Why did Gulshan Devaiah refuse Bobby Jasoos?

The talented actor was praised by one and all for his villainous avatar in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram-Leela. Then why did he refuse a meaty role in the Vidya Balan starrer?

Gulshan Devaiah who was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela has decided against a plum role in the Vidya Balan starrer Bobby Jasoos.Since making his debut in Shaitan, Gulshan has always been seen essaying characters that have shades of grey, and hence he decided to respectfully decline Bobby Jasoos .

Talking about the reason behind his decision Gulshan said, “Dia narrated the script, dwelling into my proposed onscreen character in-depth but after giving it a long hard thought somehow I thought I would be repeating myself. I wanted to do something very new from what I have been doing so I voiced my point-of-view to both Dia and Sahil, who were very patient and understanding. It’s a great project and I wish them my very best”.

The actor recently hosted the closing ceremony of IFFI in Goa and has a great 2014 with four films in his bag, one of which is Pooja Bhatt’s Cabret, where he essays the role of the male lead.
