Angad Bedi is said to be taking a nostalgic run into the most romantic era of Bollywood. Angad is marked his debut in South cinema in Hi Nanna. Paying homage and taking a cue from one of the most beloved romantic movies of the late 90s, Angad’s character, Arvind, draws inspiration from Salman Khan’s iconic role as Aman in “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.”
Angad Bedi’s character inspired by Aman from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Hi Nanna is a Telugu film geared to release in dubbed versions in Kannada, Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam. It marks Angad Bedi’s foray into the vibrant world of South Indian cinema. The film explores love, sacrifice, and the greater good, reminiscent of the timeless narrative presented in “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.”
In the film, Angad plays the love interest of Mrunal Thakur. He essays the role with striking similarities to Salman Khan’s portrayal of Aman. This subtle nod to the iconic character adds a nostalgic touch to Hi Nanna. This resonates with audiences across generations who hold a special place for the classic romance of the late ’90s.
Speaking about the same, Angad said, “People will find a lot of similarity between the character I play of Arvind in Hi Nanna and Aman which was played by Salman Bhai in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Though I don’t think one can compare to the great Salman bhai, it is fair. But yeah that character does have similarities. When I even read the script it reminded me of Aman from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Hi Nanna is a modern love story, but because Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is such an important film and changed the romance genre forever, Hi Nanna in many ways will remind people of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, especially my character, Arvind. But yeah those are some big shoes to fill and I have earnestly given my best to the character of Arvind in the most honest way possible”.
Speaking of Hi Nanna, it marks a collaboration between Mrunal Thakur and South star Nani. The movie has hit the theatres on 7th December, 2023.
