MUMBAI: Post his victory in Sony’s reality show Bigg Brother, actor Rahul Roy is now treading onto new pastures. Roy, who made his acting debut in Mahesh Bhatt’s Aashiqui opposite Anu Agarwal, is now venturing into the construction business.
“Construction business is looking lucrative these days. It is a safe investment. I am looking at erecting a mall and at present the economics are being worked out,” he says.
Roy says, “I come from a business family. Before Bigg Boss happened I had been grabbing offers for small films. My last Hindi release was Meri Aashiqui playing a similar role to that of Amitabh Bachchan in Nishabd. There is another one Aashiqon Ko Jalana Buri Baat Hai, which too has a similar concept and is due for release. Now I have enough patience and would like to do good roles, instead of doing a dozen small ones.”
Filmmakers like Bharat Shah, Praveen Shah, Sangeeta Ahire and Vashu Bhagnani have also taken to construction and many of their projects are currently underway.
