Young and talented Rajat Bharmecha, who rose to fame with movie Udaan, is currently ruling the web space. After Girl In The City, Rajat will be seen in MX Player’s Hey Prabhu. It is a story about a millennial getting to terms with his professional and personal life.
Rajat plays Tarun Prabhu, a millennial who doesn’t seem to know the harsher realities of life. The influencer gets a job in a magazine that’s prestigious enough to be termed as a ‘place for veterans’ and highbrow enough to have a name that’s only seen in a bakery. How Tarun handles all this is what forms the rest of the series.
Talking about his role, Rajat Barmecha says, “Tarun is the anti-thesis of the quintessential Sharma ji ka ladka. On the work front, he excels with the understanding of social media and delivers above expectation but on the personal front, he doesn’t seem able to deal with the mess his life is in. He is a millennial who has issues that many may deem unnecessary but are very real to him. I hope the audiences enjoy the series as much as we enjoyed making it.”
He further adds about the show and shares, “The USP of this show is the writing as it is very real and natural. We also had a great bunch of team on the set. Hence, overall it is a fun show. A lot of people will relate to the show. I had an amazing bond with the director of my show Shashank Ghosh, who also directed Veere Di Wedding.”
When we ask does he feel competition around with so many digital platforms, he avers, “There are numerous platforms but there is no one like MX Player. This platform has strong database and I feel they are one of the biggest platforms now. I don’t think they have any competition.”
On an end note, he requested audience to watch the series and support the team!
Way to go boy!
