I have great expectations from 'Alag': Akshay Kapoor

Jun 14, 2006 Swati R. Chaudhary

Mumbai, June 14 (IANS) This go-getter is just two films old and yet defines versatility and adaptability in a different light.

After playing a young dreamer in his debut film "Popcorn Khao! Mast Ho Jao", Akshay Kapoor returns with "Alag", in which he plays a guy gifted with super powers with no hair on his body.

It has been a drastic transition for Akshay, reports Bollywood Trade.

"I play an 18-year-old guy with innocence of a 10-year-old. He is intellectual and unique. I wanted to understand my character in totality, which is why I shaved my eyebrows, locked myself in a room and disconnected my phone and TV, with absolutely no contact with the outside world," said Akshay.

"I wanted to understand the concept of isolation, to be able to do justice to my character. I did lots of research to get into the skin of the character. I also read two books on isolation 'Lord of the Fly' and 'Life of Pi'."

Working with a brilliant photographer and the beautiful Dia Mirza must have been great.

"My expectations are high though I am nervous also. Dia is a seasoned actress, and has always been helpful and encouraging," Akshay said.
