Nishikant Kamat will be stepping into the antagonist’s role for his forthcoming ‘Rocky Handsome’ which he is also directing.
The character’s name is Kevin Pereira and he is a drug dealer. Kamat told Filmfare, “I shave off my head after a film’s release, which I did after finishing my last directorial, Lai Bhaari. Fortunately, Kevin Pereira was required to be bald so it worked out in this case”.
Kamat has faced the camera before but he feels it a different experience doing so in a film he is also directing, “Since I had written the script, I knew the character pretty well. I have spent close to three years in Goa so it wasn’t very difficult for me to pull off either”.
The film is a John Abraham production and he is also male lead. Shruti Haasan is the leading lady.
