Actor Rohan Mehra Spoke About His Latest Project 420 IPC And Being The Son Of Vinod Mehra
Rohan Mehra, the son of Vinod Mehra, has made his digital debut with ZEE5’s 420 IPC. The movie is directed by Manish Gupta and stars Gul Panag, Vinay Pathak, and Ranvir Shorey in pivotal roles. The film shows legal drama and gives one knowledge of the courtroom.
Rohan plays the role of a lawyer, Birbal Chaudhary. Birbal Chaudhary fights the case for his client, played by Vinay Pathak. In describing his character, Rohan said, “I think I can describe him as a young maverick. He is not only a lawyer who will go by the books, as he has a detective-like approach while investigating the case. He will either go to the scene of the crime or use unconventional methods. He also seems very inspired by international lawyers, or people like Sherlock, to solve his cases. “
Although theatres have reopened, the film was set to get a digital release. The actor said that the decision seemed to be logical in the current circumstances. Adding to his statement, he said, “For most filmmakers, and even actors, what’s most important is that more and more people can watch and consume the film. Coming to theatres, apart from scripts and actors, there are also a lot of other factors that affect the footfall. The film may not be bad, but people may just miss it. However, when it’s on a platform like ZEE5, with such a wide reach and huge subscribers, it’s very encouraging. Just to know that it gives the film an opportunity to be watched by so many people is just amazing. “
The actor further talked about his late father, Vinod Mehra. The young actor said that he’s blessed to be the son of such a commendable actor, although he feels fortunate that people don’t refer to him just as “his son”. Rohan later talked about creating his own identity in the industry. He said, “Honestly, I am really proud to be my father’s son. From what I have heard from others, he really was a great man. He really worked hard and probably did not get the credit he deserved. He was an incredibly hard-working man, and I have heard so much about him. Also, in this industry, I feel thankful that I never got to bear the burden of the tag. There was no one pointing fingers at me saying, “You are Vinod Mehra’s son.” I think I did manage to create my own mark, but the audience and filmmakers will be able to talk better about this. However, I also hope that I never stray away too far from his shadow, as I am really proud of it. “
