"There's something about Sunil's personality. It exudes dependability and strength. And yet, he can also look ruthless if he wants. I want him to play Vidya Balan's husband in Rahgeer," says Rituparno Ghosh, about Sunil Shetty.
Ritu has met Sunil, and in principle, the actor has agreed. "I need to hear the script now," says Sunil, shooting around the clock and looking into the production of his new Priyadarshan comedy, Bhaagam-Bhaag, which his company, Popkorn Entertainment, is co-producing.
"But yes, I'd love to be part of Rituparno's film," says the actor. "He's the kind of director who would take me beyond where I am today. I need to look beyond what I've done so far.
That's why, after my current set of films – Subhash Ghai's Apna Sapna Money Money, Dharmesh Darshan's Aap Ki Khatir, J P Dutta's Umrao Jaan and Mani Shankar's Mukhbir – I need to take a break to recharge my batteries. Rituparno's film could be a step in my reinvention as an actor."
Won't act, produce
Shetty says happy to step back and let Govinda and Akshay Kumar take centrestrage in Bhaagam-Bhaag. "Though my director, Priyadarshan, was very keen that I do the film, I'm very clear I won't act in films that I produce.
Bhaagam-Bhaag is actually for Chi-Chi (Govinda). When he told me to do something about his career, I had to act immediately. Bhaagam-Bhaag will show the Akshay-Govinda jodi in a really entertaining light."
He's just returned from England after working with one of his favourite directors.
"Dharmesh Darshan gave me one of my career's best roles in Dhadkan," says Sunil. "I can't claim to have an equally rewarding space in his new film Aap Ki Khatir. But yes, I'm one of the five protagonists. It's a very emotional love story with lovely visuals and music."
