Versatile actor Tahir Raj Bhasin on Tuesday dropped his look from his next, ‘Looop Lapeta’, his first film as the romantic lead.
Tahir plays the role of Satya in the heist film and has been paired opposite Taapsee Pannu. Decoding his pretty out there character, Tahir says, “Satya is an irreverent guy. I’m a risk-chasing charmer in the film and I’ve had an incredible time playing him. He’s pretty out there in his optimism and lust for life. I’d describe him as all silver lining and no cloud.”
“He’s a hustler who believes with all his soul that the universe conspires in his favour. The look has him in a loose brown shirt, he dons these retro sunglasses and has a nose piercing. All of these style elements have been created in sync with his personality of being the laid back rebel,” he said.
Tahir’s look also reveals a textile mill setting for the film. Quizzed him about this and he says, “The image of Satya’s look is a still from a scene that was shot at an abandoned textile mill for ‘Looop Lapeta’. For Aakash Bhatia, the director, the locations are an inherent character in the film. They make a visual statement about the vibe of the story and the world.”
“Yes, this particular location plays a central role in the plot but to know more about how and why Satya is there stay tuned for the release date. All I can say at this point is that it’ll be a mad ride,” he said.
Tahir is relishing playing the quintessential Bollywood hero for the first time in ‘Looop Lapeta’. He says, “Playing the quintessential Bollywood hero has been super exciting. When you grow up on your dose of Bollywood, it seems like very familiar territory. Satya is the laid-back charmer that your parents warned you about. Aakash Bhatia and the producers Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg have poured their heart in to creatively balance the style and wit the hero brings to the script.”
“Having the spectacular Taapsee to play opposite has only made exploring an onscreen romantic chemistry an incredibly fun and rewarding experience,” he added.
Tahir took to his Instagram handle and shared his first look. In the picture, Tahir is seen donning a red tee, green bandana and shades. He captioned it as, “If there was a quicker way of making 2-minute noodles, Satya would find a way! I’ve had an incredible time playing him and am super kicked about this first look. Meet Satya! The irreverent, lovable “jholer” in the year’s craziest ride, “Looop Lapeta”, co-starring @taapsee.”
