Aditya, who leads Rocket Gang, says director Bosco’s novel concept of a dance-based horror comedy intrigued him
Matching steps with Tiger Shroff is hardly a cakewalk, but Aditya Seal pulled it off in Student of the Year (SOTY, 2019). Now, it’s time for Seal to put on his dancing shoes again. The actor is fronting Bosco Leslie Martis’s dance horror comedy, Rocket Gang. Blending the three genres seemed promising to Seal, who instantly gave his nod to the project. He says, “With the film, we have delved into a new genre. Though the [premise] makes you think that it’s a dance film, it goes beyond that. There is a lot of emotion, and entertainment, too.”
The November 11 offering, also starring Nikita Dutta, sees a group of friends stranded at a haunted bungalow. Soon, they are possessed by the spirits of five children, whose wish of winning a dance competition remained unfulfilled in their lifetime. For Seal, the plot, coupled with the joy of fronting Martis’s maiden directorial venture, was enough reason to say yes to the movie. “I was in Chandigarh when I got a call regarding the film. In my head, I had accepted the offer because the idea of a dance film was intriguing to me. Bosco had seen SOTY2 and felt he would be able to mould me as a dancer.” The actor adds that he trained rigorously in various dance forms before facing the camera.
