Angad excited to work with Salman
Angad Bedi, who will share screen space with Salman Khan, says that the film Pink has been a turning point in his career
After the success of filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s Pink (2016), actor
Angad Bedi (above left) has finally bagged his dream role in a film starring actor
Salman Khan (above right). The film is being directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, and also stars Katrina Kaif. Excited about the project, Angad says, “It feels great to work in a film being made by the first family of cinema. Yash [Chopra] Ji had once told me that your time will come and you will be in a film under our banner on your own merit. I will never forget his words.”
Angad got noticed for his performance in Pink, which paved the way for this big opportunity. Asked if he had to wait for long to get a commercial film, Angad replies, “As they say, ‘der aaye par durust aaye’. Pink has been that film, which made the industry notice me. A film with Mr Bachchan and Shoojit [Sircar] da at the helm has been my turning point. Ali [Abbas Zafar] saw Pink and considered me for his film.” Angad agrees that working with bigwigs such as Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan expands the scope for an actor, and adds, “I have worked in Mr Bachchan’s market and now it’s Salman Bhai’s. His mass audience will get to see me. It’s huge! I haven’t had the opportunity to interact with Katrina but her body of work is tremendous and she has done the biggest films.”
He says that the film is going to be his ultimate big break in Bollywood, and he will get noticed even more, and one day he would have a market of his own.
