Abhishek Bachchan, who leads season 2 of Prime Video’s ‘Breathe: Into the shadows’, recently talked about playing a dual role in the show. The season premiered on November 9.
The actor, who plays the characters of Avinash and J, said:
“I was equipped with fantastic writers, and a director who is so on the ball. I have been interacting with Mayank for four years and I still cannot think of an instance where I asked him a question and he didn’t have an answer for it.
“That’s how prepared he is. Mayank and I spent several days prepping for everything because we wanted everything pre decided so that on set we were just executing the scenes because there is so much to explore, we didn’t want to waste time exploring on set.
“We have spent countless days working out Avinash’s and J’s character and why they would do certain things, how they would be different but similar at the same time. We plotted maybe how 10 years down the line how they would still be. So there was in-depth work that Mayank made me do on the characters”.
Season 2 of ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows’ is directed by Mayank Sharma. He is also the co-creator, along with Arshad Syed, Vikram Tuli, Priya Saggi & Abhijeet Deshpande.
Apart from Bachchan, the new season features Amit Sadh, Nithya Menen, Naveen Kasturia, Saiyami Kher, and Ivana Kaur in key roles.
