Randeep Hooda focuses only on his work and not the star cast
Actor Randeep Hooda (right), who is sharing screen space with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in a biopic on Indian death row prisoner Sarabjit Singh, says that he focuses only on his film’s director and not his co-stars.
After roping in Aishwarya for the role of Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, the makers have chosen Randeep to play the protagonist of the film. “I work with directors ... never work with a costars apart from being in the scene. My interest is usually in the director because he is the person I am working with,” says Hooda.
“I have little or no interest in who the other actors in the film are. That is the director’s job. Once they (co-actors) are on the job, then it is my job. Before that, I am not worried or nervous about doing this ... it wouldn’t matter to me,” he said.
When asked to comment on Aishwarya being part of the film, Randeep simply said, “Great.”
The movie will narrate the struggle of Dalbir, whose aim in life was to get her brother out of jail who had been imprisoned in Pakistan and convicted of terrorism and spying.
Sarabjit, who died in 2013 in a jail in Pakistan, had claimed that he was a farmer who strayed into Pakistan from his village located on the border.
Besides this project, Randeep will be seen in a love story and in another film where he would play a Jat for the first time.
Talking about his projects, he says: “I am doing a film which is a pure love story. I am done with its shooting. Then I have a movie in which I will get to play a jat for the first time,” he said.
