Nitin Kumar Gupta on casting Rahul Roy in Sayonee…


Be it Aashiqui or his victory in the first season of reality show Bigg Boss, Rahul Roy has always been a prominent name in the industry. He might have been inactive in Bollywood for a while, but Rahul has never been forgotten, says director Nitin Kumar Gupta. Rahul plays lead in Nitin’s film Sayonee. Talking about why he cast him, Nitin says, “When we went through a list of actors who would fit in the Indo-Russian look, and have not been stereotyped, Rahul Roy was a fantastic choice. We knew he would work incredibly well if we modernised his look, keeping in mind that his hairstyle had been an instant success.”

He adds, “I have known Rahul for over eight years. He had asked me to compose music for a film he had produced titled Elaan. Thus, I was incredibly happy when I got the chance to cast him in my production eight years later.”
