Mumbai: Actor Abhishekh Khan who started his career as a theatre artist, is heaping praises from all across the nation for his digital debut in ‘Bard of Blood’. The Netflix streaming web-series ‘Bard of Blood’ is based on the novel written by Bilal Siddiqui and is a political spy thriller, directed by Ribhu Dasgupta and produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
The 23-year-old actor, Abhishekh Khan is seen playing an impressive character of Nusrat Marri who is the leader of Baluchistan Armed forces (BAF) and he had to go through a lot of hard work and preparation to get into the skin of the character.
Abhishekh explains, he had to literally lose 9 kg and got tanned to get the real look for his role as Nusrat. The actor even underwent gun training & language training to appear as a true 19-year-old Balochi.
When asked Abhishekh about his experience playing Nusrat he adds, “When I got to know about the plot of the show, I was really amazed and was dreaming to be a part of it. And Guess What? As I auditioned for it, I got selected. It was a great opportunity and experience working with powerhouse Actors like Emran Hashmi, Jaideep Ahlawat, Vineet Kumar and Ribhu Dasgupta. I learnt a lot from them”.
I feel lucky to work for such a big production house, the Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment feels like a dream come true. Above all I was on cloud nine when Shahrukh sir wished me and remembered me as Nusrat at the premier.
In the past, Abhishekh was a part of the famous theatre circuit in Mumbai. He also worked as an AD for several T-series and Zee music videos. Abhishekh’s acting in ‘Bard of Blood’ is quite remarkable. After watching his performance some of the leading critics also praised Abhishekh for his performance and feels that the young lad is very promising actor and has a long way to go in the Bollywood industry.
