Priyanshu dons role of comical don

- Mumbai, April 2 (IANS) Nandita Singha's "Main Rony Aur Jony" will see actor Priyanshu Chatterjee in a new role - that of a don who breaks into comic capers, reports Bollywood Trade.
The low-profile Priyanshu, who has had a few inconsequential releases after the moderately successful "Tum Bin", is said to have worked hard on his role in the film.
According to Nandita, he even got his hair coloured at her insistence to get the stylised Mumbai don look in the film. What excited her though was the way he got into the skin of the character by enacting the mannerisms in his day-to-day life.
"Some of his friends did not even recognise him when he landed up at their common meeting place in the don's get-up. It was incredible," Nandita said.
This is also Priyanshu's first attempt at comedy. Sandali Sinha, who was also his co-star in "Tum Bin", plays his love interest in the film.
