Danny Denzongpa has regret, said – I did not get the role as I wanted
He told, ‘The filmmakers made films on subjects in which I was not fit. Somehow I got a chance to act in Gulzar Saheb’s film Mere Apne, which is one of the many films in which I was cast like an ordinary Indian without any back story. After this, BR Chopra’s 1973 film ‘Dhud’ made me a star. After this, filmmakers started making and making films. I did not fit into these films because my face did not meet anyone’s father or son. So I did not accept many of them.
Danny told that NN Sippy then gave him a role in 1976 in ‘Fakira’, in which he was to play the role of Shashi Kapoor’s brother and it was a Golden Jubilee hit. After doing this film, he realized that once the public accepts you, he will accept you in any role. From then on, he started playing the role of everyone’s brother and father.
However, Danny believes that he did not get the title he claimed as an actor. He says that he did not get the roles he wanted. I did the film ‘Frozen’ in the year 2007, which had a father-son story and a good subject, but it was not commercially good. I am still looking forward to the itresting role.
