Television actor Gurmeet Choudhary who is presently seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi and known for television shows like Ramayan, Geet – Hui Sabse Parayi and Punar Vivaah, has now bagged a three-film deal with Vishesh Films. Ask him how he got on board, and he says, “Whenever I met Mukeshji (Bhatt) at some award functions, I’d go and exchange pleasantries with him. At one function, I received the Best Actor Award for one of my shows, and he congratulated me. Few days later, I got a call from his office and we met a couple of times. I think I am very lucky to have got this offer.”
The first film can be expected to go on floors in June-July. Ask Choudhary about the genre of the film, and he says, “I can’t say anything about the film and the character. When I started doing TV, I began with a mythological show like Ramayan. And it worked for me. So I believe in doing something different, and that’s how this film is.”
The actor will also begin workshops to prepare for his role. “When on the sets, it’s important to prepared and yet come across as spontaneous. So, definitely I will be preparing and begin workshops for the film soon,” he further adds.
