Nishikant plays the role of Kevin Pereira – a Goan gang lord who is bald, mean and the one to watch out for. Though the role of Kevin Pereira was supposed to be done by another actor, due to some last minute issues Nishikant was persuaded to take on the role by his associates. As director of the film as well, Nishikant knows the script in an out he gave it a shot and is quite excited with the way it has shaped up. Speaking about the role, Nishikant said,

“I enjoy acting and am confident in front of the camera but doing it in your own film can be scary. Also, it’s not easy to be a director as well as act at the same time. I might not do it ever again.”

The filmmaker conceptualized his final look in 48 hours and reveals that he had fun dressing up for the role.

“I got to wear fancy suits which I usually don’t in real life so it was a lot of fun,” he chuckles. “Since I had written the script, I knew the character pretty well. Kevin mouths certain Goan words. I have spent close to three years in Goa so it wasn’t very difficult for me to pull off either,”

John Abraham was apparently shocked at first to find out that his director was also the villain in the film! Let’s see if Nishikant can pull of both roles successfully.

Rocky Handsome played by John Abraham is the journey of an unforgiving man who embarks on a lethal rampage when the only person he cares about is kidnapped and taken away from him. Set in Goa, Mumbai, Pune and Seychelles, the film is an adrenaline pumping action film embellished with a strong emotional story of the relationship between a father who never had a daughter and a seven year old daughter who never had a father. Rocky Handsome shall have the backbone of a very emotional and romantic love story in the protagonist’s past.
