Dino Morea to fea­ture in a Malay­alam film

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Ac­tor Dino Morea (right), who is ven­tur­ing into the Malay­alam film in­dus­try with a cameo in film­maker Be­joy Nam­biar’s next, says he isn’t mak­ing a per­ma­nent switch. “I’m not switch­ing from Bol­ly­wood to the Malay­alam film in­dus­try. As an ac­tor, I will work — whether it is in a Malay­alam, Tel­ugu or any film,” said Dino.

He has al­ready started shoot­ing for the movie, and says he is not even fac­ing any lan­guage bar­rier. “I grew in Ban­ga­lore, so I used to speak a lot of Tamil. But I haven’t spo­ken it in a long time. I will take some time to get some of the words in Tamil,” he added.

In the film, he plays an army of­fi­cer. Talk­ing about it, Dino said: “It’s pretty sim­ple to play the role of an army of­fi­cer. He is like a Gen­eral who talks to his sub­or­di­nates about life, im­part­ing ad­vice on re­la­tion­ships. The story is quite thrilling and fun.”

Hav­ing started out as a model, Dino fea­tured in some short films and TV shows be­fore he landed a key role in Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi... (1999). There­after, he was seen in movies such as Raaz (2002), Rakht (2004), Ak­sar (2006), Acid Fac­tory (2009)and Pyaar Im­pos­si­ble (2010).

Dino ex­plored the pro­duc­tion side of films with Jism 2 (2012), and also fea­tured as a con­tes­tant in a stunt-based real­ity show in 2010.

Apart from films, Dino has fo­cussed his en­er­gies on pro­mot­ing fit­ness through open gyms on the streets of Mum­bai. A free-for-all ser­vice, the fit­ness sta­tions were launched in 2014.

“I am a fit­ness en­thu­si­ast since child­hood,” said Dino, adding: “I have played a lot of sports to re­main healthy and fit. Un­for­tu­nately, in Mum­bai, there are not many fa­cil­i­ties for peo­ple to use. So, I came up with the idea to open my fit­ness sta­tions, which are eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to peo­ple.”
