Mumbai, April 14 (IANS) The Chris Hemsworth-starrer digital film “Extraction” casts Priyanshu Painyuli as a drug lord. The actor feels nailing the look of the character is important, because the way you dress up for a particular role can make you behave in a certain way.
For “Extraction”, Priyanshu has tried nailing the gangster look with chunky gold jewellery, gold neck-pieces, armlets and bracelets. He wore a lot of local fabrics including kurtas and silk shirts, which are characteristic of Bangladeshi locals. His attire comes in deep-hued monotones.
“I have always felt the way you dress up as a character makes you behave in a certain way. For me, mainly my shoes matter a lot, what footwear I use to walk or sit changes my body language a bit,” Priyanshu said.
“When Sam (Hargreave), my director, asked me how I felt with my costume and look, I smiled and said I was really enjoying the gold, but I especially loved my shoes — shiny, pointed with hard heels. They made a presence when I walked, at least to me,” he added.
Originally titled “Dhaka”, the film also stars Indian actors Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi and Rudraksh Jaiswal. It revolves around Tyler Rake (essayed by Hemsworth), a fearless, black market mercenary, who embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career when he is enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. Hemsworth shot for the Netflix film in India in 2018. In India, he shot in Ahmedabad and Mumbai.
