I play an edgy character in `Shor In The City`: Tusshar Kapoor

New Delhi: Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor, who has recently seen box office success with his comic turn in the `Golmaal` trilogy, said that the upcoming `Shor In The City` shows him in an entirely new light.

"I have always played those positive naughty loveable characters in most of my films. This is the first time ever that I am playing an edgy character.

"In `Shoot Out At Lokhandwala`, I was more wild and furious.

Here I am far more stable minded and grounded. When compared to other characters in `Shor In The City` though, I am slightly darker," Tusshar told reporters.

The 34-year-old actor insisted that his character displays a humane side to him as well due to the fact that he is playing a married man.

"I am married to the character played by Radhika Apte which means there is a slight romantic angle as well. Moreover there is a touch of humour too though in it`s own unique way," said Tusshar.

"Tilak is endearing in his own way. He is someone who is coming out of the world of crime slowly. Whether he succeeds or not is something that forms a part of `Shor In The City`," he added.

The Raj Nidimoru-directed film has a gangster backdrop to it and is a thriller in the offing. "There are three stories in the film but they are running concurrently. Also, they are not totally connected; they are parallel to each other," said Tusshar.

The film is his home production and despite being the sole recognizable face in the film, Tusshar said he is one amongst the many parallel leads in the film.

"I am as equal as all other characters in the film. `Shor In The City` is an ensemble affair and there is no point for me to claim that I am a hero in the film or anything. In fact there is no quintessential hero or heroine here," Tusshar told PTI.

The films` promo also shows that the focus is not just on Tusshar but also other men like Sendhil Ramamurthy, Nikhil Dwivedi and Pitobash Tripathy.

"Yes, and that`s because we all are an equal part of this noise (shor)," laughed Tusshar.

"None of us is too much or too less in the film. We all have equal importance and prominence here," he added.

`Shor In The City` releases all over on Thursday, April 28. The film is co-directed by Nidimoru and Krishna DK who had earlier delivered the thriller `99` starring Kunal Khemu, Soha Ali Khan and Boman Irani.
