Right now, your hair looks so well-kept. How was it hidden during the shoot of the film?

My hair was hidden under silicone and prosthetic and I did it for the character.

Could you please elaborate on the entire process of the prosthetic?

Ever since the look test was done, we knew how the hair is gelled up and prosthetics are made. It takes around 2 to 3 hours for the whole look and we had to do that every day. I had to wash my hair every day after shooting; a lot of shampoos has been used on my hair. The entire process is quite interesting. And if you are enjoying the character that you are playing, you actually do not notice the long grind of it all.

Did the role feel a bit hectic because of all the preparations to be done before the shoot every day?

I felt that initially but you get used to it. The process was something that I had to get used to, but I enjoyed the role so much that basically the process is something that I could ignore in the flow of things.

Do you believe this to be the toughest role of your career yet?

No, that is not true. It is not the toughest but it is one of the toughest. It is tough because of the prosthetic and the add on, the physicality was tough.

You are occasionally seen in comedy films and you are appreciated for it. Will this be in the same genre?

I think this film is a story of a man’s journey as a bald person and how the circumstances in his life are affected by that. Like when he talks to a woman, he is not that confident as a normal person is. There is a message, there is an emotional turmoil, so people will love it.

Have you considered branching out to other genres than comedy?

I am ready for any genre. It is very important that the script connects with the audience. If that happens, I will definitely do it. I am ready, until and unless that character convinces me and I definitely want to do it. The genre is not that significant.

You have worked with Luv Ranjan on two immensely successful films, how is your bond with him now?

Our bond is quite old. Because of Luv Ranjan sir, I am here. On the set, I am like a student in front of him. I learned a lot from him. From the process of script reading until the end of the shoot, he makes it so comfortable for everybody. Also, in personal life, he is present when needed. Like when I call him at 2:00 in the morning, he will pick it up. The bond was gradually made stronger and I try as a younger brother to be there for him as well. The best part is he is always there for us.

How was it working with Abhishek Pathak?

Abhishek Pathak is a family friend. I have known him since I was young. As a director-actor relationship, there was sync between us. He knew what he wanted and I understood clearly what he wanted. There was a connection that helped us execute the scenes quite smoothly. He is a very sweet person and he keeps the set quite relaxed, that is an important thing.

What part of the script attracted you to say yes to the film?

The character Chaman Kohli is what made me want to do this film.

Is there a special message that the audience can find in Ujda Chaman?

There is different judgment, there is a judgment on everything. It is something that is controlled by genetics, you can change it later in life through cosmetic surgery but the oncoming of it is not in your hand. The fact that you do or do not have hair should not matter, your confidence should matter. The main motive of the film is entertainment.

What did you go through for a better understanding of your character Chaman Kohli?

I saw the original 2017 Kannad film Ondu Motteya Kathe. I really like the in-character persona played by the lead. When you see the journey of the story, then the audience would realize the depth of the character. This is what I believed in and went ahead with. The part I liked the best was that he was a very natural and simple man.

Would you like to tell the audience why they should see Ujda Chaman?

Firstly, I would like to say to the audience that the love they gave in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, would be appreciated in our new film Ujda Chaman (2019) where I, Sunny Singh, am playing the lead role as Chaman Kohli. Do watch the film on 1st of November. It is a family film, so bring your family, friends, girlfriend or boyfriend and give us lots of love.
