Not worried about getting typecast: Tahir Bhasin
In his second Bollywood outing Force 2, Tahir Bhasin is donning a negative character again but the actor says he is not apprehensive of getting pigeonholed. Tahir, who is playing the main antagonist in the John Abraham-starrer film, said gone are the days when characters used to be one dimensional.
“I am not worried about getting typecast because if I think so I will underestimate the intelligence of our audience, who look more towards the relatable factor than a particular type,” Tahir told a media person.
“I think the great thing about today’s industry is characters are no longer black and white. They have got so many dimensions in them. I would like to pick <g data-gr-id="37">variety</g> of roles <g data-gr-id="33">tahat</g> will appeal the audience and have <g data-gr-id="38">human</g> quality.”
Force 2, the sequel to the 2011 film of the same name, is a gritty crime drama directed by Abhinay Deo and produced by Vipul Shah. The shooting will begin in Budapest from the third week of this month. It stars Sonakshi Sinha in the female lead role. “I have watched the film’s first part. It’s a completely different and new storyline and Abhinay Deo is directing it. Although the film maintains the franchise name but the look and story of the film will be completely different,” he said.
The 28-year-old Delhi boy made a promising debut as a kingpin of a women-trafficking gang in Yash Raj Films’ Mardaani opposite Rani Mukerji, who played a tough cop. “My character in Force is in a completely different space from my previous role. And that’s the reason I chose to be a part of it. The character allows me to do <g data-gr-id="34">different</g> thing. I have a completely revamped look in the film,” said Tahir, who has been prepping hard for the film.
