Suniel Shetty To Act In Silent Comedy Film

Suniel Shetty, Silent

Suneil Shetty will next feature in a silent film. Silverscreen had earlier reported that Shetty wanted to play more diverse roles, and characters his age. Now, DNA reports that the actor, who had taken a break from acting to take care of his father, will be seen in a silent film. 

“I am doing a very exciting silent film and it’s got a lot of humour. It’s an extremely funny, hilarious film, which will have 24-25 principal actors. It’s on a brilliant subject, but it’s an extremely difficult film to pull off,” Suniel said. “There’s Anant Mahadevan, who’s the creative director of the film. It’s a silent comedy, so there’s a very thin line. It’s not technically a pantomime. At least, I’m trying to do something different.”


Shetty has a cameo appearance in the Sidharth Malhotra starrer A Gentleman. Talking about his break, Suniel said, “I don’t know why I didn’t want to do anything. I was in a different space of mind till dad was alive. I wanted to work, but I don’t know what was stopping me. I got some amazing films in the last one-and-a-half years, but I just didn’t want to do them. I haven’t had a Friday release for three-and-a-half years before A Gentleman.”
