Last seen in ‘Kathmandu Connection 2’, Actor Amit Pahel has again made
audiences mesmerised with his amazing acting skills in the recently released
‘Crackdown Season 2’. His character Sanjay Shah aka Firoz, hides his real
identity as a music teacher with an aim to kill Indians. The series stars Saqib
Saleem, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Iqbal Khan, Freddy Daruwala, Waluscha De Sousa and
Ankur Bhatia in the lead roles.
Amit bonded really well with the actor Saqib Saleem on set, courtesy to
their mutual love for Haryana. Speaking on the same, he revealed “Saqib and I
bonded over Haryana and its culture. Me coming from Haryanvi background and
Saqib who has a lot of friends back there in Rohtak, we had so much to talk
about and it resulted breaking the ice between us. When I first met Saqib on
our first reading session, I was mesmerized by his aura. He has such a positive
attitude towards everything. After the reading session I went up to meet him.
When I said hello, he in return greeted me with “Bhai”, it was so kind and
generous of him to say that. I felt that I know him since ever. When we got
onto the floor, I learned so many things from Saqib such as how to be calm
while shooting because sometimes it can be a very intimidating place to be at.
Especially when we’re shooting some intense sequences from the series, he
helped everyone to stay calm with his witty nature and great sense of humour.
We also talked about the nuances that are required for the action sequence
because it was my first time with such a project with so much action in it.”
“I told him about my upcoming projects and asked him for some advice.
Without any hesitation he suggested a few very good insights that are
definitely gonna help me in future. Not for a moment did he make me feel that
he is a big star. He’s an extraordinary co-actor. One would feel so secure
while shooting with him. He lets you be and if anything goes wrong, he’s there
to help you. At last, I would like to say he's a gem of a person.” Pahel
