Actor SaqibSaleem, who will soon be seen in Amole Gupte`s directorial venture “HawaaHawaai”, says he was totally moved by the film`s story, which is full of emotions and depth.
“I have never read such a script full of emotions…real emotions. Genuinely, I was moved by the script of `HawaaHawaai`,” Saqib said here Sunday, during the shoot of a music video for the film.
“I felt `this is the story I want to be a part of anyhow`. I thought as an actor it will be a huge challenge for me,” he added.
The 25-year-old, who plays a young skating coach in the film, said that as an actor, he found the depth and turmoil of his character in the film very challenging.
“So far whatever characters I have played in my earlier films, including in `Bombay Talkies`, they have been urban, cool but this character (in `HawaaHawaai`) for me has a lot of depth,” said Saqib, who has been part of films like “MujhseFraaandshipKaroge”, “Mere Dad Ki Maruti” and “Bombay Talkies”.
“I play my age in the film but there is a lot of turmoil that my character goes through in the film. For me, that was a challenge,” he added.
