New Delhi, Nov 9 (IANS) Rahul Bhatt, who is itching to start his Bollywood innings, has shot down rumours of being part of his sister Pooja Bhatt’s ‘Jism 2’ saying he isn’t ‘sexy enough’ for the movie.
‘There is nothing official about the rumours that I am going to be in ‘Jism 2′. The role is very sexual, and I am not as sexy as John Abraham. I cannot play roles like that,’ Rahul, who was evicted from reality show ‘Bigg Boss 4’ last week, told IANS on phone from Mumbai.
He also says it’s not necessary that he will be launched by his father’s banner Vishesh Films.
‘The Bhatts are not in the business to launch their sons, brothers and nephews… It’s not like my father is going to make my showreel. I have my own showreel with ‘Bigg Boss’ now… where filmmakers can see how I look from each angle,’ said Rahul.
The 28-year-old wants to do distinct and specific roles.
‘Movies are on the cards. But I am going to be very choosy about my roles. Personally, I would love to be part of a movie with a patriotic theme. I would like to play a strong and silent guy rather than something to do with romance. I consider myself a hybrid between Salman Khan and Sunny Deol,’ he said.
Rahul, a fitness trainer, first came into the limelight for his acquaintance with Pakistani-American terror convict David Coleman Headley, who’s charged with scouting targets for the 26/11 Mumbai mayhem. Despite being Mahesh Bhatt’s son, Rahul always maintained a low profile. However, his brush with showbiz came in the form of ‘Bigg Boss 4’.
He made good friends with WWE wrestler The Great Khali inside the ‘Bigg Boss’ house, and plans to collaborate with him to promote wrestling in India.
‘I have always followed Khali’s career closely and I am impressed to see how he came from a small town in Himachal Pradesh and went on to become The Great Khali… he is such a nice human being. He told me he wants to launch wrestling schools in India and, god willing, I will help him set it up,’ said Rahul.
