Dayanand Shetty aka Daya of CID is all set to play inspector Daya in Singham 2. He was offered the role by Rohit Shetty who is hosting Khatron Ke Khiladi (KKK) 5, in which Daya is one of the contestants. Says Daya, "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 inpsector'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."
The beefy actor who has appeared in small roles earlier in films like Johnny Gaddar says that he has a substantial role in Singham 2. "I am with Singham (Ajay Devgn) for a good part of the film. I play a positive character," says Daya. Ask him if Rohit has him breaking any doors in the film too, and he quips, "The scene I have shot for involves firing. Aage darwaza sequence ayega toh todna padega."
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 smiles.
