Director Vardhan Ketkar, who is gearing up for the release of his directorial debut film `Gumraah`, shared that he was heavily impressed by the film`s male lead, Aditya Roy Kapur, for his in-depth study of his dual roles and how much work he puts into his characters.
The director shared that Aditya`s intensity and flare were a boon for the film as it`s a thriller.
Speaking about the huge responsibility and how the actors made his job easier, Vardhan said, `Directing Aditya was an exciting proposition, from the get-go, I knew that his intensity, flare, and conviction towards the craft were going to be a boon for the film as it`s a thriller. I`ve always loved films with double roles or split personalities. So, when it came to the dual role, what I enjoyed the most was designing the distinct characteristics of the two characters`.
