Now before you frown and make opinions, here’s the catch! Actor Annu Kapoor is acting in Director Shoojit Sircar’s next movie VICKY DONOR. In the movie he plays the role of a happy-go-lucky bachelor from Delhi, Dr Chaddha. Has the cloud cleared now? Vicky is under constant consultancy of Dr Chaddha who advices him to donate what he is reluctant of. “A 52 years young bachelor, Dr Chaddha is a very interesting character, a complete Dilliwala and a character that I haven’t played before for sure who is very particular about his things,” shares Annu Kapoor.
After 7 KHOON MAAF, where he has played the role of Inspector Keemat Lal, Kapoor will now be seen playing the role of a doctor who has a clinic in Dariyaganj, Delhi. The turf and language of Delhi is not new to Kapoor. Being the National School of Drama alumnus, Kapoor is quite at ease playing the role of a Dilliwala. “I was in Delhi in the mid-70s studying at NSD. It was a different time all together. For one, there were no flyovers and now when I see Delhi, it has changed quite a bit and for better I see. After more than 3 decades it feels good being in Delhi again when we are shooting with the whole cast and crew of VICKY DONOR here,” he says.
About being a part of a movie with Shoojit Sircar and the script of the movie, Kapoor feels, “Shoojit is a filmmaker with a vision. And that’s what we need for Indian cinema today. As far as the script of this movie is concerned, I think Indian audience is ready for a movie like this. It is the right time and I am sure when the audiences see this movie, they will enjoy it completely,” he says. Film is being shot in Delhi at present.
