Definitely a director like Shankar must have seen the talent that Bollywood might have failed to see. The actor as per reports holds very high regards for the Tamil film industry.
Did the Bollywood industry failed to recognize the talent behind the womanizer image of Upen Patel?
Upen Patel made his debut in Hindi films in the year 2006.
The model turned actor gained instant fame and recognition and of course female attention.
Remember the movie 36 China Town?
There were talks all over about his looks and girls would drool over the song ‘Aashiqui’ from the same movie. But that was the time Himesh Reshammiya too was much hyped. He only sang this very song.
So what happened post that? Upen Patel was all over the news for everything other than acting.
The talent display took a terrific backseat as his flamboyant nature provided enough masala for Bollywood news updates.
The actor however didn’t stop trying and yes he is back…hold your thoughts before you hear the entire thing.
He decided to showcase his skill in Tamil film industry… OMG!!!
Yes he might have had a rough patch in Bollywood industry but with the Tamil film ‘I’ he is hopeful of making headlines for his acting skills.
The movie ‘I’ is a Tamil film directed by Shankar starring Vikram and Amy Jackson. Upen Patel has pivotal supporting character in the movie. This is the first time the actor is exploring his skillset in the Tamil film industry.
He accepted that the language was an initial challenge but then he believes his acting is a totally different language. You need to understand emotions.
The actor as per reports holds very high regards for the Tamil film industry. He talks about the humble nature of actors and directors of the South and says it totally contrasts the scene in Bollywood.
Well yes, Bollywood definitely is about sensational news all around. So what if he looked good and liked partying?
Was the industry too fast to assume he wouldn’t be able to act?
The last Hindi film he was seen in was the movie ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’ starring Ranbir and Katrina in 2009.
Well there are more directors who are now roping in the actor.
There had been news about his probable appearance in a French movie directed by Yann Danh.
Definitely a director like Shankar must have seen the talent that Bollywood might have failed to see. The ever glamorous world of Bollywood is also tough and beyond the league but the way Upen Patel seems to be trying new avenues we wonder if the tables just turned.
