New Delhi: Actor Jaaved Jaaferi will next be seen in Disney+ Hotstar’s upcoming web series ‘Escaype Live’. He essays the role of Ravi Gupta the CEO of a social media app in the series that is directed by Siddharth Kumar Tewary. Jaaved, who collaborated with Siddharth for the first time, is mighty impressed with him. Jaaved called him a ‘perfectionist’ and someone who understands ‘emotions and psychology behind the characters’.
“When I first met Siddharth, I had read a brief synopsis and I found it of interest. But when I met him and he explored and told me how he approached the series and the various characters that are a part of this, it was quite amazing. I loved his vision, the way he saw this as a writer. And as a Director as well. He has got an eye for detail and perfection. A lot of people as directors would be more technical but being a writer, he understands the emotions and psychology behind the characters and that really helps when a director can give an input to an actor on what he is looking for and how an actor should approach the character,” said Jaaved.
Praising Siddharth further, Jaaved said, “ I think he is one of the few directors that I enjoyed interacting with and developing my character with. I think he has a very bright future and this series is fantastic and will put him on the map!”
