After bagging a role in Love Aaj Kal 2 and Hollywood film Dhaka starring Chris Hemsworth, Hooda has now grabbed Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next production.
Reportedly, apart from Alia-Salman starrer Inshallah, Bhansali is working on yet another film as a producer and Randeep Hooda has been cast in the lead role for it.
The yet untitled film is a mystery thriller with comic undertones and will be directed by debutant, Balvinder Singh Janjua.
Randeep will be apparently paying the role of a cop in the film.
An Indian newspaper quotes a source stating:
“Randeep plays a cop in the film which has a lot of twists and turns.
Balwinder has been working on the script for a long time and recently started pre-production. He will start the recce shortly.”
Interestingly, Hooda has played the role of a cop in several films before including Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai and Kick.
The source adds: “Randeep suits the role to the T and will begin his prep closer to the shooting date.”
In terms of other projects, Randeep Hooda has also signed Mira Nair’s upcoming web series which is an eight-episode adaptation of Vikram Seth’s A Suitable Boy.
Talking about the same, Randeep mentioned earlier:
“Yes, it’s true I am working with Mira after almost 19 years and looking forward to it. It’s a bit early to speak more about the series or my role.”
We look forward to these new exciting ventures!
