The IQBAL of Nagesh Kukunoor's film of the same name has come of age. With some excellent performances in films like Dor, Apna Sapna Money Money and the recent success, Dil Dosti Etc., Shreyas has proved that IQBAL was not a flash in the pan.
The only thing lacking in Shreyas's arsenal was a real big project and it now appears that it is finally here in the form of Om Shanti Om. In his upcoming 'Diwali' extravaganza, Shreyas plays Shahrukh's best buddy and confidante, 'Pappu Master'. His crackling chemistry with King Khan has to be seen to be believed.
In one of the howlarious scenes (set in the 70's) from the upcoming movie, SRK (playing a junior artist, aspiring to become a superstar), tells him that his mother (Kirron Kher) says that he is slated to become a big star. Pat comes the repartee from Shreyas, 'Keshto ki maa ne bhi usse yahi kaha hoga', in an obvious reference to Keshto Mukherjee, the perpetually drunk (on screen), yet beloved Bollywood comedian of the 70's and 80's!
