Randeep Hooda is one of Bollywood's finest actors who proves his mettle with each film he stars in. From playing a cop in commercial hit Kick to essaying the role of a prisoner in Sarbjit, Randeep has done it all. The film's Hooda stars in may or may not be a box office winner but they underline the fact that Randeep surely has a long way to go.
While in 2018, we'll witness Randeep in Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani starrer Baaghi 2, the Sarbjit actor has bagged yet another project based on dacoit Sultana. The project which has many have been planning since 2014 will now see the light of the day in 2018. The yet untitled project will be held by Madhureeta Anand and will be produced by Rahul Mittra.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Rahul said, "The film will be shot in the Terai region of Uttar Pradesh and Randeep, who is a champion horseman and rider, will film the extensive action and racing sequences in Kazakistan, where real locations will pass off as North India from the '20s."
The film will be based on author- playwright Sujit Saraf's 2009 novel, The Confession of Sultana Daku.
While the story of the robin-hood dacoit is dark, makers are planning to give it a contemporary twist and will go on floors in April 2018. Mittra further added, "The approach to the film will not be dark and gory and more like a superhero-drama, where Robin Hood Randeep's character takes from the rich and gives to the poor as India fights for freedom."
Before Randeep, Dara Singh had essayed the role of this dacoit in 1972 Bollywood action-drama titled Sultana Daku.
Talking about working in Baaghi 2, a source had revealed to the tabloid saying “He is expected to get his earlobes pierced and will sport dreadlocks and a funky wardrobe. His character is called LSD.”
While Baaghi was helmed by Heropanti director Sabbir Khan, Baaghi 2 will be directed by Ahmed Khan.
Sajid Nadiadwala confirmed the news to the tabloid and said, “Yes, Randeep is a part of Baaghi 2.”
While different filmmakers had offered the film to Salman Khan, Arjun Kapoor and others, the film has finally found its lead in Randeep Hooda and we are waiting to witness Randeep's portrayal of this Robinhood.
