Udaan opened the door of oppurtunities

Mumbai: Popular TV star Ram Kapoor, who earned critical acclaim playing young Rajat Barmecha`s sympathetic uncle in Vikramaditya Motwane`s `Udaan` says the movie has landed him prestigious projects in Bollywood.

"Thanks to Udaan, I got four projects–Sooraj Barajtya`s `Love U Mr Kalakaar`, Saif Ali Khan`s `Agent Vinod`, Karan Johar`s `Short Term Shaadi` and Mahesh Godiyal`s `Maaee` with Asha Bhosale," Ram said.

Speaking about his roles in the movies, he said it was a welcome change from the similar kind of roles offered to him on television in the last few years. According to him, more susccessful an actor becomes on television, there is lesser chance of experimentation. "Channels, producers and your fans want to see you the way they like," he said.

"Television has made me what I am today. I cannot regret.

But now, I have chosen film projects where I can show different sides of me. Apart from `Udaan`, I did `Kartik Calling Kartik` with Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone," the actor said.

Ram said in Agent Vinod, he plays a Russian mafia don.

"The film is in three chapters. I come in the first Russian part and after killing me, Agent Vinod goes to Morrocco and then Paris. I will appear in a outrageous look in the film and I am looking forward to the audience reaction," he added.

In `Short Term Shaadi`, Ram said he will try his comic timings with Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah, who play Imran Khan`s parents. "I play a real estate tycoon based in Las Vegas. I play Boman`s business associate," he added.
