The actor will soon be sporting several vintage items and yesteryear's looks for a new project.
Tahir Raj Bhasin will soon be seen in Milan Luthria's OTT directorial debut ‘Sultan Of Delhi' on Disney+ Hotstar. The actor, who has been a part of several series this year, will share the screen space with Anjum Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Nishant Dahiya, Anupriya Goenka, Mouni Roy, Harleen Sethi and Mehreen Pirzada.
The series, set to release on October 13, is anticipated to reimagine the charm of old India and create a visual spectacle on-screen. Bhasin will essay the role of a young, handsome and passionate 'Arjun Bhatia', who is a quintessential hero from the 60s era.
Sharing details about his new role, Bhasin says that he took inspiration from the yesteryear actors.
"For inspiration James Dean and Robert Redford were major international influences. Closer to home Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmender ji were iconic benchmarks of style from the 60’s and 70’s. The role allowed me to sport many vintage items like classic watches, shoes and more, something I really enjoyed,” he explained.
Apparently, the makers took upon themselves to get the actors the right look.
“One of the most exciting things about working with Milan Luthria is seeing how much detail he puts into planning, the style and the looks. I remember we spent weeks just getting the hair style right for Arjun Bhatia. Celebrity hair stylist Hakim Aalim was called in and after a few trials and hair cuts we hit upon a perfect look. The costume designers Jia and Malika did endless rounds of costume trials to get jeans with the right vintage cut and the right vintage jackets," he added.
Arjun’s outfits across the series carry basic solid colours, such as black, white and shades of brown which allowed Bhasin to blend in perfectly with the retro era of the 60s.
