MUMBAI: The all-India distribution rights of Balaji’s Kya Super Kool Hai Hum has been sold for Rs 21.6 cr to a Nagpur based distributor, and if sources are to be believed, lead actor Tusshar Kapoor’s highly controversial scene in the mad-cap comedy acted as a catalyst.
Confirms Tusshar Kapoor “Yes, that cheeky shot created a huge buzz .The all-India rights have been bought by Heera Laxmi for Rs 21.60 crore. The sequence is a hilarious spoof on Dostana (2008), only we couldn’t get hold of yellow briefs like John Abraham’s so we had to make do with blue ones.”
Ask the actor if he was embarrassed while filming the shot and he is quick to reply “Everybody who needed to be there was present and I wasn’t the slightest bit embarrassed… I’m an actor playing a character who is out to seduce the woman he fancies. It’s not Tusshar but Adi you’ll be seeing on screen. And it’s not like I’m doing a Full Monty!”
While Tusshar followed a strict high protein diet with zero sugar, he also trained for 2 hours in the gym everyday and even cut out water 3 days before the shoot. And the actor is in no frame of mind to lose the body anytime soon – “I’ve never looked as lean and fit as I do in the Dostana sequence and even if I need to put on weight for my next film, I’d like to retain this level of fitness.”
‘Kya Super Kool Hai Hum’ directed by Sachin Yardi, starring Tusshar Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh, Neha Sharma and Sarah Jane Dias is scheduled to release 27th July, 2012.
