Comic actor Vinay Pathak will be returning to the big screen at the end of October with his new movie Dasvidanya. The movie is about an ordinary Mumbaiker who starts each day with a ‘to do’ list. One morning, he decides to make his list ‘10 things to make my life worthwhile before I die’ and then sets about achieving them — with unforeseen consequences! The movie also stars Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey and Neha Dhupia.
Vinay has previously been seen in Khosla Ka Ghosla, Bheja Fry, Jism, Manorama Six Feet Under, Mixed Doubles, Water and Johnny Gaddaar. He also recently popped up in Via Darjeeling.
Vinay and Ranvir have been the greatest of friends since Bheja Fry was such a big hit and shared the hosting role on the TV series Ranvir Vinay Aur Kaun. Is their good friends act natural for them? “Our chemistry is neither morphed nor choreographed,” says Vinay. “We’ve known each other for many years. And the talk show that we’re doing Ranvir Vinay Aur Kaun … has only brought us closer. We hang out together, so doing a show together is no strain. We get to meet so many people who are friends and also people we’ve never met before. Like I met Karan Johar, Tusshar Kapoor and Neha Dhupia on the show for the first time.”
Next up for Vinay is SRK’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, which also stars newcomer Anushka Sharma.
