Gulshan Grover to play M F Hussain
The legendary artist M F Hussain is said to be the inspiration for an upcoming film. It's not a biopic, but the film, directed by adman Shashank Shekhar, is about an artist who gives back to society through his art.
Gulshan Grover, we hear, will be playing the character. He will sport long hair coupled with the trademark stubble, and move around barefoot in the movie. To make his part look as authentic as possible, the actor is borrowing from his interactions with the celebrated artist.
Gulshan declined to share too many details saying, "I'm in an interesting phase of my career with filmmakers putting greater faith in me as an actor. When I was offered the role, inspired by the legendary artist and woven in a touching story, I loved it and took it up," he says.
