Gulshan Devaiah who received rave reviews for his role as Mandar Ponkshe in Hunterrr will be seen sharing screen space with best friend, Kalki Koechlin in Pooja Bhatt’s Love Affair. The film will be directed by Soni Razdan and is based on the infamous KM Nanavati case of 1959. The story is about a naval commander, Kawas Manekshaw Nanavati, who was tried for murdering his British wife’s lover. Known for being perfectionists, both the talented actors have already started preparing for their roles in the film.
Since the movie revolves around the elite society of Mumbai in the 1950s, both the actors are doing a lot of research to prepare for their roles. A source close to Gulshan says,
“They have been watching a lot of movies from that era. They have also been reading books to understand the kind of language people used on a day-to-day basis. They are also visiting different designers to learn about the style that was followed back in the day.”
Apparently, the good rapport between the actors is helping them prepare for the film. When contacted Gulshan confirmed the news, and said,
“Kalki and I are watching a lot of old American and European films from the ’40s and the ’50s. We are trying to understand the culture and fashion of that time. We have read our scenes together, and have discussed how we can incorporate some of those elements in our film. We share a good working relationship, which helps us enjoy the rehearsals.”
Apart from Love Affair, Gulshan will also be seen in Pooja Bhatt’s Cabret and Vivek Agnihotri’s Junooniyat.
