Randeep Hooda was doing a movie on the Battle of Saragarhi, an equivalent theme we saw in Akshay Kumar's Kesari. And now the actor has spoken about how he was hurt his film could never be made! Hooda is understood for his meticulousness and marvelous performances. For this film that was being helped by Rajkumar Santoshi and tentatively titled 21, Hooda grew an actual beard and didn't even take up a project for over two years.
Such was his commitment to the part that he even learned Sikh Martial Arts for the film, but unfortunately, fate had other plans. The film never saw the lights of the day and therefore the actor moved on. And talking about this ambitious film
he said, "It hurt the audiences couldn't see a more authentic version with more real emotions of the story. That apart, you learn to maneuver on. Through the journey, I learned the principles of Sikhism and i am a far better person now."
When asked about Kumar's Kesari, he said he didn't see it because it didn't excite him much. On the work front, the actor was last seen in Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal and is now gearing up for Radhe: Your favorite Bhai, where he reunites with Salman Khan after six years. He said he did this film just for him and he are going to be the antagonist of the story. Directed by Prabhudheva, the actioner is slated to release on Eid 2020.
He also has Sai Kabir's Mard arising , an equivalent filmmaker who made the country Revolver Rani with Kangana Ranaut in 2014. And returning to Kesari, it had been a movie that was lauded for its action and performances. the thought of 21 Sikh soldiers fighting 10,000 Afghans is both frightening and interesting . If all goes well, we hope to ascertain Hooda and Santoshi's version too one day!
