Actor Aparshakti Khurana said that he had an excellent time shooting for his quirky next release, Helmet. The film, co-starring Pranutan Bahl, is his first outing as a solo lead actor. He added that the audience response to the film will determine whether he should do leading roles within the future.
"I think these all are wishes of my family, colleagues and therefore the audience that each one this stuff are happening to me. If Helmet connects with the audience then people might believe whether I should play lead roles or not. If it doesn't connect, then people will say that it had been too early on behalf of me to try to to a lead-hero film and that i should have done two to 3 films in supporting roles. So, it's all very situational," said Aparshakti, while interacting with the media at dancer-choreographer Shakti Mohan's Break A Leg Season 2 shoot in Mumbai.
"Having said that, I had an excellent time shooting for Helmet. Whatever I even have seen and heard about it, it's all going great," the actor added.
Aparshakti has carved his niche as a fine actor and comedian with some interesting character roles and was recently seen within the dance hit, Street Dancer 3D.
"This is that the first time, I played an emotional character. I even have always played comic characters in films. once I wont to do theatre, I wont to do tons of dark and intense roles but once I started working in films, I continuously are doing comic characters which was a touch weird. I celebrated while playing an emotional character during this film and that i feel glad that it connected with the audience," he said.
Helmet, his first outing as a number one man, is directed by Satram Ramani.
Nushrat Bharucha, who was also present at the situation , talked about her upcoming film Chhalaang, co-starring Rajkummar Rao.
"We have recently launched the poster of the film. Everybody is happy to ascertain what's getting to happen within the film and why Raj (Rajkummar Rao) is sleeping within the poster of the film and what are we doing within the film. We are getting to release the trailer very soon, so i do not want to speak about it anymore. The film will release on March 13," she said about the film.
Chhalaang may be a comedy which is directed by Hansal Mehta and backed by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg.
