Vishal Dadlani of Vishal-Shekhar fame has composed music for big
names in Bollywood like Salaam Namaste and Dus. And
now, he will be seen making a cameo in a Farah Khan's directorial
venture Om Shanti Om.
Vishal is the vocalist of one of Mumbai's hottest rock bands
called Pentagram. He was also a VJ at Channel V for a brief period
of time. The uber cool composer was doing the music of Om Shanti
Om, when Farah walked up to him and offered him a part in her
film. Says Vishal,"I was just working on the music for Farah's film
Om Shanti Om. She came up to me and asked me to do this
small part. I got into it because I happened to be available." And
so, Vishal did the part in the same clothes that he was wearing at
the time! He obviously had no time to change into anything else.
Did he do any sort of preparations for the part? "I am not an
actor", quips Vishal, "So I was not at all ready for it. It was
hardly a role; my part was only for 30 seconds."
Om Shanti Om stars Farah's good friend Shah Rukh Khan and debutante Deepika Padukone in the
lead. The film is slated for a late 2007 release.
Incidentally, his composer partner Shekhar Ravjiani had played a
walkon part in the film Home Delivery.
