PINK is youth-centric film: Angad Bedi


Despite the upcoming Shoojit Sircar production “Pink” revolving around the lives of three women, actor Angad Bedi insists the film has a lot for the men to watch and learn from it. In “Pink”, Taapsee Pannu along with Kirti Kulhari and debutant Andrea Tariang play three young women in Delhi who face assault charges after being molested by a group of men.

Angad, who is suspected to be someone harassing or causing trouble to the three girls, feels the film should be screened at schools and colleges. “It is not a women-centric film. It is a youth-centric film. In fact, it is more for the men. It is something which every man, every youngster, every 16-year and above child should watch,” Angad said, reports PTI. “It should be shown in classes in schools, colleges. It is not preachy. It has a strong subject while being a commercial film,” he added.

The 33-year-old actor got on board after a chance meeting with the “Piku” filmmaker at an awards function, post which he got a call for a meeting and was instantly selected for the role. Angad says it is unfair to call his character in the film “negative” because in most of Shoojit’s films, there is no hero or villain.

“If you look at his films, they never have a hero or a villain. There are just characters. There is nobody who is good or bad. They are very realistically written. Even in this, be it the girls’ role, Bachchan sir or me, they are all very real,” he said. “Pink” marks Angad’s third Bollywood film, after “Ungli” and “Faltu”.
