Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin, who will be seen in a grey character in “Force 2”, says “silly stereotypes” in the film industry annoy him.
The actor, who rose to fame with his negative character in “Mardaani”, added that an actor should be able to break the mould of a previous character, and take on new challenges. Sadly for him, he has only been getting offers to play negative characters post “Mardaani”.
“Ordinarily, I’m not an angry person at all, I’m quite a sarcastic, fun loving, romantic person but what I’m angry about today is the silly stereotypes, silly stereotypes in our everyday lives and in our films” Tahir said in a statement.
“And I hope that getting this Angries Award changes that” he added.
Tahir expressed his views when he got The Angries award for speaking up against the issue. The Angries is a special award by the team of the forthcoming film “The Angry Birds Movie”.
As the name suggests, the film is all about expressing anger, speaking up for right and finding a right way to channel anger. On the same lines, a campaign titled The Angries has been started wherein the birds award celebrities who get angry for a good cause.
Taking the basic structure of Rovio Entertainment’s mobile game of the same name, the movie brings the game’s action to the big screen in a witty manner.
In the game, angry but cute little birds fight it out with pigs which have stolen their eggs.
The film is supported by Jason Sudeikis as Red, Danny McBride as the volatile Bomb, Bill Hader as a pig, Maya Rudolph as Matilda, and Peter Dinklage as the Mighty Eagle. It will be distributed by Sony Pictures.
The film will hit the screens in India on Friday in English, Hindi and Tamil.
