Pawan Shankar's thrilled about his upcoming film Mr Bhatti on Chutti
Talented actor Pawan Shankar’s long delayed film Mr Bhatti on Chutti will finally see the light of the day. It will release on 18 May 2012. Talking about his character, Prem, an excited Pawan says, “I play an unemployed youngster who borrows money and goes to England and gets involved with a British girl. To find out what happens later, does he continue with the firang or find an Indian woman, you have to watch the film.”
Pawan really enjoyed working with lead actor Anupam Kher, who plays the role of detective who goes to England to solve a case. Since Bhatti (Anupam’s character name) is a bachelor, his character has his own set of frustrations.
“In a funny way we have tried to tell President Bush (he was the US President when the film was being made) that he does need to take care of the world, we will manage on our own, thank you very much.”
Pawan, who is currently a part of Kyaa Hua Tera Vaada on Sony Entertainment Television, says that “he finds both the mediums quite different.”
“In cinema you get a lot of time to work on your character and if you get a good director to get the good out of you, you can reach a different level altogether. In TV, on the other hand, you have to repeat the same emotions day after day. Having said that, I have been lucky to get very different kind of roles like Siddhant, Vicky Ki Taxi and now this simple man, Pradeep Singh in Kyaa Hua, who cheats on his wife as he comes under the sway of his college flame Anushka Sarkar (Mouli Ganguly).”
Pawan is quite happy to note that the rating of this Balaji Telefilms presentation is finally picking up (2.2 TVR).
“Ekta always knew that the push will come when the couple will separate. It is a matter of great pride for our show has registered a 0.5 TVR growth during the IPL when most shows have fallen.”
Furthermore, he does not seem to have a problem with the fact that the show is going on the movie Biwi No.1 track. “Even that David Dhawan project might have been copied from somewhere else,” he says.
Looking ahead in his show, he states, “Pradeep will finally realize that being with wife is the best option. During his twelve years of marriage, Mona (Mona Singh) had taken care of everything; he did not even need to make a cup of tea. ”
When asked to compare between Mona and Mouli, Pawan shares, “Please don’t ask me to compare. Having said that, Mona is a very talented actress and I am always on my toes trying to keep pace with her.”
