Mumbai, November 15: "Permanent Roommates" actor Sumeet Vyas says after a string of good guy roles, playing a negative character in upcoming film "Kajarya," was a much needed change.
The movie, directed by Delhi-based filmmaker Madhureeta Anand, explores the issue of female foeticide and is scheduled to release on December 4.
"It is a special film where everyone was driven by passion. We all worked hard for the film, more so because it is for a special cause, female foeticide and upliftment of women.
"I am playing a slightly negative character which is refreshing. Otherwise there are chances that you will get typecast in a particular kind of role," Sumeet said.
The actor became a known face with The Viral Fever's "Permanent Roommates", a five-part web series with 40-minute episodes.
However, Sumeet did not expect the show to be so successful when he came on board.
The actor-writer is now geared up for its second season which begins shooting in December and is likely to air by January end.
