According to sources, Shreyas Talpade has been chosen by Nagesh Kukunoor, who has plans to make a biopic on legendary singer-actor-director Kishore Kumar, to do the lead role. The young actor says it would be an "honour" to step into the singer`s shoes for the movie.
"Nagesh had asked me a year-and-a-half back about doing Kishore-da`s part and I had immediately said yes, but nothing is official as of now... personally speaking I`m really looking forward to it," Shreyas told.
"I haven`t been able to speak with Nagesh about it yet, but I`d love to portray Kishore-da without any doubt... I`m a big fan of his and as an actor it`ll be a huge honour for me as well as a challenge to enact him in a film," he added.
Kukunoor, who had launched the actor in Bollywood with his critically-acclaimed 2005 movie "Iqbal", wants to cast him in the biopic for two reasons - first, a Kishore Kumar biopic cannot be attempted with a star who has a strong image and, secondly, Shreyas is a huge Kishore Kumar fan himself.
Asked if he would be singing the hit maker`s numbers if roped in, Shreyas said: "You wouldn`t like to mess around with Kishore-da`s voice. I keep humming his songs, but you can`t really call me a singer. His voice has been god`s gift and I`ll try (to sing in his voice), but if I cannot then we`ll pick a singer who can do justice to his songs.
"But as far as the performance part is concerned, it is totally under my control and I`ll make sure that I pull that perfectly... I won’t leave any room for any finger to find anything missing," he added.
