Though there is still uncertainty around Gul Panag’s real life love story, on reel life she is having a whale of time with as many as three men vying for her attention. While in real life this may be a little hazardous, on screen Gul is enjoying every bit of shooting for A RECTANGULAR LOVE STORY.
Smiles Gul, “A RECTANGULAR LOVE STORY is a story about three boys and a girl. The film’s shooting started this month and we have been making good progress.
A PNC production, the film which stars Ranvir Shorey and Purab Kohli in the lead, is directed by Rajat Kapur. Incidentally this is for the first time ever that Rajat Kapoor and Gul Panag are working together.
“It’s fun to be part of A RECTANGULAR LOVE STORY”, exclaims Gul, “Rajat is such a different kind of director to work with. The film is a nice breezy romantic comedy and a unique experience for me.”
A RECTANGULAR LOVE STORY is the first ever comedy for Gul who has otherwise been slotted as a serious actor, courtesy films like DHOOP and DOR. Though she did have a glamorous persona in JURM and also a part of some light hearted scenes in MANORAMA – SIX FEET UNDER, these performances didn’t quite get noticed due to both films failing at the box office. However, MANORAMA – SIX FEET UNDER has done reasonably well on the DVD circuits.
“That’s life and as I have always maintained that since I don’t come with any expectations, I have no regrets either”, says Gul who just saw another box office failure in the form of SUMMER 2007, “I am moving on and looking forward to some good releases in the pipeline in coming months.”
Gul’s upcoming films are HELLO, ANUBHAV, STRAIGHT and HELLO DARLING.
