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.
