Meezaan Jafri, who made his debut in Bollywood with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Malaal’, opened up about being launched by the filmmaker and the things he has learnt from him.
Talking about the same, Meezaan said, “The fact that a person like Sanjay Leela Bhansali had launched you, that gives you a lot of confidence. He’s such a great artist and filmmaker and he believes in you. That gives you a little bit of a push to believe in yourself as well. And I’m a very competitive person so I always have very high expectations for myself. I’m never satisfied with what I do. Even if someone sees something I’ve done and they tell me that I’m really good I’m just like “Okay, I could do much better”. That’s what I’ve learnt from Sanjay sir – to try and give it your best.”
Spilling some beans on the best piece of advice he has received from Bhansali, Meezaan told Filmfare, “There are too many things so I can’t talk about one thing specifically. He has taught me about editing shots, technicality on set and something as small as, “hold that position and the mood till the director says cut, even if you finish the line and the scene is over”. You keep that going because you never know if it’s going to be those two or three extra frames that the director is going to use and will be helpful for him or her on the edit table. There are so many other things whether it’s about the expression in your eyes, not blinking, holding intensity and so on.”
On the work front, he will next be seen in ‘Yaariyaan 2’.
