The India-Pakistan rivalry is something that refuses to die down in Bollywood. While some films are met with bans in the neighbouring country, actors crossing borders for better work prospects, often meet the same fate. Omung Kumar's next directorial 'Sarbjit' talks about a 23 year struggle of an innocent Indian man trapped in Pakistan.
At the ‘Tung Lak’ song launch, the director was questioned about the chances of his film facing a ban in Pakistan. Omung said, "There is nothing objectionable according to us. We will see the film and tell them that there is nothing objectionable in the film."
Randeep Hooda, who will be seen essaying the role of Sarbjit in the biopic feels both countries are at fault in such matters. Randeep said, "It's the problem from both the sides. I was in a helpless mindset while shooting for the film. He was the victim of the political strategy of both the countries."
Randeep is undoubtedly a fantastic actor, but he is admits being a little hesitant when it comes to dancing. Randeep put on his dancing shoes for the event and performed to the song ‘Tung Lak’. This song, which is the only ‘happy song’ in the film, also happens to be the first dance track for the actor.
When asked about shaking a leg on-screen the actor said, "The song is peppy and is a happy song. I feel dancing totally depends upon the mood and time of the day."
Richa Chadha, will also be seen playing a pivotal in the film as Sarbjit’s wife- Sukhpreet Kaur. The star has carved a niche for herself in the industry with such D-glam roles. Talking about the similarities between her characters in ‘Sarbjit’ and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, Richa said, "The only thing of my role in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and ‘Sarbjit’ is that it's a silent character. It is ageing very fast."
When asked weather they prefer playing realistic and fictional characters, Randeep said, "Characters are confined under script of the film. The look and information actually can limit you as an actor. The fictional ones have more liberty."
Richa on the other hand said, "There was no reference for Sukhpreet Kaur, so I worked a lot on mannerisms and body language and also internally."...
