‘I’m ex­cited to star with Manoj Ba­j­payee’

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Gul­shan De­va­iah is happy with the good re­sponse to his lat­est film, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, at in­ter­na­tional film fes­ti­vals. Al­though the film is yet to re­lease in In­dia, Gul­shan has al­ready picked his next project in which he will share screen space with ac­tor Manoj Ba­j­payee for the first time.

Both ac­tors will be seen to­gether in the film ti­tled Hin­ter­land, ex­pected to go on the floors next year.

Ex­cited to be team­ing up with the se­nior ac­tor, Gul­shan says he ad­mires the way Manoj lends au­then­tic­ity to any char­ac­ter he plays.

“When I heard the script (of Hin­ter­land), I found it re­ally in­ter­est­ing and chal­leng­ing at the same time. It’s go­ing to be an ex­cit­ing jour­ney shoot­ing for the same. I play the brother to Manoj’s char­ac­ter in the film. He is a phe­nom­e­nal ac­tor and has been a big in­spi­ra­tion for me,” says Gul­shan.

The ac­tor es­pe­cially re­mem­bers watch­ing Satya (1998) and Manoj’s per­for­mance as Bhiku Mha­tre gave him hope.

“I started to be­lieve I too can suc­ceed as a pro­fes­sional ac­tor. I’m re­ally glad and ex­cited to have the op­por­tu­nity of work­ing with him. He is one of the most im­por­tant ac­tors of the last 25 years, a pi­o­neer, a le­gend,” adds Gul­shan.

I have watched Manoj’s work and re­ally ad­mire him for the au­then­tic­ity he lends to ev­ery char­ac­ter. He is a phe­nom­e­nal ac­tor. GUL­SHAN DE­VA­IAH
