Ronit Roy on 'Kaabil'

He may have portrayed negative characters before but actor Ronit Roy says he is excited to play a baddie in Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Kaabil‘.

The film, directed by Sanjay Gupta, is produced by Rakesh Roshan and also stars ‘Vicky Donor’ actress Yami Gautam.

There were reports that Hrithik will play the role of a blind man who avenges the death of his girlfriend. While Ronit did not divulge any details, the actor said he is excited to play a negative role along with his brother Rohit.

“I am playing a negative role along with Rohit. I am excited for that. I don’t think I am at much liberty to talk about the plot. But besides dealing with us negative people, Hrithik will be dealing with another big negativity which for him is his positivity. That’s a very interesting part of the script,” said Ronit.

The 50-year-old actor, known for his TV characters like Rishabh Bajaj and Mihir Virani, has previously done negative roles in ‘Udaan’ and ‘Guddu Rangeela’.

Ronit will start shooting ‘Kaabil’ by March-end and is happy to be part of such a big film.


“I am very fond of Hrithik as a human being and an actor. I have known Rakesh ji for many years and he is very fond of me too. It’s a great opportunity to work with Hrithik, Film Kraft, Sanjay and be a part of such a big film. In fact, my brother is playing my brother in the film too, so I am looking forward.”

Ronit will be next seen in the fictional sports-drama ‘Saat Kadam’. Directed by Mohit Kumar Jha, the film also stars ‘Kai Po Che’ actor Amit Sadh and Deeksha Seth.

“It is not entirely a sports film, but sports is a major part of it. There are a lot of love stories in it. The most primary is the relationship between a father and a son, the second is between them and football and the third is between the family,” he said.

The film mainly revolves around the generation gap and the relationship between a father and his son. Ronit, who has earlier played a father in ‘2 States’ said ‘Saat Kadam’ will show him in a different light.

The actor feels even though football is not a popular sport in India, he is happy that other sports are catching up and becoming popular.

‘Saat Kadam’ is scheduled to release mid-year.
