It was certainly shocking when we got the news of director and producer Raj Kaushal passing away due to a cardiac arrest on Wednesday. We saw many celebrities paying their tribute to the late director, who was Mandira Bedi’s husband.
In a conversation with a leading daily actor Ronit Roy expressed his grief and shared that the late director contacted Ronit in May and was in talks with him for a web-series. Ronit said, “He told me that he wanted me to play a very important role in the series and he would need me for a brief period though in the first part. Maybe he had a plan of inducting me in the second part largely.”
Then? “Then, Raj also told me that he wanted me to play the mastermind in the show whose face is unmasked at the end of the first part.”
Did Ronit shoot for it? “No, my shoot did not materialise. The makers, I think, were going back and forth on the modalities with Raj. And those days, we were also hit by the Tauktae cyclone toh woh reh gaya (it couldn’t happen),” Ronit explained.
According to reports Raj Kaushal’s web-series was a thriller titled Akkad Bakkad.
