VINDU DARA SINGH
One has seen Vindu Dara Singh in many avatars, ranging from Lord Hanuman to the winner of Bigg Boss but no one expected the well-built man to play a tiny gaming character. In the second level of Pepsi The Game, the tall and muscular Vindu will don a never seen before look... that of a 1-foot tall gaming character - 'Funk-Key'! Vindu aka Funk-Key will pose the second challenge to Youngistaan's heartthrob, Ranbir Kapoor. In the first level of Pepsi The Game, Ranbir gets stuck under water and in the second level, Sanjay Dutt - the Game Master sends his under-sized champ, Funk-Key to stop Ranbir from getting closer to his Pepsi. While Ranbir doesn't find tiny Funk-Key a threat initially, wait and watch what happens when hundreds of Funk-Keys appear in front of him.
Speaking about his look in Pepsi The Game Level 2 and the shooting experience, Vindu said, "When Pepsi guys approached me with the concept and a sketch of the look, I asked them if they're making the Indian version of Star Wars! I had to wear a funky orange, silver and green costume, which was quite heavy and I had to fly wearing the same in one of the sequences using harness... so, it was tough but lots of fun".
"Pepsi The Game is a big-budget, high-value production with a lot of special effects to make me look much smaller and create hundreds of clones. I am glad all the hard work has resulted in a great looking and entertaining concept that has never been seen on the Indian television screen. So watch out for me as Funk-Key in Level 2 of Pepsi The Game", he added.
Sources reveal that it was Vindu who named his character 'Funk-Key' as he found the look extremely funky and he is shown guarding a key that Ranbir has to find to reach his Pepsi and the hot WOW girl, Jacqueline Fernandez.
