Deepika’s ex Nihar to show his love story on Big Screen

After watching Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, Deepika Padukone’s Ex boyfriend Nihar Pandya realised that it takes pain to gain something that Ranbir has got in Rockstar,

Hence has decided to show his story of the heartbreak he had with the actress and how it helped him in acting in his debut film,

Nihar Pandya was broken when Deepika Padukone left him after she got invilved with Ranbir Kapoor, Nihar said,

While I was watching Rockstar, I realised why it was important for me to have gone through what I did to become a good actor,

No pain, no gain. That’s what Ranbir is told in Rockstar, that in order to be a good artiste you have to experience heartbreak. I’ve felt the pain and now I am ready to show that pain on screen.

Director and friend Prashant Chadha and Nihar are putting finishing touches to his story of what exactly transpired between him and Deepika and how his life changed after she left him.

Nihar said,

I’d be lying if I said I’ve gotten over it. The hurt somehow never goes away. When something like this happens, when the world you built with another person over the years falls apart in less than a month, you begin to question your life and priorities.

Nihar has been providing inputs on the relationship he had with the actress to director Prashant Chadha to help in getting the real feel to the film, both the actor and director also flew out of the country together recently to work on the script.

Nihar said,

During all these years since it ended I’ve never spoken about it. So the truth about what really happened is known from only one side. The entertainment industry knows Deepika’s side of the truth. I want mine to be known too.

He wont portray Deepika as a negative character, he said,

I am not going to do a film that will damage her reputation. This is not an autobiography. But there will be many episodes that will be close to my life and heart.

The film will have shots in Anupam Kher’s acting school also, where the story of both Nihar and Deepika started, he said,

That’s where it all started. That’s where I met Deepika
