Pranav Sachdeva enjoys seducing married woman in 'Delhiciously Chekhov'

Television actor Pranav Sachdeva is on a different kind of high. A simpleton in real life, he remarks that he's "thoroughly enjoying being devilish in reel life."

 

After playing a double-faced character in the daily soap Agar Tum Saath Ho on the revamped Zindagi channel, Pranav is again playing dual roles in a new play called Delhiciously Chekhov, starring veteran actor Tom Alter.

Being staged exclusively in the Indian capital, Delhiciously Chekhov is a tribute to Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, the Russian playwright and short-story writer, who is considered to be one of the greatest writers of short fiction in playwright history.

 

"I play a father in the first half who wants to make a man out of his 19-year old son and so, takes him to a woman," says Pranav. "As if that is not eww enough, the second half of the play has me playing a notorious bachelor, giving a live and practical demonstration on how to seduce a beautiful young woman with a little help from her husband."

 

"I know what you would be thinking. That this fellow is the scum of the earth. But to me, a good actor is a person who can even play that," Pranav quips like a smart alec, defining his most obnoxious roles.

 

The play's director Raj Upadhyay praises the actor for being able to carry off roles that may make the audience feel uneasy in their seats. "Pranav creates fire on stage with his presence and energy. He explores his characters like someone is finding water in a desert. His sense of improvisation is remarkable."

 

Turns out, Delhiciously Chekhov is not the only play the actor is doing. Come March, and Pranav will be playing the role of another veteran actor Asrani's son in a comic play called The Makkhi-Choos.

LION tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, who at 5 years old gets lost on a train, accidentally separated from his family, and struggles to survive alone on the streets of Kolkata before ultimately being adopted by an Australian couple. Twenty-five years later, armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, he sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.

 

Dev Patel, who plays the adult Saroo, was woken up to a phone call from his publicist sharing the good news. "I literally just woke up to this news. I am so humbled to be acknowledged in a category alongside these incredible gentlemen. I'm feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude for my real family back home in London and in India, and for my "Lion" family, especially for the leader of our pride, director Garth Davis. The best thing about this though is that my mom is going to be really f-ing happy."

 

Nicole Kidman, who plays Sue Brierley, Saroo’s adoptive mother was ecstatic about the news, “This nomination is even more emotional and I’m more grateful than ever before. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press!”

 

Producers Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, and Angie Fielder commented: “We are so pleased and humbled by the nominations this morning. It’s been a privilege to tell this extraordinary true story about unconditional love of family and its ability to transcend decades and oceans. We are overjoyed that the HFPA shares in the triumph of Saroo’s emotional journey to find home.”

 

Composers Dustin O’Halloran and Hauschka commented: “We awoke early this morning by the exciting news, in the same house in Los Angeles where we wrote most of the score to LION, so it feels full circle. We are extremely honored by this nomination and also to be a part of this film which has so much meaning for us, and hopefully for others. Everyone who worked on this film put so much heart into it and it’s wonderful to receive this esteemed acknowledgment.”

 

TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein commented: “We are thrilled by all the nominations. It’s always an honor to achieve such recognition from the HFPA. Everyone who worked on our films - LION, SING STREET, and Dimension's GOLD has so much passion and dedication for their films and I’m so proud of the incredible work they’ve done.”

 

The film reveals that an astonishing 80,000 children go missing in India each year and over 11 million children are living on the streets alone. TWC and See-Saw Films have partnered with non-profit organizations Magic Bus and Railway Children to launch the #LIONHEART campaign in the hopes of helping the millions of vulnerable children in India, and preventing stories like Saroo’s from happening again.
