Firstpost spoke with the handsome hunk about his most difficult scene and how he was intimidated by Geoge Clooney. Here are excerpts from the interview
What were the reactions of your parents and family to the film?
They haven’t seen it. It’s on our TVs today. Today’s Indonesian Premier is today, so we are all very excited. We liked this group, Zoom, meeting with my friends when they saw the trailer. I said, “Look, this trailer is out!” It’s too much for me to see. We did a zoom meeting, just like we did with the trailer. It was actually recorded by me. The whole video was recorded by me. I will probably release it one day to see how people react. We were all just like that. I was like, “Oh my God, my face,” my this, and my that. Although we are very critical of our own faces when they appear in movies, we were all excited. It’s still hard to believe.
Information about the casting process
Yes, I was still photographing something at the time. It felt very new to me. It was completely new, and suddenly, my manager came up to me and said, “hey, there is an open casting.” I was amazed. I don’t know what it is. He sent me the link. The media link said that Julia Roberts and George Clooney were like making a film about Bali. I was shocked. Is this a movie? They’re open casting. They were looking for a Balinese man, and I said hello. Then, I made a self-tape and sent it to LA, London, or somewhere else. Then I had a zoom meeting. Then it was just a bunch of auditions. Then I got it. It was nerve-racking. It was nerve-racking. It was a link to an article on George Clooney and Julia Roberts filming in Bali.
Did you feel intimidated by Julia and George, living legends?
Since I was eight years old or nine years old, I have seen their films. My first encounter with George Clooney was in the Batman film. Then I saw Ocean’s Eleven and saw George Clooney and Julia together. I loved them both. It was an overwhelming feeling to be able to see these legendary actors and act with them. It was nerve-wracking. They are so friendly, so cool, and they make you feel welcome. They make you feel comfortable so that you can be confident that everything will go smoothly. They are so professional that you will feel like you can just as easily be with them.
The hardest scene in the movie
It was probably the market scene. It was the one that made me mad at George. That scene is my favorite. It was difficult to be. I don’t remember. I also felt very nervous. There was a lot going on. I knew the lines to the bone. Like I knew every line but didn’t know how I was going to attack him. George was directing me in a way that you might expect, George is also a director. That was it. My two seconds of glory. George Clooney was directing me. I thought, “Oh my God, he’s telling you how.” He said, “Look here, you can just chop me.” That will make for the most dynamic. Okay. That would be great. But I was so intimidated. I was like, “Yes, I’m just going to wait until he finishes it,” but he picked up the book quickly. I was like, “Oh yeah, I should do that.” That was quite intimidating for me. It was hard for me. I also waited patiently for the scene as that was the scene I auditioned for. That line was something I knew long before I needed it. Yes. You know, when you just keep repeating it over and over in your head, it’s like you’re asking yourself, “How does this go again?” You forget it. That was a very difficult one for me.
Most fond memories of the sets
We were clearly having fun because we hadn’t been out of our countries for a while. It was like we were locked downs for a year. We were finally free from our countries. We were having this moment of, “Oh my God, finally we’re going see some new people.” We were on this island for two months, and that was where we formed a strong bond with our crew. It was a lot of fun to just hang out on weekends and watch the parrots or kangaroos pass by. I thought it was just like a little kangaroo. It was all so memorable. Yes, we all needed that escape. It was unforgettable.
The film shows the beauty of forgetting about yourself and taking care of your loved ones. How would you describe a perfect marriage or institution of married life?
To have a solid foundation for marriage, there should be a lot of compromises. The ideal scenario is one where you have a partner in which everything happens at the right time and place. It’s a full-on compromise, with plenty of discussions to actually like manage 34 years of marriage. My parents are on their 35th anniversary of marriage. I watched it, and it seems like there is a lot of discussions. A perfect marriage is my ideal. However, I believe we can have a discussion about how things will turn out and also compromise on each other’s wants and needs. Your marriage could be maintained, I believe.
It seems like there will be lots of discussions in marriage. It’s going to be a lot of discussions, even though I’m not married.
