After playing the lovey-dovey Mikesh in Permanent Roommates, Sumeet Vyas has some big shoes to fill in (Russel Kane’s to be precise), in his next digital venture. Voot will air an Indianised version of BBC Worlwide’s show Stupid Man, Smart Phone. And buzz is that Sumeet will host the series.
As the format of the show, its host and a contestant struggle to survive in a remote area with the help of their smart phones only, and no knowledge of the local language and customs. For India’s digital medium, having a series based on international format is a big boost.
For Sumeet, this is another feather in his colorful cap. He will soon be working on Veere Di Wedding, where he is cast opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. Sumeet has already shot for another movie Aapkey Kamrey Mein Koi Rehta Hai, starring Swara Bhaskar and Amol Parashar.
