Taking a cue from actor Sonu Sood, Nuclear Bomb today announced that it is no longer interested in negative roles. This decision comes after years of playing the villain in several Bond movies like Goldfinger and Tomorrow Never Dies and playing a negative role in numerous successful movies like Planet of the Apes, Terminator, Broken Arrow, Red Dawn and the more recent, Xmen: First Class. Nuclear Bomb has also played a key role in several video games like Call of Duty, Rise of Nations, Splinter Cell and Defcon. Earlier this week Nuclear Bomb refused to act in Madhur Bhandarkar’s next movie ‘Bomb’ citing date problems.This refusal is being considered as a confirmation of Nuclear Bomb’s stand against its typecasting.
‘I am fed up of playing the same negative roles again and again. Of late, I’ve started feeling like Mohinish Behl’, grunts Nuclear Bomb. ‘The last time I played a positive role, years ago in Deep Impact, all the credit was stolen by a stupid halfling. This is too much to bear’.
Nuclear Bomb was nominated for a Filmfare award for its performance in the Ohscar-nominated movie 16 December. But roles like that are hard to come by now that the hindi film industry is moving to meaningful movies like Double Dhamaal and Dabangg. ‘No one cares about super villains anymore. Brilliant movies like Waqt Humara Hai are shelved even before they are scripted, thanks to all the Bhandarkars and Bhansalis of the world.’ says Nuclear Bomb adjusting his tail-fin. So what next?
‘Well, like Mohinish Behl, I am going in for a complete image makeover, moving to the small screen and playing a good guy.’ Balaji telefilms is rumored to have offered Nuclear Bomb a meaty role in their upcoming soaps, Kaun, Fusion? and Kabhi 238, Kabhi 235.
(Kiran Kumar was too shocked to comment on this development)
Nuclear Bomb’s decision has been welcomed by other in the industry. ‘After Arjun Rampal won the National Award, Nuclear Bomb was heartbroken and was contemplating quitting the industry altogether. It is nice that it has pulled itself up and is making a comeback on the small screen’, says fellow bomb Shilpa Shetty.
We won’t be seeing Nuclear Bomb in its threatening avatar anytime soon but we hope it explodes soon on the small screen(and takes a few soaps with it).0
