Vivaan said that trying to play a ragpicker was a fascinating process for him. He said that we have all seen barrow pullers on the road in our daily life but to replicate the nuances, body language and cadences of a ragman required some focussed in-depth study and minute observation. The way they pull the cart or the call that they shout across the streets to sell their wares. All these things are very specific and needed to be replicated authentically he said. Naseeruddin Shah’s son Vivaan has acted in films like Saat Khoon Maaf and Happy New Year.
