Post Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, PAVAN MALHOTRA next ‘THE BASTARD CHILD
Pavan Malhotra, who received tremendous critical acclaim as a
endearing Sikh coach Gurudev Singh in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, will play
a very controversial character in
THE BASTARD CHILD. He plays as the ‘Butcher of Bengal’ responsible
for the program.
(The BASTARD CHILD – is seemingly a controversial film based on the rape of 2 00,000 Bangladeshi Bengali women by Pakistani Army –during Bangladesh ‘Liberation’ where rape was used a weapon of War, and also similar to Nazi LEBENSBORN program, as reportedly 30,000 War babies born in Bangladesh)
When asked about the huge critical and box office success of BMB, Says Pavan ” “I am very pleased that BHAAG MILKA BHAAG has received such a stupendous success both with the critics and masses alike. It will go down in history as one of the biggest bio pic. Truly it has inspired
the masses. Farhan Akhthar performance was pitch perfect and he really
worked hard to get his athletic physique and body language right. And
what do I say of Rakesh Omprakash Mehra, It was pleasure working with
him in Delhi 6 and now BMB. He will be remembered as an iconic film
He adds about his forthcoming film “My character in The Bastard Child is
responsible for the atrocities in Bangladesh, where rape is used as a
weapon of war to terrorize the people. My character is menacing.
Though the title is a working title, it may change, considering the
controversial nature of the subject.”
Pavan is very judicious on the roles he play and considers that every
time he takes up a role, he is accepting a new challenge, and his
thinking process begins on how to sketch out a character and the
personality in the script, and he believes, it is that what acting
Pawan Malhotra body of work truly speaks for itself, be it Salim
