Jamai Raja fame Ravi Dubey steps in as lead in an engaging con thriller Matsya Kaand which is set to air on MX Player on the 18th of November, 2021.
“My favourite role so far, is Matsya,” he confesses his love for acting as we ask him what he is more – a TV actor, an anchor or a performer.
What Matsya is all about
We ask him why he chose a character so different from all his on-screen performances and he talks about how Matsya is not really different from the person that he is.
“We are not very different. I feel most aligned with Matsya. He is not a violent guy. He does his cons with brains and wit and relationships than brawn and muscle and violence and aggression. I feel I’m in complete resonance with Matsya.”
Ravi Dubey’s reaction on netizens calling Matsya Kaand “Sasta Money Heist”
There are a lot of conversations happening on the internet which happen to directly compare Matsya Kaand to Money Heist basis the trailer which speaks of a professor and a team and how they perform acts of cons with clear wit and elan much like in Money Heist.
While Ravi agrees that Mastya Kaand is also a con thriller like Money Heist, he denies any similarity between Matsya Kaand and Money Heist. He says in fact they’re very different and that Matsya Kaand has a very 90’s quintessential vibe.
Matsya on being a spend-thrift in real life
Ravi humbly admits by raising his hand that he is the spend-thrift in real life and Sargun is the one who saves up. He adds that while he got the understanding of brands from Sargun, it is now hard for him to go back.
