“When the first trailer of Guddu Rangeela came out everyone started complimenting the actors pair of Arshad and Amit. There is closeness to the legendary best friends-brothers pair of Jai-Veeru (Sholay), Karan-Arjun and Ram-Lakhn like Arshad is mature while Amit is jovial.
‘Guddu Rangeela’ is my tribute to jodi like Jai-Veeru, Karan-Arjun, Ram-Lakhan etc. They are two loveable, funny and quirky underdog characters. They are simple and vulnerable, but very intense and gutsy when required,” Subhash Kapoor told PTI.
In Subhash’s previous projects from “Phas Gaye Re Obama” to “Jolly LLB”, characters they are always crucial to the story. The director said this is why casting is of prominence importance to him.
In his statement director Subhash sai, “I always go by the demand of a script. I tell story from the real world and then cast actors accordingly. For the kind of films I make, casting is crucial.”
“Arshad Warsi is apt for this film. After ‘Jolly LLB’ I do share a great bond with him and that is an added advantage as he understands my style of working. We both have faith in each other. I met Amit four-five years back even before ‘Kai Po Che’ released. For this film I felt Amit suits in the role,” added by Subhash in his statement.
The filmmaker seems to have found comfort in satirical dramas.
“I love to do films on real world. Like “Guddu Rangeela” is on honour killing. The issue is complex but we put it out in humorous, satirical way,” he said to PTI.
“There are various issues that we can highlight through cinema. This style of filmmaking is challenging. Towards the end of the film, we want to make the point clear to them (audience) but in a satirical way,” Subhash added.
“I want to do a political drama featured film. It will happen after ‘Jolly LLB 2’. The film will be set up in a political world, I want to explore this space as it interests me… Excites me,” he said.
“We will show corruption, nepotism, Indian political family drama, But I don’t know what exactly we will be able to show,” Subhash said.
