Shreyas Talpade speaks up about casting the Deol brothers in Poster Boys


Bollywood actor Shreyas Talpade who’s upcoming directorial Poster Boys, releasing this Friday, said that his casting decisions are unaffected by the success and failures of the films. Talking about Sunny Deol’s few films which have failed to work in box office, while Bobby has been aloof from films for some period, Shreyas said, “I don’t believe in success and failure of previous films. If I think the actor is suitable for the character and I have imagined him for the role, then I know it will work. There are always ups and downs when it comes to the box office. So, instead of focusing on this phase, I was focused on making a good film.”

Although, the subject of the movie Poster Boys deals with Vasectomy, Shreyas said that Sunny and Bobby were unhesitant to do the film despite of the subject being a social taboo.

“Both Sunny and Bobby were extremely happy about the film. There was not a slightest hint of doubt or hesitation in their mind when they heard the subject. They readily agreed to be a part of it,” said Shreyas.

He further stated, “I had someone like Sunny in my mind for the film. We wanted to show a person who has the image of a macho man. Bobby’s character is fresh in this movie and no one has seen him playing such a role. I know him since long time and I know the character will be more suitable for him. He has worked hard for it.”

After the release of his Marathi production Poster Boyz, industry insiders recommended him to remake the movie in Hindi.

Shreyas said, “The Marathi film was successful and people liked it. So it would have been stupid to change anything. Only keeping Sunny and Bobby’s image in mind, we have changed the characters a little bit, but otherwise the crux of the story and screenplay are same.”
