The cast of Bullett Raja was recently at a cool event and in attendance were stars Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Shergil, Ravi Kissen, Chunkey Pandey, Gulshan Grover and writer-director Tigmanshu Dhulia as well as music directors Sajid-Wajid, and producer Rahul Mittra.
The event not only announced a partnership with Sansui, it also released the special comic titled “The Legend of Bullett Raja”. It also had the cast sitting down to answer some questions.
Talking about the film, the Paan Singh Tomar director said, “I am attempting a ‘masala’ film for the first time. ‘Masala’ is a derogatory word. It’s the first time that I am making a film of this scale. I will change the face of commercial cinema and give it better value. It will be aesthetically better.”
About the character the director said, “Bullett Raja is a gangster with values.”
Saif said he was excited to play a gangster, “After so many years, I got a chance to play a character which is very different from me. I always wanted to play a gangster
He added, “There is action in the film but yet no violence; there is comedy but no vulgarity. So, it is a good action drama set in the background of Uttar Pradesh. I’m very glad I could be part of it.”
Sonakshi said, “I play a struggling actress who is Bengali. A very, very interesting character.”
Saying he had a great time working with Saif, Jimmy Shergil said he and Saif had a real bond on set, in fact the whole cast did he says and thinks that will show on screen.
Baddie Gulshan Grover said one of the main reason he wanted to do the film was to work with director Tigmanshu Dhulia. He had nothing but praise for the film especially co-star Sonakshi Sinha and her character! He also praised Saif saying, “Saif gives 100% to the shot and he throws a challenge to the actor.” Adding it was such a pleasure to work on this film!
Chunky Pandey revealed a bit about his character, “I play Lallan Tiwari in the film. It’s a very fun character but when he gets angry, he becomes a deadly villain. The getup, my dialogues, that Tigmanshu has given me, it is all so realistic that when I was dubbing for the film, I couldn’t recognize myself. I have never worked with a director like Tigmanshu; it was really fun.”
