How many of us recall the young and mute Shreyas Talpade from the film Iqbal? Post Iqbal he is on a high after signing up for Sangeeth Sivan's Apna Sapna Money Money and Kukunoor's next film Dor. After getting rave reviews for his performance in Iqbal we spoke to him about his upcoming film Dor and an interesting still from it.
In a complete make-over we see Shreyas in a Rajastani outfit selling chana. "I cannot reveal much about the character but it is very interesting. The chanawala is only a portion of my role", says the upcoming actor who did not divulge much but seemed excited about his new role.
From a mute guy from Andhra Pradesh in Iqbal to a street-smart looking Rajastani in Dor the transition seems completely opposite. "Playing the role in Dor was far more difficult than my role in Iqbal. Basically it has a lot of shades. Iqbal was physically more taxing but my role in Dor is more challenging. I help Gul Panag search for Ayesha Takia in Rajastan" The story begins when one man kills another in Saudi Arabia. The killer's wife Gul Panag is out to search for Ayesha Takia (the victim's wife) to get a pardon for her husband.
The Kukunoor-Talpade pairing gave us one thoughtful film and from the looks of it, Dor too promises to bring the distinct magic Kukunoor is always associated with.
