Shreyas Talpade's unfulfilled painting dream
Mumbai, June 12 (IANS) Actor Shreyas Talpade reveals that late painter M.F. Hussain, who died last year in June, wanted to make a film about paintings and during that time he was keen to learn more canvas, colours and brush.
"There was a time, around five years back, when Hussain saab wanted to make a film around painting. That was the time when I wanted to start learning more about it (paintings). But unfortunately, that film wasn't made and my dream remained unfulfilled," he told reporters here Monday at a painting exhibition organised to support the Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA).
Reportedly, Shreyas was to play a young Hussain in the movie.
Talking about his association with CPAA, the 36-year-old said that he may not be a huge star but he'll be happy if his association can make a difference.
"Everyone wants to do, but I think it's only when an actor or a known face gets associated with something that people want to know about it. They tweet about it, write it on Facebook, there is just more awareness about it," he said.
"I wouldn't say that I am a big celebrity and because of me lakhs of people will come, but even if two-four extra people come, then I'll be happy," he added.
A host of Bollywood celebrities like Vivek Oberoi, Zarine Khan, Sudhir Mishra, Shankar-Ehsan-Loy are associated with the CPAA.
Shreyas was last seen in "Housefull 2" and is currently shooting for Shirish Kunder's "Joker."
