View  Naqaab Movie StillsRemember the chubby boy who played one of the friends of Viveik Oberoi and John Abraham in KAAL? To give another reference, he was the same boy who played Shahid Kapoor's best friend MAMBO in ISHQ VISHQ! Earlier this year he was seen as Akshaye Khanna's best buddy in SALAAM E ISHQ while in the Friday gone by, he yet again played one of the close associates of Akshaye Khanna in NAQAAB.

He is Vishal Malhotra.

Well, if you have noticed, in each of his films like KAAL, SALAAM E ISHQ and now NAQAAB, he has held a video camera throughout his screen time.

In KAAL his camera captured all the wild moments in the 'jungle', including the identity (or the lack of it) of the 'bhoot' Ajay Devgan! On the other hand in SALAAM E ISHQ he held a video camera everywhere, be it Akshaye's bachelor party, Akshaye's moments of isolation with liquor, Akshaye's engagement party or any other follow-up sequence!

Now in NAQAAB he has continued the act by carrying his handycam everywhere, whether it is biking, partying or just walking the roads. His purpose behind doing so in each of the films may have been different but somehow the young guy has been trapped in a situation where a handycam is required to be his steady companion.

Looking at the young boy's fascination of holding the camera and capturing the moments as they come along, one wonders if even in real life he has a secret ambition of being a reporter/cinematographer/director!
