Led into Bollywood by the Bhatt camp in movies like Aashiqui (1990) and Junoon (1992), actor Rahul Roy is all set to make a comeback as an actor as well as a producer and director.
Rahul dabbled with production last year with a Bhojpuri film, Elaan, under the banner of Rahul Roy Productions, featuring Bhojpuri megastar Manoj Tewari in the lead role and taking on the issue of corruption.
“I had produced a Bhojpuri film last year in November and it did quite well. So, then I decided to produce a Hindi film. It is not easy, the Hindi film industry is different and much bigger. I am almost done with the script, it is a romantic-thriller,” said Roy.
Rahul is also ready to don the hat of actor, as well as the producer-director for this venture. “I am keen to go back to Hindi films, both as an actor and hopefully as a director. I might end up directing this film. Also, I might act in the film...I haven’t thought about acting yet...but direction is likely to happen,” Roy said.
The untitled venture is said to have two male actors in the leading role. “We would have two actors and one heroine. One actor will be from south and the other actor and the lead actress from Bollywood,” Rahul said.
“When I was writing the script, I did have stars in my mind, but can’t reveal their names, it is too early,” he said. The film is likely to go on floors later this year.
