Rahul Roy returns to films with `To Be Or Not To Be`
New Delhi: `Aashiqui` star Rahul Roy is making a comeback to the big screen after a gap of six years with psychological thriller `To Be Or Not To Be`, where he is playing a negative role.
The film, which will simultaneously be released in English, revolves around a couple whose marriage is on the rocks.
"The script of the film is brilliant and I was really looking for this kind of strong storyline to make my comeback. The story has got everything and when people watch the film they will realise why I am saying so. I am happy with the way it is shaping up," Rahul said in an interview.
In the film, Rahul is playing the character of a possessive husband.
"Mine is a mad character. He questions a lot of thing about his marriage. The story of the film is based on one night and every characters has dark shades," he said.
Being directed by Virendrra Lalit, `To Be Or Not To Be` will hit theatres mid next year. The film also stars Telugu film actress Akansha Shivhare and newcomer Trivikram Matoo.
Having started his career with 1990 Bollywood romantic musical drama `Aashiqui`, Rahul, 45, became a phenomenon with his debut hit. But he failed to replicate the success of his first film.
"I don`t look back at my career. My journey was not hard because I have seen stardom and the downfall very closely in my career. I have done films because I believed in them.
"I don`t want to blame someone for my downfall. I will continue doing films till my last breathe and will regain my respectability in the industry," he added.
Rahul took a break from the films when nothing exciting came his way only to witness a career revival following his win in reality TV show `Bigg Boss` in 2006.
"The serial also contributed to my career. It brought me into people`s mind and made me popular again after `Aashiqui` as they voted for me to win," he said.
Rahul is also happy with way the `Aashiqui 2`, directed by Mohit Suri, was made.
"It was a brilliant film. Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur recreated the same magic as Anu (Agarwal) and I did 23-years ago. Music was brilliant. Mohit made a brilliant film on today`s time. Though it didn`t make any new record in terms of the box-office collection, it was a good film," he said.
Rahul will be next seen in in a 3D film `Shoot Run Kill`.
