Vinay Pathak will surprise everyone: Anant Mahadevan

Saturday, July 18, 2015

New Delhi: He is known for his comedy roles in films like “Bheja Fry” and “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi”, but filmmaker Anant Mahadevan says actor Vinay Pathak will enthral the audience with his serious role in their upcoming film “Gour Hari Dastaan: The Freedom File”.

The 47-year-old “Khosla Ka Ghosla” actor plays a freedom fighter, who fights for his own identity in the drama movie.

“When you do a biopic, obvious names crop up in your head. I needed a vulnerability, tolerance and temperament in the role of a man who can bend but has the mental ability to carry on with his fight for 30 years. Vinay did absolute justice to it,” Mahadevan said.

Pathak is receiving rave reviews for his performance at various film festivals and Mahadevan feels the actor will break the stereotype and surprise everyone with the movie.

“He was always there on my mind for the role. With this performance he will break all the perception and stereotypes. It is sad, an actor of his caliber is often slotted as a comedian. He is capable of doing more and the film will prove that. He will surprise everyone.”

Also starring Konkona Sen Sharma and husband Ranvir Shorey, “Gour Hari Dastaan: The Freedom File” follows the real-life struggle of freedom fighter Gour Hari Das, who fought with the government for 32 years for his own identity after his son was unable to secure college admission for lack of a Freedom Fighter’s Certificate.

It releases on August 14. Mahadevan said the film is “everything from a biopic to a political statement” and he thinks this is the right time for its release.
