You wouldn’t believe it seeing this photo, but Uday Chopra, the funny guy from Dhoom 2, is the man in charge here.
In the three years that passed between that film and now, Uday made news only for his break-up with Kajol’s sister Tanisha, also his Neal ‘N’ Nikki co-star. He is returning to cinemas in a film he has produced, playing a character he has written. The director is his brother Aditya Chopra’s friend, Jugal Hansraj.
In the film, the geeky Uday falls for the sexy Priyanka Chopra in cheeky shorts. That the twain shall ever meet looks next to impossible; hence, the title Pyar Impossible.
Though his look is comic and Uday describes the film as a “rom-com”, there will be no buffoonery a la Ali from Dhoom 2. The laughs will come from the situation. “He is a geek and she is the most beautiful girl in the world, and [it’s about] how he would make this girl fall in love with him,” says Uday.
Bhaiya was supportive. “If there’s something I believe in, he stands by it,” says little bro. As for Aditya’s aversion of the media, Uday explains, “Adi loves watching his films in a cinema. He loves his popcorn. He escapes publicity to live a normal life, not that of a celebrity.” He lets out a little fact about himself: “I’m a geek, of sorts. A new gadget interests me more than a bit of gossip.”
