'Quality script matters'

'Quality script matters'


The National Award winning actor says that it is the script and not the language of the film, which is a deciding factor for him.
"I have never accepted any random offers just for the sake of being a regular face in the film industry, be it Hindi or Marathi cinema. Quality over quantity, to be precise," he said adding that doing meaningful cinema is more important to him than the number of releases.

The actor's latest film "Natrang" which releases this week, sees him essay the role of Guna Kagalkar, a wrestler as well as a nachya (a man who plays a woman in tamasha, one of the oldest folk arts of Maharashtra).
"Such films motivate me and I love such challenges. Guna was definitely a big challenge for me," he said about his character Guna Kagalkar, an amateur wrestler whose dream is to play the king in a tamasha.

"While essaying the role of Guna, it was necessary that I involve myself completely in the movie, both physically as well as mentally. I had to work hard to build my body to play Guna the wrestler and to play a nachya later in the film I was required to lose weight in a month-and-a-half," he said.

"Every artiste goes through the difficult phase where he has to choose between family duties and passion for his dream and Guna epitomises all of their travails, all of their dreams," the actor said.
Kulkarni credits debutante director Ravi Jadhav for bringing back the Tamasha genre back into Marathi movies after a gap of several years.
"Ravi's study on films and observations about life is deeper. He has presented the story in a beautiful, meaningful yet crisp way. He studied Dr Anand Yadav's novel by the same before taking up this film," the actor said.
