Actor Ravi Kishan, who rose to stardom with Bhojpuri films and has now found a strong foothold in Bollywood, is all-excited about his upcoming release Well Done Abba directed by Shyam Benegal.
The actor, who had earlier worked with Benegal in Welcome to Sajjanpur, claims that the veteran filmmaker considers him a passionate man and so gives him only such roles in his films.
"Shyam Benegal thinks I am a passionate man, so he casts me in such kind of roles. In Well Done Abba, I play a passionate husband who is not satisfied with his honeymoon and keeps dreaming of having an ideal one," Kishan told PTI.
In Welcome..., Kishan had portrayed the role of a village man who falls in love with a widow and wishes to marry her, ignoring the disapproval of people in their community.
The 38-year-old actor, who is juggling between small budget films and the big ones, will also be seen in Mani Ratnam's highly anticipated film Raavan, which stars Aishwariya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan in the lead.
"It is God's kindness that I get the chance to work with all kinds of directors, especially people like Shyam Benegal and Mani Ratnam. I try to make my self available for everyone, small or big, who want to work with me," said Kishan, who is also working with Ram Gopal Varma in new film Happy Journey.
