Actor Vije Bhatia has the rare honour of having acquired fame in two entertainment mediums-television and films! Not only does he have the distinction of featuring in two different RAMAYANA (2009 & 2012), additionally Vije is the only actor to essay powerful characters in both the editions.
As far as the film world is concerned, he held his own amongst actors of the caliber of Naseeruddin Shah and Anupam Kher in Neeraj Pandey's now iconic, A WEDNESDAY, and also got a lot of accolades in the recent release, MUMBAI 125 KM.
Not resting on past laurels, the selective Vije Bhatia is back with two more films, one Gujarati and the other in Hindi.
To know more we caught up with the soft spoken actor who told us, ''To an extent you are right. I am selective but right after MUMBAI 125 KM I got this Gujarati film, VAR TOH NRI J and LAKHON HAIN YAHAN DILWALE, and as both were different from the usual run off the mill stuff, I chose to work in them. As far as VAR TOH NRI J goes, it's not your usual Gujarati film. You know there is a craze amongst parents to marry their daughters to NRI grooms, so that she (daughters) can settle abroad, and it is a pan India phenomenon, not restricted just to Gujarat. In the film I am going around with this girl but her father opposes the relationship tooth and nail, not realizing till the last part where I reveal that I am also an NRI. The message that comes across in an entertaining way is - Think of your daughter's welfare and not just getting her married to an NRI.''
Elaborating on the other project, Vije reveals, ''LAKHON HAIN YAHAN DILWALE is a very unique subject where the film revolves around 10 songs (revamped) from the 60s, which originally featured evergreen stars like Shammi Kapoor etc. We have procured the rights from HMV. It is basically the journey of a boy from a small town who comes to a big city to achieve his dreams. The struggle, joy and disappointment to finally finding love and a happy ending. I have with me Krutika Gaikwad. The film also features Aditya Pancholi in a significant role,'' concludes Vije Bhatia.
