      "From losing hair to a total bald pate was tricky to shoot. So we shot the sparse hair makeover first, before I took the plunge into a bald one. It was a tough decision but then so was the film. A rare opportunity," Vinay said to IANS.

      To do full justice to his role, Vinay also shed some kilos to get himself into physique parallel to Gour Hari Das character as well.

      "I moved my mind, body and soul closer to his being. The important thing was not to do an impersonation but interpret Das correctly as Vinay Pathak the actor. So from his all-white fashion statement to his tolerant yet witty demeanour, I studied the man carefully."

      Anant Mahadevan's Gour Hari Dastaan- The Freedom File was also screened at the Cannes International Film Festival and Beijing International Film Festival.

      "To recreate a living personality that too, a real life unsung hero like Das, had to be carefully executed. But the reward was the overwhelming response from festival screenings all over the world." he further added.

      Slated to release on August 14, the film also stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Ranvir Shorey, Saurabh Shukla among others.
