Filmmaker R Balki, recently in an interview, revealed why he chose Sunny Deol and Dulquer Salmaan in the lead roles for his new film Chup: Revenge of the Artist.
Balki revealed: “If you see Dulquer’s filmography, the kind of films he has done is outstanding. I have been watching him closely. I think he is one of the most nuanced actors that I have witnessed in Indian cinema. So I thought a role like this needed someone like him. I am glad he liked the script and agreed to do it.”
As far as Sunny Deol is concerned: “Same thing with Sunny Deol. A character like this required a king of presence which he had. Sunny has never done a role which is more silent but powerful rather than full dialogue-baazi which he usually does. It is also nice to see a person back looking fit, happy and good. This pairing was quite interesting for me. They are almost like two new people coming together”, added director Balki.
The filmmaker also spoke about the criticism and its adverse effects on people.
According to IndiaToday, Chup: Revenge of the Artist is written and directed by R Balki and will be releasing all over the world on the 23rd of September.
