Mumbai, March 4 : Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s popular character Captain Jack Sparrow will be given a ‘desi’ twist in an Indian TV show.
Actor Ashish Sharma will soon be seen dressed up as Sparrow from “Pirates of the Caribbean” series in Anirudh Pathak’s show “Prithvi Vallabh”. His character will be called Dharti Dhakel Singh.
As per the storyline, Sindhuraj orders that Mrinal be abducted but she will be rescued by a masked man named Dharti Dhakel Singh, which will be his disguised look.
“I think Johnny Depp is one of the most recognised actors of world cinema. His performance as Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates…’ series is commendable,” Ashish said in a statement.
“The makers have given my look a Jack Sparrow feel. It is not just about the look, I have even worked very hard on the body language to pull off Dharti’s look. I completely Indianised and made it ‘desi’ with rural accent and body language,” he added.
The experience was “full of fun” for Ashish.
