New Delhi: Director Rajkumar Santoshi returns to the silver screen after almost a year with the Ajay Devgan-starrer Halla Bol that premiered in the capital on Tuesday. Though the other actor of the film, Vidya Balan was conspicuous by her absence, Devgan was at his affable best, fielding questions about playing a role of a superstar in the film. “It was hard playing someone flamboyant, etc. I tried to be what Rajkumar Santoshi wanted me to be,” says Devgan. Halla Bol revolves around a Ashfaque, an actor, played by Devgan who starts out small with Pankaj Kapoor's street theatre troupe and goes on to become a superstar. He however, starts losing his values and principles along the way, alienating himself from his loved ones. Kapoor also plays a rather interesting character, that of a reformed terrorist. “I play a baddie who's had a change of heart,” says Kapoor. And if you were wondering about a Tuesday being chosen for a film premiere, it was simply a matter of convenience. “There is no special reason for the film being premiered on Tuesday,” says Santoshi. Halla Bol hits cinemas nationwide on January 11.
