SARTAJ SINGH PANNU
In a time when the industry is obsessed with actors with six or eight pack abs, here's an actor who begs to differ.
Sartaj Singh Pannu, who is making his debut with the upcoming film SOCH LO, believes that the concept of six and eight packs is not a healthy trend as it reduces actors to mere physical appearances. Speaking about it, the actor says, "At the end of the day looks alone can't carry a film forward. The actor has to impress with his acting too. Sadly, the trend of hiding behind the physique is making a mockery of the acting talent."
Though the actor spots six packs in his film SOCH LO, but he thinks it was the requirement of the character and not a clichéd formula to undermine the acting talent. He adds, "In SOCH LO, I spot a six-pack look since it's the need of the plot. It's not like any other senseless projection of the brawn which serves no purpose."
It must be recalled that SOCH LO is already creating waves for its unique subject. The film is getting set to release in India soon.
