Mumbai, April 2 (IANS) Actor Manish Khanna, who plays the role of a lawyer in the show ‘Pushpa Impossible’ has delved into the depth of his character, sharing about the subtle nuances he had incorporated into his performance to make it more intriguing.

For instance, I’ve developed habits like tapping my foot or snapping my fingers during intense moments. These small actions add depth to the character, suggesting a sense of restlessness or impatience that enhances Somnath’s personality.”

“Additionally, I’ve worked on my facial expressions and body language to convey his inner emotions and thoughts, making him more relatable and engaging for the audience. These nuances may seem minor, but they contribute to building a more complex and captivating portrayal of Somnath on screen,” said the ‘Pracchand Ashok fame actor.

The actor known for his role in ‘Naagin’ said that playing such a character involves diving deep into the mindset of the character.

“While I’ve portrayed lawyer roles in the past, embodying Somnath required a different approach. I focused on understanding his motivations, background, and the unique traits that make him intimidating,” he said.

Manish shared: “Additionally, I delved into research to grasp the nuances of courtroom dynamics and legal procedures, ensuring authenticity in my portrayal.”

“Unlike typical soap opera roles, lawyer characters like Somnath deal with powerful and intriguing dialogues, adding depth and complexity to the performance,” he added.
