The Shaitan actor is gung ho about working in the Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer, Ram Leela. And no, it is not the role everyone thinks it is!
Thanks to his unusual choice of roles, actor Gulshan Devaiah has earned himself the moniker of ‘Bad Boy of Bollywood’. His performances in Shaitan, That Girl In Yellow Boots and more recently Hate Story have been appreciated. And now he has bagged a role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ranveer Singh-Deepika Padukone starrer, Ram Leela. Gulshan is reportedly playing a negative role in the film. But he himself has a different story to tell.
Though excited about doing a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, Gulshan seems rather irked by the rumours about him playing a baddie in Ram Leela. He explains, “Though I can’t say much about my role in Ram Leela at this moment, it is not a negative role, as reported in the papers. Everyone has grey shades, be it the hero or heroine. It is an important part and the role just fell into my lap. I didn’t have to audition for it. I used to think that some day I will work with Mr Bhansali, but I didn’t know my dream would come true! I have started shooting for the film and it feels great to be working with the biggest director of India.”
While we like this gung-ho attitude, we are still curious. Sure, he is not the bad guy and no one is all white or all black, but what will an actor of Gulshan’s calibre do in a film that has commercial hot-shots Ranveer and Deepika in it? We wonder….
