Popular YouTuber Carry Minati whose real name is Ajey Nagar is all set to try his hand at another medium. According to a leading daily, Minati will play a special role in Ajay Devgn-Amitabh Bachchan starrer MayDay.
Confirming about his film role, Minati said, “My brother/business head Deepak Char got a call from Kumar Mangat Pathak (Co-Producer at Devgn’s production company) and I have been meaning to align forces with them since a while now. What made it really interesting for me was when I heard I am supposed to play my own character (CarryMinati) & the way it’s going to be shown on screen. I am excited to see how this will unfold.”
Whether he had any plans of making his Bollywood debut, Minati said, “It has never been one of my interests. The main purpose of those skits was to entertain people. Currently, I don’t see myself going in that direction but yes I like to experience everything. I agreed to be a part of this film because I had to essay my own character (CarryMinati) and that comes very easily to me. I eat, breathe, sleep and live my character every single day. But I’m hoping I get to learn a thing or two about acting from Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn. They are personalities I look up to and fondly admire.”
However, he does not want to call MayDay his full-fledged Bollywood debut and told the daily, “It’s more like an extension of what I do. I dedicate 10 hours in a day for content creation and I’d like to consider that as my passion and calling, acting and music for me is a medium where I can showcase my art to a more varied audience. For me personally, my authentic acting innings will happen when I get to the opportunity to dedicate myself wholeheartedly to the art unflinchingly, everything else I do right now I consider as a special appearance.” MInatii was recently interviewed by Kareena Kapoor Khan on her radio chat show What Women Want 3.
