During a recent interaction with a leading daily, actor Aftab Shivdasani opened up about his upcoming Tamil film ‘Bhaskar Oru Rascal’ and said that he has been enjoying the shoot a lot. He went on to add, he has built a great rapport with co-star Arvind Swamy and stressed that the whole team is quite friendly.
“I have also been shooting with Arvind and Amala who have been warm. For me, it’s like working with foreign actors! We have mutual respect and admiration for each other’s work. I have known Arvind socially, so we get along really well. The rest of the team is also very welcoming,” he added.
Moreover, the 39-year-old star said that he agreed to do ‘Bhaskar Oru Rascal’ as he loves playing negative roles. According to him, they are more challenging than the regular ones.
“I have played the villain thrice in my career; in fact, my second movie Kasoor in 2001 had me in a negative role. I think it’s challenging and different for an actor to play a character with grey shades for a change,” said the actor.
Well, we hope that Aftab finds success with his maiden South film. All the best!
In case you did not know, ‘Bhaskar Oru Rascal’ is touted to be a comedy-drama and is being directed by Siddique. Interestingly, it is a remake of the popular Malayalam film ‘Bhaskar The Rascal’. The original version hit screens in 2015 and featured megastar Mammootty in the lead.
