Randeep Hooda has been roped in to play a cop in filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next production. A source close to the development described the film as comic-thriller with a social message.
“The film is a thriller comedy. It is a rom-com. It has a social message and deals with an issue, that is considered taboo in a small town.
“It has Randeep in the lead as a cop. He will be seen in a different avatar. It is not like Dabangg style cop. We are looking for the female lead,” sources close to the development said.
The writer of ‘Mubarakan’, ‘Firangi’ and yet-to-be-released ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, Balwinder Singh Janjua will make his directorial debut with this film and it will be financed by Bhansali’s banner.
The film is expected to go on floors in September or October this year and release in the first quarter of next year.
Meanwhile, Bhansali is busy with his next directorial project Inshallah, featuring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt. Randeep will next star in Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer Imtiaz Ali’s remake of Love Aaj Kal.
