Actor Shreyas Talpade is keen to do an action film and if all goes well, he might soon be seen in one such potboiler on student politics.
"The thing is that you have grown up watching Amitabh Bachchan sir and all the masala entertainers, where drama, action, comedy all is part of one film. So somewhere as an actor I wanted to do it. It is not like because Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan are doing action films now I also want to do it. I will do action films if proper script comes my way," Shreyas told PTI in an interview.
The 36-year-old has been approached for an action film, for which he has been asked to bulk up and get into shape.
"There is a film that we are working on. It was based in Lucknow and it was more raw action kind of a film. It had nothing to do with cable or stylized action sequences, it was like politics, university, and all action stuff kind of a film. My director wanted me to bulk up a bit so I started working out on it. It is too early to talk about it," Shreyas said.
"It is set in Lucknow and the backdrop is Lucknow varsity and that is where the story unfolds. They are basically students, who get involved in politics and it is their story," he said.
Unfortunately the untitled film has got postponed.
"Things have got postponed. There were some issues happening with casting and hence they are taking time," Shreyas said.
Now the actor is basking in the glory of Sajid Khan's Housefull 2 that has done good business since its release.
"I am very happy with the response we have got. It feels great to hear that everyone has liked it. The entire team is happy with the response. I remember on the first day of the shooting, Sajid had said welcome on the sets of the biggest blockbuster film of the year. I hope Housefull 2 becomes a bigger hit than Golmaal 3," he said.
