The Roy brothers, Ronit and Rohit have been the famous faces of Indian television for almost 20 years. They both have done many TV serials, films and shows. However, they have worked together only once. It was in 2006 in a show called Sarkar on Zee TV. After 10 years, they will be seen working together in Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil releasing this January.
The Roy brothers play villains in the Hrithik Roshan- Yami Gautam starrer directed by Sanjay Gupta. Both the brothers always wanted to work together but never got the opportunity. It was only in 2006 when Shobha De wrote ‘ Sarkarr -Rishton Ki Ankahi Kahani’ that they both shared screen place. The show was loosely inspired from the Gandhi family. Ronit played Rajiv Gandhi and Ronit played Sanjay Gandhi. Divya Seth essayed Indira Gandhi’s character. The political family drama had a decent run but could not be as popular as ‘Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki ‘ and ‘ Kyunki Saas Bahu Kabhie Bahu Thi’ type shows.
The Roy brothers have been the frontrunners of Indian TV shows. They have done quite a few films as well. ‘Kaabil’ brings them together in strong negative roles. While Ronit plays a don, Rohit plays his close aide who puts Hrithik Roshan and Yami in a soup. For the negative roles in ‘Kaabil’ it was director Sanjay Gupta who wanted the Roy brothers to play these negative roles. The characters are quite important.
In the film Hrihtik and Yami play a blind husband and wife and how a situation makes them to do something that’s a plot to commit a crime. Rohit and Rohit play the masterminds behind the trap laid for Ronit and Rohit.
Ronit was last seen in Adalat 2 and Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar while Rohit was seen in Sab TV’s Peterson Hill. Ronit has been known for his perfect acting in films like Udaan, 2 States and Guddu Rangeela. Rohit also has been doing small roles in films but Kaabil will be one important role for him. So, watch out for the Roy brothers in Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil that is helmed by Sanjay Gupta.
