They are popular on television with a massive fan-following because of their positive roles, but that isn’t stopping these stars from channeling their negative sides in movies. After doing supporting roles in multiple films, now Ronit Roy and Ram Kapoor will play villains in upcoming films Boss and
"It is the biggest film of my life," says Ram, who will be playing triple roles in the Saif Ali Khan-starrer. “All Sajid Khan (director) films are big and it’s fun to play the main villain in such a crazy film. I am also playing a good guy and a mentally challenged guy in it."
Bipasha Basu and Riteish Deshmukh are the other stars of the film. Ram also plays the villain in Santa Aur Banta starring Boman Irani and Vir Das. “I am having fun playing a negative role, since that they are interesting parts,” feels Ram.
Ronit says, “This my first film as a proper villain. The script of Boss has been changed a lot, even though it is a remake of the south Indian film, Pokkiri Raja. Working with Akshay (Kumar, lead actor) and Tony (director Anthony D’Souza) is great as I have known them for years."
Ronit prepared hard for the action scenes and a bare-body fight scene and is excited by the response he has been getting for the promos. He feels Akshay is a legendary actor, “so I didn’t want to be the sore disappointment, which is why I worked harder than ever.”
