The trailer of Prime Video’s upcoming crime drama Dahaad starring Sonakshi Sinha in a never-seen-before role recently hit the tube. Featuring an engaging cat-and-mouse chase between the actress and popular actor Vijay Varma, this crime drama is the story of an underdog cop on a mission to solve the suspicious deaths of 27 women. It seems that Vijay Varma had to prep to play the character of a mysterious antagonist with malicious energy which he not only had to convey through his acting but also through his carefully crafted clothes and his body language too had to be nuanced.
Dahaad: Vijay Varma was keen on having ‘reptile-like’ energy in his costumes; says, “My shirts create an illusion of a chameleon or a snake”
Vijay Varma mentioned working closely with the costume designer of the series, to ensure that even in his costume, he exudes the mysterious energy surrounding his character Anand. The actor said, “The outfits were very meticulously designed. The costume designer, Smriti Chauhan, worked very closely with me, because I felt and wanted to base my character on a reptile-like energy. So all my shirts have a vertical pattern on front or back to create an illusion like a chameleon or a snake. This is one of the improvisations that I did with my character, apart from digging deeper into watching crime-thriller documentaries suggested by Reema to understand the psyche of Anand.”
Directed by Reema Kagti and Ruchika Oberoi, Dahaad is produced by Excel Media & Entertainment and Tiger Baby with Ritesh Sidhwani, Zoya Akhtar, Farhan Akhtar, and Reema Kagti as executive producers. The eight-episode series is all set to release on May 12, exclusively on Prime Video across 240 countries and territories.
