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.
