Sony SAB is all set to launch the most awaited sci-fi show Hero- Gayab Mode On, with never seen before effects and magnificent characters, featuring Abhishek Nigam in the lead role. It is an incredible journey of a common stuntman, Veer, and his mission to search for his father.
The journey, at each step, gets increasingly fascinating as Veer first chances upon the miraculous power of invisibility through a ring, transforming him into â€˜Heroâ€™, which also happens to be desired by evil aliens.
Abhishek Nigam has been training really hard for this exceptional role and talks about this unique experience as he says, â€œAs an actor, I like to do complete justice to the role I am playing. In Hero- Gayab Mode On, my character, Veer, is of a stunts double in movies whereas, the superhero role also requires me to do a lot of stunts. I wanted to do all my stunts by myself and make my characters look as real as possible.â€
He adds, â€œI have always been into athletics as I am a former tennis player and also used to dance. However, because of my studies, I had to put a break on all of my extra activities and hobbies. Now, here came the challenge â€“ since I have not been a very active sports person, I have lost my flexibility and strength to a certain extent. When I got this role, my first aim was to get that back. For the same, and to take it to another level, I have been learning flips, kickboxing and parkour.â€
â€œIt has been such an exciting experience, while I have also been hurt so many times in the process. I am loving every minute of it and trying my level best to do justice to the role,â€ Abhishek Nigam says.
