Sunny Kaushal who was last seen in Akshay Kumar‘s Gold playing a Punjabi hockey player, is currently shooting in Allahabad.

He’s been there for a while for his upcoming film Hurdang opposite Nushrat Bharucha and Vijay Varma. Determined to perfect his role, Sunny left a couple of days earlier to explore Allahabad as he plays a boy who hails from the city.

 According to a source:

“Sunny left a few days earlier than the shoot began, and went for the recce with the director to know the city as he plays a boy, Daddu Thakur from Allahabad. He also paid a visit to Allahabad University to get to know the students and their language. Sunny also interacted with the locals there and mingled with them at a local stall.”

Sharing his experience Sunny says:

“Going earlier, before the shoot started, definitely helped me a lot I just want. I just wanted to take in the place and observe people and the way they interact in social gatherings, the food they eat, the opinions that form their mindset. All of this forms an integral part of who Daddu Thakur is. Allahabad is a culturally dense place. People here are warm and brash at the same time. They possess an amazing sense of humour which is so sarcastic. It just makes the conversation fun and they don’t shy away from expressing themselves.”

The actor will be next seen in RSVP’s Bhangra Paa Le and soon begin shooting for Dinesh Vijan’s directorial, Shiddat.
