    Actor Jaideep Ahlawat opened up about the groundbreaking success of his web series, Paatal Lok. The actor, who is gearing up for the second season of the show, revealed that Bollywood biggies like Aamir Khan contacted him after watching the show and asked about his acting process. 

    In an interview with Humans of Bombay, Jaideep said, “When Paatal Lok came, everybody was locked in their houses due to Covid-19. We were scared. We definitely knew we had done a great job with Paatal Lok, but we didn’t know that after two days there would be bombardment. 48 hours after the release of Pataal Lok my phone started hanging. I cried every single day multiple times because of the phone calls and responses.”

    Jaideep said that he got a call from Manoj Bajpayee, “I think it was the second or third day after release and I got a call from Manoj Bajpayee. He spoke for about 30 to 35 minutes.”

    The Jaane Jaan actor said that after a week of release, he was on a video call with his actor friends when he suddenly got a notification which read, “Hi, this is Aamir Khan, please let me know whenever you are free, I will call.” 

    Jaideep said that he was initially sceptical about the message and told his wife about it, “Ye sahi nahi ho sakta (this can’t be true)” and thought it was a prank. However, he replied back and Aamir called him. He said, “When I heard his voice I was sure it was Aamir and he said ‘Can we talk on a video call?’” The actor said that they had a conversation for more than 30 minutes and Aamir asked him about his acting process and stuff. Impressed with Aamir’s trajectory in Hindi cinema, Jaideep was surprised that an actor of his stature was asking about his acting process. He wondered, “You are asking me about my process? You are the master of this, of preparing for a character, starting from the look of the character.” The actor added, “He was so genuine and sweet.”

    Jaideep Ahlawat will next be seen in Jaane Jaan, opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan and Vijay Varma. Helmed by Sujoy Ghosh, the film will release on Netflix on September 21.
