It is not often that an artiste has two films releasing on the same day, especially if they are playing the lead in both films. Pratik Gandhi’s Gujarati film Ventilator, the official remake of the 2016 Marathi movie of the same name, and Mitron, his first Hindi film, will hit the screens on 14 September.
However, since both films are in different languages, Gandhi thinks it will hardly be a clash. “It’s not exactly a clash as one is in Gujarati and another is in Hindi. This is a big milestone for me that two of my films of different languages are releasing on the same day,” he told Cinestaan.com during an interview.
Speaking about his character in Mitron, he added, “I am playing Jackky Bhagnani’s close friend. But it’s a very critical and crucial character.”
He credits his work in Gujarati films Bey Yaar (2014) and Wrong Side Raju (2016) for getting his first role in Hindi. “People from the mainstream might have seen those films. And Mitron’s story takes place in Gujarat. They wanted some actor who could bring in Gujarati flavour. That’s why I was approached. I then had a meeting with director Nitin Kakkar,” Gandhi said.
The actor also stated that language isn’t a barrier for him. “I wish to act in a lot of languages. I have already done my play Mohan No Masalo in Hindi and English. I wish to do Marathi and south Indian language films as well,” he added.
In Ventilator, he plays the young man whose father is admitted in the ICU. This role was essayed by Jitendra Joshi played in the original.
