The film's crew cut a cake to celebrate his birthday
TV hottie Barun Sobti celebrates his birthday today. On this occasion, he shared a snap of him as sports agent Ron Sen from 22 Yards. As we told you earlier, Barun will be seen in this sports based film being shot in Kolkata. He made his debut with Shernaz Treasurywala in Main Aur Mr Right but the film tanked in the theatres. People liked his performance though. The actor is known shooting for the film in Kolkata. It also has actress Panchi Bora who played a role in &TV’s Gangaa. She is a journo and his love interest.
The film focuses around Barun aka Ron’s life. He is a sports agent and his rise and fall is chronicled in the film. Mitali Ghosh who made a documentary on Sourav Ganguly is writing and directing the film. After tasting success, Ron gets embroiled in a scandal and has to resurrect his life. The actor worked hard to get the accent of a Bengali right in the film. He is a Punjabi from Delhi. Salim – Sulaiman is composing the music of the film. Barun has been away from films and TV for a long time and his fans are dying to see him.
This year fans were excited as he was supposed to be making a comeback with Satya Ki Kiran on ZEE TV. The finite series made by BBC Worldwide had him in the role of a cop with Shivani Tomar. It seems the channel shelved it as it did not fit into the idea of weekend programming. It might get revived on another channel though. He also did a film Tu Hai Mera Sunday that was screened in Cannes.
Making a transition from TV to films is not easy but Barun seems to be a patient man. It is a known fact that the actor can deliver the goods. He is also open to doing TV shows in this period. Stay tuned for more updates on Bollywood Life...
