Mumbai: Essaying the character of a 70-year-old man, who falls in love with a 22-year-old woman, in his upcoming film taught a thing or two about the subject of romance to Raghubir Yadav.
The actor has realised that love has no bar and knows no age limit. Although Raghubir has played an old man before on the big screen most recently in Yeh Khula Aasmaan this particular role turned out to be an eye opener.
“I haven’t done this kind of role ever before. Besides, I haven’t played a character this aged either. It was a great learning experience for me. Love is the ultimate winner in this story,” says the actor who has also sung a thumri for the film.
Director Amjad Khan, however, hints at a serious issue addressed in the film. He says, “The plot might revolve around a beautiful woman who creates differences between a grandfather and his grandson but the romcom-drama primarily focuses on the sensitive nature of an age-old ritual. My sole aim is to bring the subject to light and making the general public aware of how stupid some practices could get.
