Dayanand Shetty to play inspector Daya in Rohit Shetty’s Singham 2
Dayanand Shetty aka Daya CID is now all set to to play the inspector Daya in Singham 2 which is to be directed by Rohit Shetty. Daya was offered a role by Rohit Shetty who is hosting the current shor Khatron Ke Khiladi 5, in which Daya is one of the contestant. Daya says, “I have known Rohit for the past 10-15 years, and have always wanted to work with him. When we were shooting for KKK, Rohit had an inspector’s role in his mind, which he offered to me, but was apprehensive because of date issues. I shoot for CID throughout the month, but I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity. I am adjusting between the film and the show and have already finished one schedule.” Dayanand has appeared in small roles earlier in films like Johnny Gaddar, but in Singham 2 he will have a substantial role. “I am with Singham (Ajay Devgn) for a good part of the film. I play a positive character,” says Daya.
As far as KKK is concerned, the first task itself saw Daya in the elimination zone. “Yes, but I think the task was a mismatch. I weigh 110 kilos and it was impossible for me to pull myself up the rope to reach the helicopter,” he explains. The scariest task for him was the one where he was shut inside an electric chamber. “I can’t tell you about it, you have to watch it,” he adds.
