People have been saying positive things and it has been appreciated by literally everybody I know - friends, family, fans, everyone... Of course, there’s always room for improvement and I aim to take on bigger, better roles in life but it does feel nice. With the time I had in this role, and the scenes I portrayed, everyone seemed to love it. I’ve received personal feedback saying I was authentic and natural. There were some challenges along the way but I managed to overcome them. There was a scene where I was drunk and instead of acting drunk, I decided to actually drink for the scene! Before you start getting wild ideas, let me clarify that I made sure not to overdo it - just enough to get into the character. It worked out well and I maintained control throughout the scene. It was an enjoyable experience, and now I look forward to similar scenes in future projects because they’re fun to shoot, just like ‘Murder Mubarak’.”

Nikhil Khurana has been a part of some of the big projects in the recent times. Talking about being part of such big projects, he adds, “Last year was very good. I did ‘Murder Mubarak’, then I worked on ‘Pill’ for RSVP Films and ‘Sanaa’. All these projects were good and involved working with top-notch people in the industry. It was a learning experience. I feel like I belong here and I’m very happy to be part of this industry and collaborate with such talented individuals. It has definitely improved my skills because being on a film set, you quickly grasp what goes on behind the scenes. You have to absorb everything that’s happening around you. It was a great learning experience, and I never doubted my capabilities.”

Acting is such a rewarding journey; you learn so much and become a better actor with each experience. At the end of the day, it’s about patience, hard work, kindness, and happiness,” concludes Nikhil Khurana.
