After garnering huge acclaims for Khosla Ka Ghosla, director Dibakar Banerjee is all set with his next venture titled Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye. The film has Abhay Deol, Archana Puran Singh, Neetu Chandra and a newcomer Richa Chadha with Paresh Rawal playing a triple role.
Highlighting the kind of research Banerjee has done for the film, he says, "Unlike, Khosla Ka Ghosla which was for middle class, this film demanded me to know the mind of criminals, their relationship with elites, police and other criminals and the way police treats them."
Without revealing much about the character of Paresh Rawal in the film, Banerjee says, "Paresh Rawal is doing a triple role with the two characters namely Dr. Brijkishore Handa and Googie Arror and third name if taken will give out the entire storyline of the film which I don't want to do. But he is doing something which he has never done before." And what does Abhay do in the film? "Abhay plays an extremely handsome, charismatic and very talented thief leading a luxurious life. Someone who is very stylish and has lots of girlfriends and is usually spotted in five stars hotels," states Banerjee.
Talking about the costumes chosen for different characters in the film he informs, "Since, my film is set in Delhi; we would go out on the streets of Delhi to study various characters because I am very particular about the kind of reality I depict in the film. Like the kind of research done was very crucial in the case of Paresh Rawal's different characters in the film. He further adds, "Even in the case of Abhay's costumes which are very well designed as he starts a normal thief and then later climbs up the status graph and becomes a very rich and well known crook."
The release date of the film will be finalized after its completion by the end of August. Banerjee's next, post Oye Lucky, Lucky Oyewill be a thriller based in Calcutta, which is expected to go on floors next year.
