Groom-ed Vyas to hit big screen

Mail Today - - SPOTLIGHT -

AU­DI­ENCES will see ac­tor Sumeet Vyas twice on the big screen in a mat­ter of two weeks. On May 18, he stars in his friend and film­maker Akarsh Khu­rana’s di­rec­to­rial de­but High Jack. Then on June 1 he is the good guy who looks for­ward to mar­riage with his re­luc­tant girl­friend (Ka­reena Kapoor Khan) in Veere Di Wed­ding(VDW).

Both may be come­dies but they couldn’t be dif­fer­ent.

The for­mer is an in­de­pen­dent film in which Vyas, best known for The Vi­ral Fever’s pop­u­lar web se­ries Per­ma­nent Room­mates and Tripling.

With VDW Vyas had no idea what he was au­di­tion­ing for.. Once se­lected he dis­cov­ered that he was sign­ing his big­gest com­mer­cial project to-date. It helped that Shashanka Ghosh was di­rect­ing the film. “It re­ally drew me in be­cause I have been a huge fan of his work”, said Vyas men­tion­ing Waisa Bhi Hota Hai Part 2. But the ac­tor who wowed in Rakhee San­daliya’s un­der­rated mar­i­tal drama Rib­bon (2017) isn’t rid­ing all his hope on VDW.

“It is def­i­nitely a very im­por­tant project done on a big scale by some cred­i­ble peo­ple and I have a de­cent part in it and I am glad I am part of it, but beyond that I don’t want to say this is go­ing to change my life,” said Vyas.

Though he is happy with how it has turned out. “I dubbed re­cently for the film so I got an idea of how much of my work is left,” he added. “Most of it was there which sur­prised me and it proved that they are putting the story above ev­ery­thing else,” said Vyas.

VDW is Vyas’s big­gest com­mer­cial project yet.
