Tahir Raj Bhasin
The year 2022 is a year of romances for the acclaimed actor Tahir Raj Bhasin. After making a debut with an anti-hero role in Mardaani, he will now be seen in romantic roles in his three back to back releases.
The actor is now loving the romance genre and playing the quintessential hero in projects like Ranjish Hi Sahi. He is paired opposite Amala Paul and Amrita Puri in the love triangle drama series. In the film Looop Lapeta, he will be seen romancing Taapsee Pannu and in Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein, he is opposite Sweta Tripathi.
Tahir issued a statement saying that he is excited about the string of romantic releases in 2022. "The feature film Looop Lapeta and two OTT series Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein and Ranjish Hi Sahi will release early next year. Coincidentally, all three of these have me in the romantic lead. It’s a hat-trick of romance for me this year and I can’t wait for this new chapter of my journey.”
Talking about these projects, he said Looop Lapeta is an edgy heist romance where he plays Satya, a whimsical jholler, who is madly in love with Savi (Taapsee Pannu). "Satya believes in taking a punt on shortcuts to get where he wants to in life. His laid back vibe and penchant for risk is what takes Satya and Savi on a crazy roller coaster ride in Looop Lapeta,“ he added.
Tahir will be seen playing a small town boy Vikrant in the series Yeh Kaali Kaali Ankhein. A thriller with dark humour, Vikrant's life goes topsy turvy when a powerful politician's daughter gets obsessed with him and decides to shatter his life.
Unlike the other two, Ranjish Hi Sahi is a period romance created by Mahesh Bhatt. Set in the 70’s, the series explores a passionate love triangle between Shankar, his wife (Amrita Puri) and a Bollywood starlet (Amala Paul). Tahir further adds, “Playing a romantic lead and juggling these three very diverse romances have been a fulfilling challenge and I look forward to the audience immersing themselves in the fantastic worlds that they create.”
