Rohit Roy, who is in town dubbing for Prabhat Roy’s ‘Bhorer Alo’ , will be playing a character inspired by Uddhav Thackeray in a Hindi film

Rohit Roy is on a new high. The actor, who is now in Kolkata dubbing for his second Bengali film titled ” Bhorer Alo”, has signed on a forthcoming Hindi film, where he is playing a character that’s loosely based on Uddhav Thackeray, the executive president of Shiv Sena. However, Rohit is tight-lipped about the project and only says that he has signed on two Hindi movies that will see him shooting in Mumbai for the next few months.

Says a source, “Rohit has signed on a film where his character is loosely based on that of Uddhav Thackeray. It is a very strong role. The film has a positive look at politics despite all the games involved in it. Rohit has already started his look tests. The buzz doing the rounds is that he will be seen in a completely new avatar.” On being asked if Rohit’s makeup will make him physically resemble Uddhav, the source says, “Well, not exactly as it is, after all, a fictional character. This character is a complete gentleman in politics. The film will offer an interesting take on the modernday political scenario.” Shooting for this film begins on April 15.

But, Rohit, who is awaiting an official announcement about the film soon, would rather talk about his excitment with dubbing in Bengali for the first time in his career. “Though I acted in “Pa Ma Ga Re Saa” , I never dubbed for it. In “BA”, I play an interesting Casanova with grey shades. Women fall for him all the time but he is very definite about what he wants and about the lengths he’ll go to to achieve it. Coincidentally, I play a rockstar in both “PMGRS” and “BA”. I’m glad my producer, Vaishali Dalmia, backed me wholeheartedly. A friend of mine sat with me in Mumbai and read the entire script. I’m sure that “PMGRS” didn’t connect with the viewers because they know my voice so well from my “Swabhimaan” days,” Rohit says.

Well, for someone who is all set to indulge in on-screen powerplay, Rohit sure knows the power of his voice too.
