Jason Shah, who recently played the villainous Cartwright in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s debut streaming series Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar, opened up about the ‘stressful’ environment on set and said that he would’ve liked more time to prepare for the role, and more free-flowing communication between himself and his fellow collaborators on the show. In an interaction with the media, Jason said that he took it all on the chin, even though he was often the last actor to perform close-ups on a given day, and that assistants would frequently fail to communicate what was required of him. He said that he didn’t get the sufficient time to rehearse and he said that he isn’t satisfied with his performance.

 

Talking to the media, Jason said that he would work for three days, and then be off for weeks on end. This didn’t help his performance, I am not satisfied with my performance and the situation only worsened because of lack of clarity in vision. “I thought at first that (Cartwright) was a very straight-line kind of character, he’s coming in and whacking everyone, because that’s all that I’m reading. I didn’t read the entire screenplay, which, maybe if I’d got the chance to do that, I’d have seen Cartwright in a different light,” he said.

 

Jason should know that nothing could be done now, because now the show is out, however, these are merely excuses, many a times it happens that actors get their lines at the eleventh hour and it’s very rare to get the complete script well in advance.”

Now, Jason Shah should forget what he has done and he should take Heeramandi as an experience.
