Initially, my character comes across as a dangerous guy but slowly he becomes friend with kids and he tells them stories about ‘Ghost of Sultanpur and help them in their mission of ghost hunt. Moses is a loner, skeptical and cynical in the show always staying an alone in a ferry. The only clue Sujoy da gave me is Benjamin from Animal farm and then my research started for the characterization and I want to thank Nirmal Das one of most talented actor who lately suffered from schizophrenia I did spend some time with him long time back before he was out of sight 4-5 years ago it was a long association that came in the journey of Moses and we don’t know where he is, l really owe him to develop further the character of Moses ( Thanks, Nirmal we all love you and miss you )In the show, Sujoy (Ghosh) has shown how these qualities have inculcated in him.” I really thank to the whole team of Typewriter whole cast and crew. Thanks, Sujoy Da and Thanks Netflix India. Had great time shooting Typewriter. 3hours every day to get a look of Moses thanks Simone who hails from London, it was like meditation.
