Saturday, August 04, 2007 One of the most stylish hunks in Bollywood seems to be stuck with an ill-mannered secretary. Currently busy shooting for One Two Three, model-turned-actor Upen Patel seems to have shifted from thrillers to comedy these days. The actor is also supposed to do a film with Govinda.
We called him up to find out whether his failed thriller formula was the reason behind the change and about his experience of working with ace actors Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty in One Two Three. But Upen's secretary wasn't so keen about the idea. He sounded almost like a fishmonger when he asked why we had called and then slammed down the phone saying "Upen abhi busy hai". Well, busy the struggling actor might be, but we are sure the same message could be conveyed in a dignified tone.
All we can suggest, Upen is to either change his secretary or take all his calls himself, for his goodwill's sake. If nothing changes, sure enough his career might grind to a halt before taking off.
