"I'm very kicked about this project. It's very different from Omi in Kai Po Che. My look, my hairstyle, my body language... everything is new," Amit said in a statement.
In Kai Po Che, his work as Omi, who goes through a multitude of emotions and circumstances, impressed the audiences and critics alike.
It was his "effortless portrayal" of the character, which drew the banner's interest in roping him in for another project, Manish Hariprasad, creative director, Studios, Disney UTV, had earlier said.
Before venturing into films with Phoonk 2, Amit was associated with the small screen through shows like Kyun Hota Hai Pyarr and Durgesh Nandini. He was also on the first season of reality show Bigg Boss.
