'Love, Sex Aur Dhoka' not just about sex: Raj Kumar
"The film is not only about sex. It's about all the three emotions - love, sex and dhoka (betrayal). Lovemaking scenes are an integral part of the film but there is lot more apart from it," 25-year-old Raj Kumar, who plays an executive of a CCTV camera company in the movie, told us.
Though Raj Kumar didn't reveal whether he is a part of the much-hyped lovemaking scenes or not, he feels audience will accept the movie when it hits screens Friday.
"We have very educated audience these days and they want to watch something different, basically some meaningful cinema. That's what our film offers and rest we will get to know after the release," he said.
The actor, who is a graduate from the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune, got a chance to be a part of 'Love, Sex Aur Dhoka' after clearing three rounds of audition. At that time his only drive was to be in Banerjee's film.
"I didn't exactly know the content of the film. For me, main thing was that this is Dibakar's film and whatever he makes, has to be meaningful. I have full faith in him. He is one of my favourite directors and I always wanted to work with him," said Raj Kumar.
Apart from the workshops, he did research for his character.
"My character's name is Adarsh Malhotra, who installs CCTV cameras in a departmental store and then whatever happens in the store can be seen with those cameras. I gathered information about different CCTV cameras and then worked on the nuances of the character like how he will walk, talk, etc.," he said.
But why not a conventional debut with a typical Bollywood potboiler?
"I am very fortunate that I got the chance to work with Dibakar. This is the time when Indian cinema is going through a positive change and I loved the script, especially my character, because it is very performance oriented."
Apart from 'Love, Sex Aur Dhoka', Raj Kumar will also be seen in a film titled 'Chittagong', being produced by Shonali Bose who made critically acclaimed movie 'Amu'.
