Nishant Dahiya: ‘My Military Upbringing Helped With my Character in Sultan of Delhi’ | Unique

Nishant Dahiya Opens up on Sultan of Delhi And His Military Background: Nishant Dahiya is happy for his magnum opus Sultan of Delhi co-directed by Milan Luthria and Suparn Verma. The duo has additionally co-written the script of the sequence streaming on Disney Plus Hotstar since October 13, 2023. The actor who has performed essential roles in films like Kedarnath, Raat Akeli Hai and Akelli lately opened up on enjoying the character of RP in Sultan of Delhi in an unique interplay with NewsLogic. he additionally spoke concerning the guide by Arnab Ray and the way his Military background assist him in imbibing the character within the Milan Luthria directorial.


When requested bout whether or not he took reference from Arnab Ray’s guide – Sultan of Delhi: Ascension, Nishant says, “I didn’t read the book because RP Singh’s character is not that much in it. RP’s character has been specially developed in the script of Sultan of Delhi. So, I did not had any reference from the novel on how to play RP. When Milan Sir explained his vision to me about the kind of world and characters he had imagined. From there I made a picture of how RP would be and the way he would probably walk and present himself in front of other people.” He additional added, “I also focused on the subtle nuances like how RP would eat, sit as he is used to imported cigarettes, lighters, perfumes and luxury cars. My character in Sultan of Delhi has been brought up in India till he was 16. After that he stayed in UK for higher education which has influenced his lifestyle. Despite spending 7-8 years abroad there is still a part of RP that is still Indian. His experiences as a kid and the changed man from UK, both have shaped his personality. So, it was important for me to balance and keep both these aspects together.”


On being quizzed about what function his military background performed whereas portraying RP Singh in Sultan of Delhi, Nishant states that, “My Army background definitely helped while playing RP because he is quite a refined guy in terms of how he behaves and talks. Obviously, he has his own short-temperedness where he gets really angry. But in terms of his general behaviour, he is very sophisticated, that’s where my army upbringing helped me. When I was 10 years old, I used to go to the officer’s mess with my father. There I was supposed to eat bread-omelette with a fork and a knife because my Dad used to tell me that’s how people do it.” He additionally says, “Even now if I am going to the market wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops and my father sees me he will say ‘Are you going like that, wear your shoes!’ That’s where RP comes in, because he is also someone who would never go out, until and unless he is dressed properly. For me as well after my Army upbringing and coming into this industry it took a long time to wear casual clothes as it was too weird. But that’s how I have been for 25 years of my life. So, playing RP took me back to my Army days because the way he conducts himself is like an Army Captain.”

Sultan of Delhi additionally stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Mouni Roy, Anupriya Goenka and Anjumm Ssharma in essential roles.
