Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin, who will be seen in a negative role yet again in “Force 2”, after “Mardaani”, says two films is a short time for an actor to get slotted into a particular genre.
Tahir made his debut in Bollywood in 2014 crime thriller “Mardaani” as an antagonist named Karan Walt Rastogi.
Asked if he feared getting typecast, Tahir told IANS: “No, not at all. Actually two films is too short a time for an actor to get typecast. When you’ll watch the film (‘Force 2’), you will get that these are two different roles.”
The 29-year-old actor says that in “Force 2”, directed by Abhinay Deo and co-starring John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha, he has a grey character which makes it interesting.
“As an actor, what’s challenging is to surprise the audience… When they think it’s going to be something similar, but you do something totally different. That’s what I am looking forward to out of this (‘Force 2’),” Tahir added.
The actor also shared that he did not fear starting his career in an antagonist’s role.
“When you get a banner like Yash Raj Films and a director like Pradeep Sarkar… I don’t think anyone will think twice about the character,” he added.
