Actor Vikash Bhai, Limbo (2020)

Actor Vikash Bhai: ‘I auditioned 7 times for Limbo (2020)! It was a part that I simply HAD to play…’

Actor Vikash Bhai is persistent. When he knows what he wants, he’s willing to do what it takes. Bhai tells our presenter how he auditioned 7 times for the role of Farhad, one of the main characters in Ben Sharrock’s BAFTA-nominated comedy-drama Limbo (2020). The films centres on four asylum seekers who are staying on a remote island in Scotland, taking cultural awareness classes, whilst waiting for their refugee claims to be processed.

Our interview with Vikash Bhai is available on all major podcast platforms including Spotify and Apple Podcasts from 12th May 2021!
