For the first time in their careers, Vijay Raaz and Deepak Dobriyal will be seen together in Kaalakaandi, a dark comedy written and directed by Akshat Varma.
The two actors have successfully made their individual mark in their cinematic journey and are considered amongst the most dynamic actors’ in the industry. One of the three stories in Kaalakaandi revolves around Deepak and Vijay’s characters and their desire to get rich. Their story is quite compelling and effortlessly brings to life the underbelly of Mumbai, which they represent in the film.
Director Akshat Verma shared:
“In Kaalakaandi there are three different stories with each having a different rhythm to it. For Deepak and Vijay with their theatre background, they come in ready to go, with every take they gave being their best one.Their performance is like firing cylinders, the more you work with them the spontaneous they get.”
According to Saif Ali Khan, Deepak and Vijay are like Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino of Bollywood. The actor shared:
“It is one of the best movies I’ve been in. Deepak Dobriyal and Vijay Raaz are like Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino. I have never seen better acting in any film I’ve been in. I just want to somehow thank them for the experience.”
