In Awe Of Randeep Hooda: ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’ – A Monument Of Hard Work. ft. Jay Patel, Privileged Participant

In today’s daily dose of hustle and bustle, very few are successfully able to balance between multiple walks of life. Well, one such individual is Jay Patel. The talented and maverick actor who’s currently earning a tremendous amount of praise and appreciation for his impeccable portrayal of Shyamji Krishna Varma in the Randeep Hooda movie ‘Swatantra Veer Savarkar’  is winning hearts all over the country. Apart from being a passionate actor and Producer, Jay Patel is an Indian American investor and philanthropist who focuses on solving problems through innovation and entrepreneurship.

As far as the movie is concerned, Jay is currently receiving appreciation from all over the country not just for his acting mettle but also for his transformation. On-screen, he’s simply magnificent and unrecognisable, such has been the transformation. Everything, right from the way he has moulded his look and appearance to look older and poles apart from what he is in reality deserves a bow and respect. On being asked to take us a little through his transformation journey, Jay Patel shares and we quote,

“Well, all thanks to a wonderful co-actor and director like Randeep Hooda, the brief was clear right from the very beginning. I knew right from the word ‘go’ that was going to be one of my most challenging films ever. I had to ensure that in my avatar of the honourable Shyamji Krishna Varma, even my family isn’t able to recognise me or find any element of Jay. While the makeup and other stuff can make you look older, a lot of research and in-depth analysis needs to go to minute details like body language, poise, motion, voice modulation and a lot of other things. Also physically, the task was quite challenging and interesting. I had to modify my diet accordingly to look a certain shape in order to ensure there’s authenticity. My biggest goal was to ensure my transformation helps me in my goal which was to bring authenticity without any form of caricature. As an artiste, I am satisfied that I could do justice to the faith entrusted upon me and well, all this appreciation after all the hard work and transformation, be it physical and mental feels good to hear. All this only motivates me to work harder and do even better in my next films.”

Well, kudos to Jay Patel for highlighting the importance of both physical and mental transformation when it comes to pulling off such a mammoth character of such historical significance. Here’s congratulating him big time for the astounding success of the movie and for being such a force to reckon with in the movie as a prime contributor. Wishing him more success going forward in the future. On the work front, Jay Patel is set to have many other interesting projects happening at his end, the official announcements of which will happen soon as per the ideal timelines. Stay tuned for more updates.
