Saqib Saleem to get an interesting look in Rangbaaz
Saqib Saleem recently started shooting for Rangbaaz and is looking forward to displaying his acting chops as a young and deadly gangster.
Post Race 3, Saqib Saleem is set to make his digital debut. He plays a rough and tough character in the web series, Rangbaaz. The show is inspired by the true story of a gangster in the hinterlands.
Interestingly, the actor will be seen sporting a moustache. He tried out different looks but finally settled for it instead of a beard. Saqib Saleem says since he had never sported one before, it was interesting to have the facial hair.
"To be honest, I have never had a moustache in my life. So just to have that, was very interesting. I couldn't recognise myself for a few days. I think as an actor, it did put me in a different space," Saqib told IANS.
Talking more about his character, he shared: "Although the process was very interesting, I made sure that I stopped working out because my character wasn't supposed to look very muscular. I did a lot of cardio because there are different phases in the show."
"I have to look like a man of different ages at different times. I wanted to make sure that I looked like that. My character is a gangster. There are shades of grey, but you will definitely find some heart in the character," he added.
