Mumbai: Bollywood actors Rajeev Khandelwal, Tena Desae and Paresh Rawal promoted their upcoming action thriller film ‘Table No.21’ here this week.
The film is likely to send chills down your spine, with Rawal playing a negative character and donning a baldpate. All the three play pivotal characters in the film, which revolves around a live game. The tagline of the film is ‘If you lie..you die’.
Rawal, who is well known for his perfect comic timing experiments, this time plays the role of a suave game host, who keeps his guests on tenterhooks all the time. While speaking to reporters, he said that he had never attempted something like this in his career span and added that there was a suspense element as far as his role in the film is concerned.
“My role does not have the same kind of negativity that you visualize when you see the promos of this film. This kind of a negative role is different and in some ways justified. When you see the film, you will get to know, whether my role is negative, positive, grey or what,” he said.
Khandelwal, who has earlier worked his magic on the silver screen with offbeat films like ‘Aamir’ and ‘Shaitan’, said that the script of this film was demanding and required him to do a lot of homework to excel in this role.
He has also had a successful television career, as host of the popular reality show ‘Sach Ka Saamna’, a truth and lie game.
“For me, it was like, I couldn’t see myself. I said I just can’t do this. The script was too demanding,” he said.
Desae looked elegant in western attire and happily posed for shutterbugs. Directed by Aditya Dutt and produced by Viki Rajani and Sunil Lulla, the film is shot in the picturesque Fiji islands. The film is slated for a worldwide release on January 4, 2013.
