Jaaved Jaaffrey is known for his excellent comedy and funny one liners, but this time he’s all set to spook the audience with his upcoming supernatural thriller Lupt. An actor, dancer, singer, comedian choreographer, VJ and ad filmmaker, he is known for donning various hats. But now he will be seen in a completely different avatar.
Essaying the role of a serious, competitive crass businessman, for a change, Jaaved plays an introvert whose ambitions have no limits. What is amusing is that, even while shooting a film of such a genre, Jaaved would send his costars and the entire cast into splits by his funny one liners. Though the movie is spooky, owing to his penchant for comedy, he was at his comic best on the sets despite playing an intense character.
“There were times when we shot some real intense, spine chilling scenes that would leave us exhausted at the end of the day, but Jaaved would come up with his witty one liners, and we would end up having a good laugh. Despite playing a serious character, Jaaved would lighten up the ambience on the sets,” recalls the director of the film, Prabhuraj.
Lupt boasts of an impressive ensemble cast being led by actors Vijay Raaz, Karan Aanand, Niki Walia, Meenakshi Dixit and Rishab Chadha, among others.
Produced by Hanwant Khatri and Lalit Kiri under their banner Fun Entertainments, Lupt is all set to send shivers down your spine on October 5 when it hits theatres. ST
