Tusshar Kapoor admits that he has a small equity in his forthcoming film, Char Din Ki Chandni, directed by Samir Karnik, but adds that he’s not the co-producer as has been reported. “I’m wait for the opportunity to produce a whole film on my own,” he says. “I need the right director and script first.”
He refuses to join hands with sister Ekta Kapoor and her company Balaji, pointing out that her mindset and choice of movies are different from his. “We keep our professional lives separate. I may act in one of her films or tie up on some project but being co-producers is out,” he asserts.
After a string of comedies, Tusshar is now experimenting with a rom-com. “Char Din Ki Chandni is a comedy with heroism. So far, people have seen me as the underdog, now they’ll see me as a hero,” he smiles. The film set in Rajasthan revolves around a four-day wedding, a Rajput family and a family from Punjab. “It has a North Indian flavor and for a change I play a loud and brash character,” he says.
“That was a real challenge for me.” The posters have him in two different looks, a sardar and a non-sardar. Is it a double role? He laughs, “Watch the film to solve that mystery yourself.”
