RED depicts eroticism in the right light- Aftab
By Swati R Chaudhary, Bollywood Trade News Network
Aftab Shivdasani’s new hairdo is making news big time. The MAST lad desperately wanted a radical change and has almost gone bald for Vikram Bhatt’s RED. “I was discussing about this new look with Vikram when we were doing ANKAHEE. I was longing to see myself in a new light. I went to hair stylist Aalim Hakim. We experimented with various lengths but we weren’t getting the right look. Finally we zeroed in on this look. Vikram has been very supportive and we finally implemented the look in RED. I’m in love with this new look,” informs Aftab.
He sheds light on his character Neel Oberoi (RED) who’s diagnosed with a heart ailment and how he subsequently falls in love with Anahita played by Celina Jaitley. “RED signifies anger, passion, danger etc and hence goes with the film. It is a stylized film. My character Neel is a passionate, intense guy. Neel required to be portrayed in that light (referring to his ‘bald’ look). The look compliments my character in the film. I’ve never played something like this before. RED was a great opportunity for me as an actor,” gushes Aftab.
Apparently RED is an erotic thriller laden with heavy-duty bold scenes. The Aftab-Celina lip lock has generated enough hype already. “RED is a mature adult film. Much ado has been made over the so-called bold scenes. RED depicts love, sensuality and eroticism in the right light. It is a ‘part’ of the film, just as it’s a part of our lives. It has been aesthetically shot,” avers Aftab.
RED hits the marquee on 2nd March 2007.
Aftab has an interesting line up of upcoming films including LIFE MEIN KABHI KABHI, DE TAALI, SPEED etc.
