“Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive” actor Pradhuman Singh says that Sikandar Kher is the dark horse of the upcoming film, courtesy his double role in it.
“Sikandar is the dark horse of the film. His character is brilliant. He’s playing a white guy and a Punjabi guy; it’s a kind of a double role – the same person, but he changes his appearance,” Pradhuman said here.
Sikandar is returning to the big screen almost three years after his last film “Aurangzeb” hit the screens.
While he is seen with blonde hair and a foreign accent as a white guy, he sports a hairy look and a paunch for his Punjabi avatar.
Pradhuman, who famously essayed Noora in the 2010 film “Tere Bin Laden”, said he had “unparalleled fun” while working with Sikandar and Manish Paul in the movie’s sequel.
“None of them (the actors) had any insecurity in them. We were supporting each other,” he said, adding that they became friends during the making of the film.
Pradhuman is also one of the writers of the film, an idea which came from its director Abhishek Sharma. He says he’s “extremely happy” with the outcome “because it has been exactly the kind of characters that I wanted to write”.
Both Pradhuman’s and Manish’s characters are strugglers in the film. While the former is a struggling singer, Manish is a struggling filmmaker.

Any references from real life struggles?
“The ups and downs are there with every actor and entertainer. And this pain we have put on paper, but we are not trying to accumulate emotions. It is a full-on fun and enjoyment film.
“If you can laugh on your struggles, then nothing could be bigger than that,” he concluded.
“Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive” will release on February 19.
