If our sources are to be believed, then Yash is gambling big time! He has decided to take the risk of portraying a negative character - a gamble which, for an actor of his stature, could well be transformative. The gifted hero, who always stood for good on screen, seems to have decided to don a sinful shade in his upcoming and much awaited film, Masterpiece directed by Manju Mandavya. While secrecy is being maintained by the Masterpiece camp, the posters reveal Yash as Bhagat Singh, while another avatar of an angry man is also shown, revealing tints of grey.
Since the makers are unwilling to divulge any details, curiosity is rife among fans whether Yash has a double role in the film where he plays the hero and the villain. If confirmed, then it will the first time that Yash plays a bad guy.
When being bad pays
In Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan is the perfect example of a hero who made it big by being bad.
He tapped into the dark side of characters and succeeded in winning the hearts of the audience with films like Baazigar and Darr.
Being bad has paid in Sandalwood too. Upendra and Sudeep threw caution to the winds and tried playing negative characters in other languages and got a huge amount of success.
Dr Rajkumar’s films like Daari Thapida Maga raked in the moolah when he played the hero and the villain. Even Ambareesh and Vishuvardhan played anti-heroes in the beginning of their careers.
The film produced by Vijay Kiragandur also sees Shanvi Srivastava, Suhasini, Chikkanna among others.
