It's interesting to play double role: Gulshan Grover

Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Gulshan Grover, who has been part of more than 350 films so far in his career, will be seen in a double for the first time in "Baat Bann Gayi". The actor is excited about the project and says "it's intersting to play such roles".

"Baat Bann Gayi" is co-produced by Sayed Asif Jah and Megha Agarwal and is directed by Shuja Ali.

"After over 350 films, I am very excited that Asif Jha and Shuja Ali saw my potential to essay double role in 'Baat Bann Gayi'," the actor said in a statement.

Gulshan portrays the role two diametrically different characters - the studious Professor Lakshmi Niwas and a pansy choreographer Debu Daruwala - in the film that will release Oct 11.

"It was very interesting because when you normally play a double role, one is a good guy and the other is bad. Here, Prof Lakshmi Niwas is a very nice man, and Debu is nicer, and has an artistic way of life, a different kind of happiness," said the 57-year-old.

"It was challenging not just because of the characters, but also because of the dates and budget constraints as I had to play both characters almost simultaneously and that was not easy," he added.

The film also features Ali Fazal, Anisa, Amrita Raichand, Razzak Khan and Akshay Singh.
