As the title suggests itself, Extraction is a kidnap drama. Hemsworth plays the character of a mercenary, Rake, who is hired to rescue the son of a business tycoon. Priyanshu Painyuli also plays a meaty role in the movie and to get into the skin of his character, he transformed himself completely.

Talking about his part, Painyuli says, “It is a very interesting story. I am playing a very special role, in a surprise package. I am eagerly waiting to see myself. I haven’t done anything like this before. I can’t wait for people to watch this film. It is an experience I will always cherish. My biggest takeaway from this was the discipline of it. Everyone was so well-prepped and so thorough with their scenes. The research is so well-rounded that there is zero scope for errors when the actor is in front of the camera. Everything is already on the storyboard, discussed and vetted, before the scene. I have been able to inculcate a more methodical approach to work.”

The actor goes on to add that it was a delightful experience to work with someone like Chris Hemsworth. “When you work with someone like him, you realise the value of being grounded. He is warm and kind as a colleague. He had this incredible zest to learn more and do better and the fact that the team made me so comfortable that I wanted to give my best,” he concludes.
