Buzz in the town is that the actor/composer/singer is now also looking at demonstrating his action traits. He would be seen in this new avatar in John Mathew's A Love Ishhstory where he would be performing some dare devilry stunts. Even though he plays the character of a 'tapori' in this Bhushan Kumar production, a sequence in the film requires him to get into some hardcore stunts.
Confirms a source associated with the film, "Yes, Himesh bhai does play a 'tapori' in this film which is basically a musical comedy and a light hearted entertainer. Still, we decided to give the film a different angle by adding a few stunt sequences as well. Bhai is very enthused about the bike stunts that he is looking at performing on since in neither Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee nor Karzzzz did he get an opportunity to do something similar."
Rumour has it that these stunts would be choreographed by a team of action masters from Hong Kong. Is that true? "Yes, that is pretty much in the pipeline", adds the source, "These are the same people who have been doing stunts for Jackie Chan films."
In A Love Ishhstory, Himesh's character i.e. Sikander alias Sukku bhai is that of a stunt man. After shooting with Satish Kaushik in Karzzzz, what has been Himesh's experience while working with John Mathew?
"I have realized that comedy is indeed my forte", declares Himesh who has mainly played intense roles in both Aap Ka Surroor - The Moviee nor Karzzzz , "I am truly enjoying the experience of shooting and in the process have discovered that this is what I am best at."
"See, enacting intense characters is like playing on a home ground. I have done such roles for quite a few music videos of mine in the past and have been doing so in Karzzzz and Kajraare as well. However, I am warming up to comedy and actually enjoying the while experience", Himesh shares his new found love.
How about the stunts that he is performing for A Love Ishhstory? Isn't he a wee bit worried about his safety? "I guess there shouldn't be any problem at all since the team we are hiring for the film is quite professional and they would be having all the safety precautions in place. I am not thinking too much about that at the moment and just looking forward to this new experience", says Himesh.
A Love Ishhstory is a love story between a tapori and a super rich business woman (played by Niharika Singh). The current schedule of 25 days is going on in various parts of Mumbai.
