on funds. The main focus now’s on the fabric. Cash is being spent on the proper areas. That’s why the alternatives for good actors on OTT have grown so dramatically in the previous couple of years. Everybody isn’t just ready for these movie alternatives now. They’ll showcase all their expertise on an OTT platform, and I believe that’s great.
