After the overwhelming success of Prem Geet in 2015, actor Pradeep Khadka is quite busy working in its sequel, Prem Geet 2. We caught him in the middle of his training session to find out more about what he is up to:
You were training quite hard there. Was it for the movie?
Yes. Prem Geet 2 has a lot of action and dance sequences. So I have been practicing kick boxing and even dancing. It’s not easy as I thought it would be and I have been training rigorously for both.
How was your experience working with a new actress?
It was great fun. Compared to my first time, Aaslisha did a much better job. She is very confident and carries herself well in front of camera.
Prem Geet was a great success. Are you nervous about Prem Geet 2?
Quite frankly, I had no idea Prem Geet would do so well. I’m working very hard so that I don’t disappoint my fans. I’m grooming myself to improving my acting skills and make it more natural.
How it is different from its previous edition?
Story is totally different. Other than lead names ‘Prem’ and ‘Geet’ nothing is similar. We have shot in various foreign locations as well. So audience would have a lot to look forward to. That’s all I can say right now.
So would there be Prem Geet 3 as well? What is your next project?
(laughs) Well, I don’t know about Prem Geet 3 at the moment. I’m willing do movies with other production houses as well and explore my options. But the audience are very clever now, so I’m working extra hard and focusing on a single project in order to justify my character and meet their expectations.
Any role/genre you want to work in?
I want to work on a biopic of any legendary personality.
Any message to your fans?
I hope you continue to shower me with your love and support. I’m very positive you will love the movie. I have worked really hard on every aspect. But if I lack in some ways, I’m always welcomed to feedback.
