Amol Gupte, the film-maker, actor and screenwriter who was seen as a villain in Kaminey, will now be seen in a villanous role again in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film Singham 2. The film stars Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor in lead roles.
“Amole will be as ferocious as Prakash Raj was in the first installment. He’s been asked by Rohit to bulk up for the role and his wife, editor Deepa Bhatia, is rustling up carb-heavy meals for him as he needs to put on 15 kilos,” said a source.
Apparently, Gupte declined Rohit’s offer initially as he thought it was a joke but now, he is quite excited by the prospect of acting in the film.
“My son (Partho) and I are big fans of Rohit’s films and now I’m in one of them. We start shooting mid-March. I have already put on 8 kilos, also thanks to my wife’s Sindhi food,” says Gupte.
