Director-actor duo Hansal Mehta and Pratik Gandhi announced this year that they will be collaborating once again for a web series based on the life of Mahatma Gandhi. The duo had also delivered the super-ht web series, 'Scam 1992'. The series on Mahatma Gandhi will be based on the writing of historian and author, Ramachandra Guha and will be adapted from his two books, 'Gandhi before India’ and 'Gandhi-The Years that Changed the World'.
Pratik Gandhi has shared that the pre-production or the series is going in full swing. "As far as I am concerned, I have been prepping for this character for the last 8 years. I have been performing as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on stage for the longest time and that too in the format of monologue," the actor told mid-day.com.
The series will mark Pratik's third collaboration with Hansal Mehta after 'Scam 1992' and a segment in' Modern Love (Mumbai)'. Talking about his collaboration with Mehta, Gandhi said, "He is one of my favourite creative collaborators. It is fun to work with him. He is an actor's director and he lets you be. For him also it is a very collaborative process. I feel at home whenever I am working with him."
Pratik, who was last seen playing a stand-up comedian in the film Atithi Bhooto Bhava' is constantly experimenting with the kind of roles that he takes up. "That's a conscious decision that I have taken. I don't want to repeat myself. I want to give the audience different characters and different range also, which challenges me and give some something to learn from," he said.
