A joint venture film of Moser Baer Entertainment and Idiot Box, HIDE AND SEEK is produced Apoorv Lakhia and Laxmi Singh and the film stars Purab Kohli, Arjan Bajwa, Ayaz Khan, Samir Kochchar and former Miss Earth Amruta Patki. We had a brief chat with Purab on his new film, here are some excerpts
HIDE AND SEEK is an interesting title. What kind of film is it?
It’s not just the title; I believe the movie is interesting too. It’s a dark and mysterious flick about 6 childhood friends who play a game of hide and seek on Christmas
“HIDE AND SEEK is not a usual thriller flick, it will keep you glued!”
Tell us about your role in the film.
I play the character of Om and I’m paired opposite Mrinalini Sharma, who plays Jyotika in the film.
HIDE AND SEEK has a huge star-cast. Did it have much scope for your character?
Definitely! Each character in the movie is significant and we had enough scope to play our roles as the story itself is of 6 friends.
HIDE AND SEEK boasts of a thriller tag. Is this movie any different from what we’ve seen before?
HIDE AND SEEK is not a usual thriller flick; it will keep you glued to your seats. Different techniques have been used in the film which makes the film quite mysterious. It’s Shawn’s debut and hats off to him for being so creative in first film.
You’ve always chosen very unconventional roles in your past films. What genre of films you exactly want to do?
Well, I always wanted to act in an action packed film but never got a chance. I’ve already worked in a serious film like MY BROTHER NIKHIL and now I’m working on a typical Bollywood flick full of dance and songs.
You’ve worked with so many directors, whom did you like working with the most?
I’ll be brutally honest here, I really like working with Onir who made the film MY BROTHER NIKHIL and BAS EK PAL. I think he’s extremely creative and I’m currently working with him in his upcoming film I AM which is based on a set of different stories.
Tell us about your upcoming films.
There is I AM with Onir as I mentioned before then a movie with the director of BHEJA FRY and also GEETA IN PARADISE, RECTANGULAR LOVE STORY and 42 KMS.
We’ve heard that you are planning a movie with Yash Raj banner?
Well, we’re discussing on that project. Let’s see!
