Have you noticed? After the shocking failure of a spate of double-role films -- from Amitabh Bachchan in "Sooryavansham" to Kamal Haasan in "Abhay" and Shah Rukh Khan in "Duplicate" -- everyone has stopped looking at the genre.
But there is one brave heart. Aziz Sejawal has cast Arya Babbar in a double role in a film entitled "Do". That, too, when Arya has already failed in a double role in his debut "Ab Ke Baras" (he was the first Bhagat Singh of 2002, remember?)
Babbar has put "Baras" and "Mudda" behind him. "Disappointments are a part of growing up. I saw failure as a challenge and have been working on my body face and diction," he says. Like Dino Morea in "Raaz" (remember his whimpering debut in "Pyar Mein Kabhi Kabhi"?), Arya is ready for a second coming.
