I’m very a lot the definition of an outsider,’says actor and aspiring musician Alexx ONell, who was final seen within the net sequence Aarya, on being requested concerning the present ‘insider and outsider’ debate raging after Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide.
“From the day I started my career as an actor in India, I was always cast as an outsider, a foreigner in the story line. Having said that, it’s not that I am offended by it but rather enjoy playing each role that I have been given. Roles are written for you. Aarya could easily not have Bob’s character; in the same way, my upcoming movie Roohi Afzana could easily not have a role for me,” he provides.
At the identical time, Alexx, who performed Bob in Sushmita Sen-starrer net sequence Aarya, says, “An actor always has a choice of being typecast. I consciously worked less to avoid repetitive roles. I had done Jhansi Ki Rani for television and refused to repeat the roles when the films were made about it. I have done three to four projects a year; it could have been much more had I not been selective. I am satisfied with my career graph and take pride in having worked in six different languages, having done 35 feature films in my 13-year-long career.”
A liking for music, which he by no means took severely till this 12 months, led him to launch a tune, Still On My Mind, which options Shama Sikander, a month earlier than Aarya. “I love working on rock music,” he says. Ask him to decide on between appearing and music, and he quips, “I can answer it this way; there is a role on my bucket list, to play a musician in a movie. I loved Rockstar and would love to do a movie like that.”
In his upcoming films, aside from Roohi Afzana, there may be Golondaaj, his third Bengali mission, with famous person Dev Adhikari. As the lockdown gave him respiratory area to work on the type of music he needs to advertise, he’ll quickly be releasing his subsequent tune titled 20 days. Currently in Netherlands spending time along with his mom, he says, “It has been the longest that I have spent in the country since birth. On the personal front, I am enjoying my time with my mother. She is 75 years old and I think it is important to be with her.”
