Ronit Roy, who will be seen playing a villian in Subhash Kapoor’s Guddu Rangeela, says he has to work a lot on his body to look stronger and more powerful. “I’d be a far more powerful villain than the one I played in Boss. He is much larger and much more powerful.”
Roy plays the head of a Khap panchayat in the film, and says there is a lot he needs to do to perfect the Haryanvi character.
“I’ve tried to understand why he [the character] behaves the way he does. I like to create a history even for villainous characters,” Roy said.
“In Boss, I created a history for my character where, as a child, he burnt his parents alive because they deprived him of a particular toy.”
For Guddu Rangeela, Roy is working on his accent and a beefed-up physique.
Since his co-actor Amit Sadh has suffered a fracture and is resting at home, Roy has got two extra weeks to prepare.
The actor says he’s game for a villainous role only when it’s something out of the ordinary.
“In Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan, the father seemed like a drunken brute. But he had his own reason for behaving the way he did with his son. He wanted to make something out of his life. Sometimes people who appear overly aggressive are actually trying to do the right thing,” said Roy.
