Success and failures do not affect his casting decisions says Shreyas Talpade

Vastavam web: Sunny and Bobby Deol may have not had a blockbuster in recent times, but director of their upcoming film “Poster Boys”, Shreyas Talpade says success and failures do not affect his casting decisions.Sunny’s last few films such as “Ghayal Returns” and “I Love New York” failed to make an impact at the box office, while Bobby has been away from the silver screen for quite some time now.”I don’t believe in success and failure of previous films. If I think the actor is suitable for the character and I have imagined him for the role, then I know it will work.

The movie deals with a subject which is often considered a social taboo, but Shreyas says Sunny and Bobby were not hesitant to take up the project.”Both Sunny and Bobby were extremely happy about the film. There was not a slightest hint of doubt or hesitation in their mind when they heard the subject. They readily agreed to be a part of it.” The actor-director, 41, says he always had Deol brothers in his mind for the Hindi remake of “Poster Boyz”.”I had someone like Sunny in my mind for the film. We wanted to show a person who has the image of a macho man.

The actor says soon after the Marathi film “Poster Boyz” released, which he had produced, industry insiders suggested he should remake the movie in Hindi.”The Marathi film was successful and people liked it.So it would have been stupid to change anything. Only keeping Sunny and Bobby’s image in mind, we have changed the characters a little bit, but otherwise the crux of the story and screenplay are same,” he says.
