Sumeet Vyas is soon going to be featured in the show The Verdict – State Vs Nanavati and he will be playing the character of Ram Jethmalani. He recently talked about his role as a leading daily. The show is based on the 1959 Nanavati case. Other than Sumeet Vyas, Angad Bedi will be seen playing the character of the barrister Karl Khandalavala in this web series.
Sumeet has gone through many look tests for the role and said, "Since it's a period show, we avoided making the actors look caricaturish. We used a few photos of Ram Jethmalani to draw inspiration for the costumes."
Since Sumeet has never met Ram Jethmalani personally he had to take help from the material present online. He said, "He was in his 40s when he was fighting this case. There are no videos of him from the time. So, we decided to interpret the man rather than imitate him. I noticed how he looks now and tried to analyze how he would have been decades ago."
"For the actor, the complexities of each character was an interesting aspect to analyze. You can't have an opinion of Jethmalani that is wholly complete. You can't term him unfair, or even entirely fair either. So, it's fascinating to play that" he added.
It has been six decades since the trial took place but the case still grabs a lot of attention. This web-series will be a 10 episode courtroom drama and it will be based on the public records, interviews and newspaper articles.
