Not every actor is as lucky as actor Jason Tham, the Chinese born actor hit the jackpot with his film Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi directed by Mudassar Aziz. Jason has become a huge fan of his directorial tactics. Speaking on that he says,”Working with Mudassar sir has just opened my eyes wide for Indian cinema he is someone who has so much talent that anyone could only wish to be him.  He is a multi-talented person who is not only a director but also a writer, a lyricist, a dubbing artist, a rapper and even a cook. He’s an allrounder.” Jason also adds,”The first day when I met him he was very clear that I will play Chang even though I had no films in my kitty. That was a big gamble he was willing to take. My initial scenes in the film were with Sonakshi Sinha Jimmy Shergil and Piyush Mishra. I was a bit nervous. But with few workshops with him and it became a breeze for me to do those scenes.” In the film, there is a funny use of the word Makaju Jason shares the detail about it. “The origin of the word “Makaju ” happened when sir and I were sitting next to the monitor and I asked him a question that how I would address my goons when I am in an aggressive mode. He thought for a while and came up with this crazily insane smart idea of naming my assistant “Makaju” it was his spontaneity and crazy sense of humour that let to one of the biggest highlights of the film. He guided me in every step of the film. Since, writing is one of his forte he has the best luxury of changing or adding dialogues to the scene at any given point of time for the betterment of the film.” At the end, Jason adds,”Being a director and the captain of the ship he is not only famous for his work but is also immensely loved by the whole cast and crew for his personality. I feel that’s a great asset.” What is the best advice you have got from him? “I will always remember what he said, all perfect shots are made by imperfect takes.”
