Actors Vinay Pathak and Neha Dhupia are coming together for the fourth time in “Pappu Can’t Dance Saala” and Pathak says the film marks the best performance of his co-star and former beauty queen and that she will hold the audience with her acting skills.
“This is one of Neha’s best performances from all the films she has done. She has done fabulous job. You will just sit up and notice and watch what she has done in the film. She is wonderful,” Vinay said in an interview.
Vinay says his character in “not Pappu, it is Vidyadhar Acharya, who is a native of Varanasi.”
“He belongs to Brahmin family and he is a very learned man. And that is what his problem is. He feels he is the most educated and learned man and, therefore, wants everybody to work on his terms.”
The light-hearted comedy is slated for Dec 16 release and revolves around a man who comes to Mumbai from Varanasi, and finds it difficult to adjust to a place away from his city that’s rich with cultural heritage. The film also features Rajat Kapoor and Naseruddin Shah.
Neha, 31, plays an ambitious girl in the film and said: “The character is very ambitious and brash. She knows what she wants in life. Her thoughts are clear and she knows exactly how to deal with situations. She is very hard and strict and at the same time very gentle, very kind and emotional. There are a lot of sides to her, which are sensitive at the same time very brash.”
Vinay and Neha have worked together in “Mithya”, “Raat Gayi Baat Gayi” and “Dasvidaniya”.
