Upen suffering from a ‘Bobby complex’

Heart throb Upen Patel who is presently in South Africa shooting for Suneel Darshan's Shakalaka Boom Boom cant stop raving about Bobby Deol. Upen Patel plays the role of a rock star in the film. He has just finished his first day of shoot with Bobby and the two seem to have gelled well. Says Upen, "Bobby is such a genuine guy. You can't help but like him. He is extremely helpful to me. He has been patiently rehearsing at length with me. In fact he has been giving me pointers on intense scenes. He is completely unselfish as an actor. He is more than willing to let the other person take over if need be. He doesn't try to hog the frame" In fact Upen is also full on praise of Bobby as an actor. Says Upen, "I was in shock He is such an under-rated actor. I was completely blown by his intense scenes. Right now Im suffering from a 'Bobby complex'. He is so talented and yet he hates showing off. Its going to be a real challenge even if I perform half of his caliber" It seems like Upen can't get enough of Bobby. But Upen also seems to be aware that he has to put his best effort. Upen adds, "I will be putting my best effort for this film. I understand that there were critical reviews for my debut film. But it was a learning process. I have paid heed to it. This film will answer all my critics. I am so thankful to Suneel Darshan for giving me this platform to showcase my capabilities. He is such an actors director and taps the actors potential. Im so thankful to him for giving me this opportunity and reposing that faith in me. I have to deliver" Whilst Upen understands and is upfront about answering his critics, he has been offered big banner films. And he would like to prove his mettle as an actor in these films. After finishing the schedule in South Africa, Upen will be flying to his home town for his shoot with Vipul Shah's 'Namaste London' Upen wistfully remarks, "It definitely will be a virtual homecoming for me. I just can't wait to see my near and dear ones. But till then I will be putting my best effort for Shakalaka Boom Boom
