‘Success and failures don’t affect casting decisions’
Mumbai, Sep 5 PTI : Sunny and Bobby Deol may not have had a blockbuster lately, but the director of their upcoming poster boy “Poster Boys” Shreyas Talpade says success and failures do not affect his casting decisions.
Sunny’s latest films, such as “Ghayal Returns” and “I Love New York”, have had no impact at the box office, while Bobby is away from the silver screen for quite some time now .
“I do not believe in the success and failure of the previous films. If I think the actor fits the character and I imagine him for the role, I know it will work.
“There are always ups and downs in the box office, so instead of focusing on this phase, I was focused on a good movie,” Shreyas told PTI.
“Poster Boys”, which sees Shreyas turning director, is the story of three men who find their face on a poster of vasectomy.
The film deals with a subject that is often considered a social taboo, but Shreyas says that Sunny and Bobby did not hesitate to resume the project.
“Both Sunny and Bobby were extremely pleased with the film, and there was no doubt or hesitation in their minds when they heard the subject, and they agreed to be part of it.”
The actor-director, 41, says he always had Deol brothers in his mind for the Hindi remake of “Poster Boyz”.
“I had someone like Sunny in my mind for the movie. We wanted to show a person who has the image of a macho man.
“Bobby’s character is cool in this movie and no one has seen him play such a role, I’ve known him for a long time and I know the character will be more appropriate for him, he worked hard for it,” adds -he.
The actor said shortly after the launch of the film “Poster Boyz” from Marathi, which he had produced, industry insiders suggested to remake the film in Hindi.
“The film Marathi was successful and people liked it.
It would have been stupid to change anything. Keeping only the image of Sunny and Bobby in mind, we have changed the characters a bit, but otherwise the knot of story and script are the same, “he said.
The movie should be released this Friday.
