The 63-year-old actor, who is making all the headlines these days for his recent guise as the former prime minister, took to his Instagram page to share a video of the Broughton Hall Estate.
“Schedule wrap for #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister. This place played a very important role for me to focus and internalise.:) #SwitchOnTheSound #LifeOfAnActor #Concentration #Preparation #Calmness #NextScheduleInIndia,” he wrote.
n the clip, the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star said, “It was amazing to be at this place, Broughton Hall Estate, for so many days, shooting for ‘The Accidental Prime Minister.’ It is such a beautiful calming place.” And I must say that this really helped me concentrate and focus on one of the most difficult roles that I have done, in terms of physicality and making it internal because performance wise, Dr Manmohan Singh is very visible, known, today’s persona and the world knows him on TV from various sources of information. And I will miss this place. And it’s beautiful. It’s beautiful,” he further said, before concluding with “Jai ho.”
