Y.A.R.O Ka Tashan brings in a fresh twist in the plot.
After a successful completion of more than 100 episodes, Y.A.R.O Ka Tashan, which is one of Sony Sab’s most popular science fiction shows is witnessing a divergent shift when Yaaro the humanoid transforms himself into a superhero called ‘Yo Man’.
Here are some excerpts from the interview with Anirudh Dave who plays the role of Yo Man’.
Tell us about your new look as ‘Yo Man’ the superhero
When you shoot for a particular character, it is vital that all the aspects including your makeup, attire and the whole look are apt for the character. I love the new look of Yaro which is ‘Yo Man’. Personally, I love water and adventure sports and for this role, my attire is very similar to the gear you generally wear for these sports, hence I am very comfortable shooting in it. Additionally, the body suit has an armor-like metal knee guards and puffed up shoulders, which is a great motivating factor for me. It makes me feel like I am the real superhero.
What has been your experience working with a veteran actor like Shoma Anand who plays the Dadi’s role in the serial?
Can’t express the level of comfort she brings to the set when she’s shooting! She has been a part of this industry for nearly 40 years! And since I can remember, I have seen her in multiple films and television serials. It’s an honor to work with her. She is so senior in the industry, however, her demeanor is still so down to earth and humble. She is frank, never made me feel uncomfortable with the age difference. She is very approachable and we discuss many things just like friends! She also shares a lot of her past experiences with me, how it was like working 40 years back and her experiences working with some legendary actors of the time.
Who would you consider as your favorite superhero?
To be honest, I don’t have any favorite superhero as such, but I believe that there is a superhero in every person. I strongly feel that whoever takes an effort to better the society, constantly paying attention to their surroundings and reacting when necessary to bring about a positive change in society is equivalent to a superhero.
If you could have one superpower in real life, what would it be?
I really would like some kind of power that could allow me to predict what bad things are going to happen in the future. So that I can change the present accordingly and avoid the problem altogether.
How will you use your super power to do good to the society?
I will use it to better society, help the needy by foreseeing their problems. Control any mishaps or accidents if I see any. Maybe reduce the suicide rates, just anything to not allow anything bad to take place.
