Dino Morea, who is back after completing a six-month acting course with Delhi-based theatre director N. K. Sharma, is now looking out for performance-oriented roles in films. The actor said he is eyeing a very interesting character in Sanjay Gupta’s Mumbai Saga which will take off in May. “I first want Sanjay to take my look test and only if he signs me will I talk about the role. I have made a portfolio with different looks and am approaching producers and directors to show that I am interested in taking on new challenges,” said Morea who was last seen in Gupta’s Acid Factory.
Purab Kohli plays a water diviner in Jal
The first look of Purab Kohli in Girish Malik’s Jal was out recently. The actors plays a water diviner (one who searches for water) in the film which talks about the water problems in Kutch. Kohli’s character Bakka is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert, and the actor had to don the avatar of a traditional Kutchi man. “The toughest part was getting the body language and accent of people living in Kutch right and learning how to ride a camel. All this required about a week of observing and living with the natives of Kutch. Otherwise, growing my hair and beard was easy, as was wearing a dhoti, as it is one of the most comfortable garments,” said the actor.
Meanwhile, Purab will also surprise all in his upcoming film, Shaadi Ke Side Effects, in which he plays a nerd techie, who is Vidya Balan’s neighbour. “It is a special appearance with two-three scenes. I am this guy who stumbles into Vidya’s life and drives Farhan Akhtar crazy,” informed the actor.
