Ram Gopal Verma’s next ambitious film project D COMPANY launches Ashwat Kanth as Bollywood’s new Dawood Ibrahim
RGV has created a kind of casting coup by roping in for the first time ever in the film industry REAL brothers to play REEL brothers on their debut. The thought itself creates a rippling excitement to see the REEL chemistry between REAL Brothers, in debut & rarity on the Indian silver Screen .
Actor Ashwat Kanth has managed to stay ahead of times with trends and times by working hard to constantly better his acting credentials. He is known to leave his fans speechless with one fabulous performance after another.
However, this film will become the turning point & corner stone in Rudr’s promisingly exciting career graph in the Hindi Films & Entertainment business. He describes his debut in RGV’s impassioned film project as the best & perfect platform to showcase his talent, hardwork & commitment as an actor & a serious player in the acting business.
Leaving an undying impact, the teaser of the film "D Company" has taken the country by storm. With menacing eyes, eccentric mannerisms and powerful acting, Ashwat and Rudr Kanth have upped their own ante as Dawood and Shabir Ibrahim apart from the REEL VS REAL Brothers dramatic magnetism.
While Ashwat plays the captivating role of Dawood Ibrahim, his brother Rudr will play the equally gravitating role of Shabir Ibrahim Kaskar.
Ashwat bagged the role by submitting his audition tape with his method acting. The chalking task of identifying an equally interesting & impressive casting for the role of his on-screen brother took a thrilling turn when Ashwat suggested his brother Rudr’s name for the audition. What followed was multiple rounds of auditions & look & performance tests for his brother with RGV’s & his experienced team & finally everyone came to a consensus that Ashwat and Rudr together on-screen to play REEL brothers can create a hell of a chemistry. The rest is history.
“Multiple attempts in the past of similar subjects have been done in bits & pieces but *RGV’s D Company film* touches upon the actual life of Don Dawood Ibrahim & his empire in the minutest detail possible, right from its remotest origin, where did it all actually start from, how he formed the infamous D Company & it’s entire start to finish & ongoing journey. *Says Ashwat*, “Apart from the story line, what is most breathtaking & intriguing is that my real brother and I are playing reel brothers on screen. Now while that is rare, the most thrilling part during the entire making of D Company was translating our real life chemistry on the screen but believe you me, with a fantastic mentor like RGV himself at the helm of affairs, it wasn’t so difficult”.
“The film not only brings fascinating details about the formation of D Company but also never-seen-before brothers Dawood and Shabir’s bond, their spell binding journey & it is rare to see two real life brothers play the role of two real Don brothers on screen against an enthralling underworld backdrop. This casting created by Rudr & Ashwat brings a riveting feeling of reality in almost every scene & dialogue in the film.
Says the legendary film maker Ram Gopal Varma, “ I have myself been involved in making various projects on the underworld subject, but the extent of detailing & research that has gone in creating D Company is unparalleled. One of the biggest challenge was to identify the most ideal casting to play the lead pair for Don Dawood Ibrahim & his brother Shabbir Ibrahim Kaskar. During the process of identifying & short listing the lead pair casting, I came across the Method Acting audition tapes of
Ashwat & genuinely, I loved & literally freaked out on the kind of talent this young actor possesses. Had heard about him earlier too through some sources but came across his work & actual audition with this project only & today, I can say with pride that I & my team have created a storm with the casting decision of pairing Ashwat and his real brother Rudr to play the on screen REEL brothers Dawood & Shabir Ibrahim Kaskar. Audiences will love the power driven high voltaic emotions in every scene of this stimulating on screen drama.
