Khayali slips into his jatt avataar for his first Haryanvi film
I am the item boy of laughter, Khayali crawls in and out of swings at the Press Club,making sure the shutterbugs capture his best shot. In town for a prelude of sorts to his first Haryanvi film,Khayali quickly clears the air by saying hes not into regional cinema. Frankly,I dont want to be a part of regional cinema because theres no big budget,concept,marketing or distribution, he,however,took up Ved Prakashs Ruk Ke Padge because its the first decent film thats coming from Haryanvi cinema after Chandrawal. Its a comedy,something like Bawarchi, Khayalis playing a witty hazar-jawab servant in the film. Ive done solo acts,then in a jodi with Karishma Tanna,now were doing comedy with children and boy its a mahabharat with them! They reprimand you if you forget or tweak the lines! But anyways,the point is that Ive always looked forward to something new…I like to experiment,so this films also one, Khayali says it was his typical jatt accent that landed him the role and a place in the comedy circle. In fact,hes flooded with TV offers because people think hes lucky for their show. Also,that I look good in all those funny item numbers, he rolls through Bhootni Ke which catapulted him to filmi success. This Friday,hes looking forward to two item songs in the film,Meri Padosan. Then there are two untitled films with Govinda and Sunny Deol, seems like the mans quite packed!
Meanwhile,the films director Ved Prakash and villain,Sikandar Saroha joined in. Prakash is on the lookout for lead romantic pair for which auditions will be held on April 16 at Hotel KLG,Sector 43,Chandigarh from 10am to 6pm. All you need is looks and Haryanvi accent! My films issue based,but Ive dealt in a comic manner,and the title means Halla mach gaya. Its total hungama, says Prakash whos planning a Rs 20 crore Hindi film after this. Hmmm.
