Actor, musician Meiyang Chang has made his name in the digital format for several years and it looks like he’s consolidating on his form with several opportunities now. Bombers being his latest web series, he had played a chef cum aspirant footballer. While he’s a bankable actor any given day, it was football that made his job tough during the shoot of Bombers.
“It’s a stressful, demanding game and it was quite challenging to stay true to the nature of a real-life football player. I didn’t even know the technique of the game and even to kick the ball properly. You can’t use raw force, for the ball goes somewhere else and you hurt yourself,” he said in an interview to a news portal.
The series renewed his interest in the game and it was tough being a newbie among several co-stars who were football enthusiasts, Chang had said. “Abhilash Kumar and Mridul Das were of great help during the little time I had. Given my fascination for anything Bong, shooting at Chandan Nagar with all its colonial past and the community’s love for football was quite a special feeling,” he added.
