    Sammir Dattani in a negative role

    For Sammir Dattani the journey from the candy-floss lover-boy in Ufff...Kya Jadoo Mohabbat Hai to the complex role of the government informer in Mukhbiir who changes his identity so many times that he no longer knows who he is, has been his words... "An interesting three-year learning experience."

    And now after Mani Shankar's Mukhbiir which releases in November, Sammir has landed himself another acutely challenging role in Vikram Bhatt's new film. Entitled Life Mein Kabhi Kabhi, Vikram's new film casts Sammir as an ambitious young politician who'd go to any lengths to get where he wants.

    Says Sammir, "I can't reveal much about the role. But it's a role with very definite shades of grey. What enthuses me is that so far I've always played noble guys who get involved in problematic situations. Life Mein Kabhi Kabhi is the first role where I'm required to be destructively ambitious. Like my roles in Mukbiir and Marathon, Vikram's film gives my character a great graph... from ruthlessly ambitious to final redemption."

    The film also stars Vikram Bhatt's old favourites Aftab Shivdasani and Dino Morea. Smiles Sammir, "I'm the only lead in the cast who's new to Vikram's unit. That's a special challenge. But Vikram is such a cool director. He knows exactly what he wants and how to get it out of me."

    The role also requires Sammir to have a relationship with an older woman. "And that's another challenge. Because I've never had a relationship with someone older. But Vikram is taking care of that," says Sammir.

    Adds Vikram, "It's a complex role. And when I chose Sammir I was sure that he had the right look. The talent came later. When he faced the camera he took me by surprise. Sammir is the character. He has stunning potential."
