Filmmaker Harshavardhan Kulkarni says that when he was casting the protagonist’s role for ‘Hunterrr’, he wanted “today’s Amol Palekar”, which he ultimately found in Gulshan Devaiah.


Kulkarni told IANS: “I had approached many people for the role. I was looking for today’s Amol Palekar for ‘Hunterrr’. When I met Gulshan, he seemed interesting. I gave him the script and he said, ‘Should I play Mandar’s role like how Amol Palekar used to act?’. I told him you have got the script right.”

Gulshan has sported a shabby look for the role.

The director says that the subject of “Hunterrr”, which is about a sex addict, had been on his mind for long time. But the idea was not to make it into a sleazy film.

“When I wrote it, I shared it with many people, and the response was good. I have maintained a thin line…it’s neither too sleazy, nor too arty.”
