Aftab Shivdasani plays the lead in Vikram Bhatt's romantic thriller Red, which is slated to release on March 2 this year. But few are aware that the striking actor, all of six feet, has also made a special appearance in Ram Gopal Varma's Nishabd.
Aftab confirmed, "I have not done any films with Amitabh Bachchan, but I've done a guest appearance in Nishabd." Although his exact role in Nishabd is not yet known, it is confirmed that he will be seen in the film. Nishabd is a film about strange love between an 18-year old girl and a 60-year old man, played by debutante Jiah Khan and superstar Amitabh Bachchan respectively. On being asked if he was doing any other films with RGV, he said, "No, I am not doing any other films with him as of now".
Interestingly while Aftab has not shared screen space with Amitabh Bachchan so far, not many know that Aftab played Amitabh Bachchan in two films. Yes, and that as a child actor when he played a young Amitabh in Shahenshah (1988) and Insaniyat (1994).
Aftab has a lot on his plate this year. Besides his role in Red, he will also be starring in a negative role in Speed, which will release in July this year. He is also doing a film with the cheery Ayesha Takia called De Taali, which according to him is "an out an out romantic comedy".
