Today, after much hype and drama, the director Omung Kumar has revealed the actor’s name who will star opposite Aishwarya Rai in his upcoming venture ‘Sarabjit’. Lately, the decision was stuck between Irrfan Khan and Randeep Hooda. Now the official star to play Sarabjit Singh (the main character) is Randeep Hooda.
The director, who rose to fame by his directorial debut ‘Mary Kom’, Omung Kumar himself confirmed this within a statement.
“Yes, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda are going to be a part in my next biopic ‘Sarbjit’,” Kumar said at an event.
Sarabjit utters the story of a brave Indian who died proudly even after being a row prisoner in Pakistan. Aishwarya Rai will play the sister role of Randeep Hooda, i.e., Sarabjit’s sister Dilbir Kaur Singh.
The movie also observes the determination and struggles of Dilbir Kaur, who only had one aim in life and that is to save and rescue her brother (mistakenly identified as an Indian spy by Paki Government) from Pakistan anyhow.
Sarabjit shooting will commence from October 2015, and will be released in the mid-2016. This fast because, it will only have a schedule of 70 days in Punjab, the homeland of Sarabjit Singh.
Aishwarya Rai and Randeep Hooda will share screen space together for the first time. And Randeep will be seen this year in Main Aur Charles after previous year’s Highway.
