Himesh Reshammiya has gone international, also as an actor. A * IS KILLED – that’s the name of the project Himesh is starring in – is produced by Arifilms and directed by Christophe Lenoir, based in France. Himesh was selected by the makers as they felt he suited the part of Sidharth Patel, who is supposed to be an Indian musician absolutely mesmerized by a superstar who is killed under mysterious circumstances. How the truth behind the superstar’s murder unfolds forms the crux of the story.
This thriller in English will also have music by Himesh, besides him acting in it. Himesh says he is very excited to work with Christophe. “Vivek Singhania had recommended my name to Christophe. When I heard the script and its concept, I was absolutely willing to be a part of it. It’s also fun working with a completely new set up of very talented actors from different parts of the world [I am the only Indian actor in the film]. As far as music goes, I have experimented a lot because experimentation is a must if one has to stand apart and my makers were absolutely ready for something very unconventional,” states Himesh.
