Mumbai, Feb 14: Jackky Bhagnani, who was seen in films like "F.A.L.T.U" and "Ajab Gazabb Love", says his role in "Rangrezz" is different from the earlier ones and that director Priyadarshan wasn't sure whether he can pull it off.
"The first 10 days were tough as it has nothing to do with something, which I have played or experienced before. But there was always a complaint that I am doing films closer to me, not venturing out. I hope that won't be the case anymore," he told IANS.
In the film, Jackky plays a boy from a chawl.
He says initially Priyadarshan was not very confident if he would fit into the role.
"When it was being conceptualised that was the biggest question mark. I am playing a guy from chawls. Priyadarshan sir didn't know if I would be able to pull it off," he said.
But the 28-year-old seems to be content with his performance.
"It was good... We are very happy. I am sure the audience will like it too," he said.
Produced by Vashu Bhagnani, "Rangrezz" also features Priya Anand, Rajpal Yadav and Amitosh Nagpal. It hit theatres March 21.
