One thing that young actor Yuvaraj, who makes his debut with the upcoming Asthitva, realized is that there's more to acting than emoting in front of the camera. In fact, the software professional-turned-actor was put through quite the wringer by director Nuthan Umesh. "I have been used to a certain lifestyle; I would drive around town in fancy cars, eat out at luxury hotels, party and hang out with friends often, etc. But when I signed up for Asthitva, Umesh sir insisted that I get a feel of my character, by living like him for a while, so that I could get my body language and other mannerisms right. I was asked to travel only by public transport, especially BMTC buses, wear inexpensive and rather old clothes, and frequent eateries that are popular with the common man. I did this for about two months, and the experience helped me as a person, and as an actor," says Yuvaraj.
