Vasan Bala who had assisted Anurag Kashyap in films like Dev D, Gullal, Bombay Velvet and Raman Raghav 2.0 extols actress Bhagyashree’s son Abhimanyu Dassani. Abhimanyu is all prepping up to be launched in Vasan Bala’s directorial Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota.
Talking about the same, Vasan said, “I am not launching anyone, for me (he) is an actor. I love him as an actor. He is a great actor. He is a newcomer, I just gave him an opportunity.”
When asked about the stress of launching a star’s son, he said, “I am not a launch kind of a guy. I am a regular director. I have not given any Rs 100 crore hit or anything that I feel the pressure to launch or make anyone’s career. I am yet to make my own career.”
As per the reports Anurag Kashyap’s production house Phantom Films was supposedly to produce the movie, however, Vasan refuted such reports and said, “He (Kashyap) is not the producer of the film. Let the poster and teaser come out.”
Vasan’s directorial debut Peddlers never got a commercial release, however, it was screened at 2012 International Critics’ Week. Speaking about Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota which will be released next month, Vasan Bala said, “It is an entertaining film and it has lot of action in it. We have not started shooting so it is too early to talk about anything. We will start shoot next month.”
Abhimanyu has been training for the film for a year as the film will feature some action scenes.
