Having played a supporting actor in many films, his stellar performance as Bharat 'idiot' Bhushan in 'Bheja Fry' made Vinay Pathak an overnight star. He is known for his impeccable comic timing and poignant performances in films like 'Dasvidaniya', 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi', 'Aaja Nachle', 'Mithiya', 'Chalo Dilli' and more. Vinay, who has already had seven releases this year is back again with a rib tickling rom-com 'Pappu Can't Dance Saala'.
Vinay Pathak talks about his upcoming films, working with co-star Neha Dhupia, being stereotyped as a simpleton and more.
Tell us something about your character in the film 'Pappu Can't Dance Saala'?
I play the role of Vidyadhar Acharya, who comes from an educated upper class family in Banaras, he is well read and educated. He gets a job in Mumbai so he moves there. As everyone knows, the living arrangements in Mumbai are a little tricky if you don't have a house of your own. He goes through a lot of turmoil in order to rent an apartment and finally he finds one and that's where he meets his neighbour Mehak Malavde (Neha Dhupia), who is diametrically opposite to what he is. She is a bindas young girl who loves enjoying her life, she keeps having parties and keeps calling her friends over for drinks and dance. They keep judging each other for their choice of profession and the place they come from. Vidyadhar doesn't like Mumbai, he feels that the people in Mumbai have no understanding of language, it's a very crowded city, he has problems with everything because he is like a fish out of water who is trying to adjust in a big city but is finding it very difficult.
