Finished ‘Katha’ remake, shooting for ‘Baa Baaa Black Sheep’: Manish Paul

Mumbai, Feb 27 (IANS) Actor Manish Paul, whose film ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’ was recently released, has also completed shooting for the ‘Katha’ remake and is currently shooting for another film ‘Baa Baaa Black Sheep’.

“I’m doing ‘Katha’ which is the remake of an old film. I have finished that film. Apart from that I’m shooting for the film, ‘Baa Baaa Black Sheep’. So there are some projects going on,” said Manish Paul at a theatre here to gauge the audience’s response to ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’.

The original ‘Katha’ was directed by Sai Paranjpye and starred Naseeruddin Shah, Deepti Naval and Farooque Shaikh.

Manish will be playing a character based on Shaikh’s character in the remake, to be directed by Khalid Mohammed. And ‘Baa Baaa Black Sheep’ sees him sharing screen space with veteran actor Anupam Kher, who plays his father in the film.

Asked while ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’ is a comedy, his debut, ‘Micky Virus’ was a comic thriller, and considering his comic host image, is he open to trying another brand of comedy – adult comedy?

“I am not very comfortable doing adult comedy. I think I am happy the way I am. We are actors and our work depends on the roles we represent. Let’s see what’s in store for me in future,” he said.

About his February 26 release ‘Tere Bin Laden Dead or Alive’, he said: “I am excited to see that the theatre is almost going full. We work for this day so that the audience enjoys our work. We try to entertain them as much as possible. People are watching the movie and giving positive feedback. So, I am feeling very happy.”

‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive’ also stars Pradhuman Singh, Piyush Mishra and Sikandar Kher among others.
