What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear of the Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade? Housefull 2? Golmaal 3? Om Shanti Om? We usually associate the actor with light hearted comedy movies, don't we?
This time around, to change the mindset of the people and challenge his versatility, Shreyas has taken up a lead role in a psychological thriller, to be directed by Mukesh Jadhav, his mentor. The shoot has already begun in Manali in a very spooky looking bungalow, which satisfies the theme of the movie.
The shoot will be in progress for over a month followed by a later part, in Mumbai. Talpade plays the role of a brother, who stays away from the mess of his family, but an email from his brother turns his life upside down.
Besides being a Marathi movie producer, he has played lead roles in critically acclaimed movies such as Dor and Iqbal. Shreyas says, "it's a paradigm shift for me as I have generally done more comic roles".
