Puja Gupta’s Role In Mickey Virus Is Of A Tom boy
From the role of a glamorous, sultry neighbor in Vicky Donor, Puja Gupta has now transformed to a boisterous tomboy computer geek for her latest Bollywood outing, Dar Motion Picture’s, Mickey Virus. Since the announcement of Mickey Virus there have been multiple comparisons drawn between the two films, some aptly so. Mickey Virus and Vicky Donor are both shot in Delhi and mark the transition of two renowned TV personalities. The only creative common ground for the two films is that they both foray into new age content, sperm donation and the mystical world of hacking. Puja is the only other common thread between the two projects.
In Mickey Virus, the energetic young theater artist will be seen playing the role of Chutney. She is one of the central elements of gang Mickey Virus, an outspoken tomboy amongst the guys. Directed by Saurabh Varma, “Mickey Virus” stars Manish Paul and Elli Avram as the lead pair. The film hits theatres Friday.
Speaking on her role, Pooja said, “Shooting for Mickey Virus was really exiting. The team was young and energetic. My films have been based in Delhi but that is where the similarities stop, the characters I portray are polls apart. In Vicky Donor I was a young college girl with hormones running high, ‘the Area ki Hottie’ whereas in Mickey Virus I am playing one of the guys, dressed in loose comfortable shirt, jeans, cargos etc.”
