Gul Panag has been having a busy 2008. After her critically acclaimed performance in SUMMER 2007, she has recently tasted box office success with HELLO. Though both the films were in the making for a little while, Gul was always confident that the two films carried a distinct (and an original) theme and hence would manage to strike a chord with the audience.
“What pretty much also worked for me was that each of the two films was quite different from each other. Also my character in one film is completely in contrast with the other”, reveals Gul who has always managed to get the attention of critics in each of her films, whether it is her debut film DHOOP, DOR or last year’s MANORAMA – SIX FEET UNDER.
Laughs Gul, “This is why Atul Agnihotri (director of HELLO) was quite comfortable when I used to give a shot for the film. He used to tell me that he completely trusted me and hence didn’t have to bother much about giving instructions or being extra cautious about how I was performing. He used to tell me that he was sure I would manage to impress people with my act yet again.”
Coming to her films, while in HELLO, Gul Panag plays a call center employee, in SUMMER 2007 she plays the role of a rich girl who hates wealth. Both the films are looking at a June/July release.
