Over the past two decades, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda has created a space for himself in the industry. Not only is he known for delivering critically-acclaimed movies like Highway (2014), Rang Rasiya (2014) and Sarbjit (2016), but he has also never shied away from expressing his views against animal cruelty and has made efforts to save the animals when necessary. He had adopted nine horses from a NGO, Friendicoes’ in Gurugram, in 2017.
The 42-year-old, who has delivered many hits in his career, is one of the most sought after actors in Bollywood. Even Arbaaz Khan had mentioned that Randeep was the first choice for Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg before Salman Khan. Recently the Murder 3 actor wrapped up shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s Aaj Kal, which also stars Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan in lead roles. He will be playing an important character in the film. Many are waiting for the announcement of his next movie!
As per sources Randeep’s next movie, tentatively titled Rat On The Highway, revolves around an advertising professional who struggles to remember the past 48-hours of his life while being stranded on a Highway. Talking about the same, producer Mohaan Naadar, who has produced Manji: The Mountain Man, said,
Randeep plays an advertising professional who is unable to recollect the last 48 hours of his life. He is in the middle of a highway, trying to piece it all together. This film was originally conceived by Sunil Saini, Sunny Deol’s manager. I really liked the concept and suggested we reach out to Randeep as we needed an actor par excellence. Fortunately he loved the script too.- Mohaan Naadar
The producer also revealed that Randeep is scheduled to touch down three days prior to the first day of shoot for a workshop. While Mohaan and director Vivek are still working on the Jism 2 actor’s look for the film, the cast and crew will begin filming in Arbroath, Scotland from 16 August.
Directed by Vivek Chouhan and produced by The Production Headquarters Ltd – UK, Randeep Hooda’s new project Rat On The Highway (tentative title) is an edge of the seat thriller in a format that has never been attempted in India before.
