Director Vardhan Ketkar, who is gearing up for the release of his directorial debut film 'Gumraah', shared that he was heavily impressed by the film's male lead, Aditya Roy Kapur, for his in-depth study of his dual roles and how much work he puts into his characters.

The director shared that Aditya's intensity and flare were a boon for the film as it's a thriller.

Speaking about the huge responsibility and how the actors made his job easier, Vardhan said, 'Directing Aditya was an exciting proposition, from the get-go, I knew that his intensity, flare, and conviction towards the craft were going to be a boon for the film as it's a thriller. I've always loved films with double roles or split personalities. So, when it came to the dual role, what I enjoyed the most was designing the distinct characteristics of the two characters'.

'Gumraah' is the remake of the Tamil superhit film 'Thadam', and it also stars Mrunal Thakur, and Ronit Roy in pivotal roles.

I'm sure you'll enjoy and appreciate that in the film'.
