Rishi Kapoor has always been the actor to evolve with age. With no stop sign emerging in his career graph anytime soon, the actor shared the first look of his upcoming film ‘Mulq’. The Anubhav Sinha directorial, started filming a few days ago and Rishi Kapoor could not stop himself from tweeting out his look. The star has also changed his Twitter profile to his new look today.
While social media raves over his transformed look, this will not be the first time Kapoor portray a Muslim character after his tryst with Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Amar Akhbar Anthony’ playing Akbar in the comedy drama. Mulq, however, will be on the serious side as it is expected to be a social thriller. The movie has the back drop of a small town joint family seeking revenge for their embroiled controversy. The film also stars the likes of Taapsee Pannu, Prateik Babbar, Rajat Kapoor and Ashutosh Rana with Neena Gupta playing Kapoor’s wife while Taapsee Pannu plays the role of his daughter-in-law.The movie co-written by Anubhav Sinha and Mushtaq Shiekhis is slated for a 2018 release, but Kapoor already has other line-ups which will see him play hilarious roles on screen before that. Following the thread to his profile picture, he tweeted yet another picture from his other project with Amitabh Bachchan, ‘102 Not Out’.
His excitement about ‘Mulq’ was well reserved in his answers to an ANI question, “I have not done drama in a long time and when Anubhav narrated the film to me, I loved the concept of the film. Shooting in Benaras and Lucknow will be an added bonus since I have heard such great stories about the cities.”
