Bollywood actor Vinay Pathak, known for his excellent comic timing, will be seen in Ananth Mahadevan directed biopic Gaur Hari Dastaan. This gifted actor has starred in various critically acclaimed films like Khosla Ka Ghosla, Bheja Fry and Johnny Gaddaar. He has also done major supporting roles in films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi.
This upcoming biopic is a dramatic tale of two generations locked in a see-saw battle. One generation is exhorting with values and other groping in the dark. This movie which is based on Odisha's freedom fighter Hari Gaur Das' memoirs revolves around a nation's present that has failed to justify its past. Therefore, the future is at stake. Gaur Hari Das had joined the movement to end British rule in India.
"I am playing Gaur Hari. It is a biopic. It is the story of a freedom fighter. It is a wonderful role and fantastically directed. I am looking forward to it," said Vinay known for his rib-tickling performances in "Khosla Ka Ghosla" and "Bheja Fry".
Gaur Hari Dastaan also stars Konkona Sen Sharma as the freedom fighter's wife. Ranvir Shorey and Tannishtha Chatterjee will also be seen in the period drama. Apart from that, Vinay will also be seen in revenge comedy Bajatey Raho, which has been directed by Shashant Shah and also stars Vishakha Singh, Tusshar Kapoor and Ranvir.
