Bejoy Nambiar’s upcoming film ‘Shaitan’, which is being touted as glimpse into the dark side of the life of Mumbai youngsters, doesn’t intend to have shock value to grab attention, says actor Gulshan Devaiya.
“I don’t think we have done anything, which would have a shock value. It was scripted and it was in a flow. If it turns out something is shocking, then its ok but it’s not done intentionally to shock people or to grab attention,” Gulshan told IANS in an interview.
Produced by filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, ‘Shaitan’ traces the life of five youngsters from Mumbai’s urban scape and how in covering up an accident, these intelligent, good looking and hip youngsters dig out a flip side to their character.
“I don’t think it’s intended to show Mumbai in a different perspective, but it wanted to show how young people who live a very fast paced life in the city. It’s also shows how young people are adapting themselves with the new Mumbai,” adds Gulshan, who plays the role of KC in the movie.
“I was instinctively drawn towards KC because I thought it would be a nice role, I would enjoy playing him,” said Gulshan.
The actor was enticed to do play KC because it’s a very edgy role but he personally doesn’t identify with the character at all.
“I am not like KC at all. I don’t like too many people around, going to nightclubs, all this loud music, I don’t do drugs, I don’t even smoke though I occasionally enjoy my drinks. I didn’t find the role difficult I found it interesting. I wanted to do it,” he said.
