Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin, who recently featured in a romantic short film “Road Trip”, says that he has received compliments from people saying that they prefer him as a “lover boy”.
“One of the biggest compliments I got was people who say that ‘we prefer him like this, we like to see the lover boy’ because as an actor when you’re trying a different genre, you are always a bit sceptical if people will like it or not,” Tahir said.
Tahir featured opposite Nimrat Kaur in the short film for Y Films, which was the first from the set of six short stories called “Love Shots”.
Tahir’s romantic character in the film was a deviation for him, considering his role of a girl trafficker in “Mardaani”.
“When ‘Mardaani’ came out, one of the great compliments was that we hated the character but we loved the guy. So that was a great compliment to get, especially from female fans. In real life I’m shy sometimes, sometimes I’m romantic, sometimes I can be funny, so it’s great to be doing different kinds of parts that expose your personality,” he said.
Tahir will next be seen on screen in director Abhinay Deo’s “Force 2” and “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz”, which features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Chitrangada Singh.
