My greatest motive for accepting the function of Harshad Mehta was director Hansal Mehta. My producers Applause Leisure and Sameer Nair had been godsent. I really like taking part in real-life characters. I’ve performed fairly various them on stage together with Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. It’s all the time a problem to painting a real-life character particularly one as a lot within the public area as Harshad Mehta.”
There have been numerous layers to Harshad Mehta’s character which Pratik obtained drawn to. “I like taking part in characters with complicated human traits. Additionally, that is the most important undertaking that I’ve completed in my life. All these causes had been greater than sufficient incentive to do the undertaking.”

By the point we began capturing, I had an enormous stomach and quite a lot of fats on my face. And naturally the trademark Harshad Mehta mustache.”
He took a aware resolution to not seem like Harshad. “Wanting just like the real-life character definitely makes the actor’s job simpler particularly when it’s somebody as well-known as Harshad Mehta. He liked being within the limelight. One in all his images along with his Lexus remains to be fashionable. Whereas making the collection on Harshad we took a aware resolution that I received’t attempt to seem like the true Harshad. Moderately I’d give attention to his behaviour, angle, and character, be it his helplessness initially, confidence, then over-confidence to the extent of letting his conceitedness and ego get the higher of his judgment. Hansal was clear about not caricaturing Harshad, however slightly imbibing his traits into my character.”
Being a Gujarati helped Pratik perceive Harshad higher. “It helped me to grasp his thought course of, his desires, a knack for understanding cash issues, the entrepreneurial spirit. And that willpower to be self-employed. That’s a Gujarati trait. Although I have to confess that I come from a household of educationists. Nobody in my household is an entrepreneur.”
