Gagan Arora’s Next Horror Comedy – The New Indian Express
It has been a fortuitous few weeks for Gagan Arora. The young actor, who was praised for his performance in Tabbar, bagged his neighbor. Gagan will be seen in an upcoming horror comedy movie directed by Tabbar creator and co-writer Harman Wadala. The film also introduces Aparshakti Khurana, with whom Gagan had worked as an assistant director on Stree (2018).
“Harman is venturing in the direction with an incredible storyline on the lines of a horror / thriller comedy,” Gagan shares as he wraps up the festivities at home. “It’s about three boys and their travels. Along the way, they form three couples. It will go to the ground in mid-December. We are looking for a theatrical release next year. It’s a Jio Studios film.
Gagan has appeared on web shows like College Romance and Hostel Girls. In Tabbar, he plays Happy, a middle-class Punjabi boy who is helped by his family to cover up a crime. The performance was critically acclaimed and opened new doors for newcomers.
“There’s an implication in this industry that if you didn’t do a serious project, you didn’t do it as an actor,” observes Gagan. Previously, he had been approached by casting directors for miniature roles: “Delhi boy”, “chocolate boy”, “boy next door”.
Tabbar seems to have changed all that. “It’s getting more experimental now,” he says, “like someone contacted me recently to host a documentary series”. “It shows how seriously people start to take you after you’ve played a good part in a good show,” he adds.
