Rajkummar Rao, who was last seen in trapped, has now signed his next with John Abraham. The movie is expected to go on floors in July this year.
Confirming the news, Rajkummar said:
“My character is in a relationship with Tamannaah (Bhatia) and works for a company in Dubai. He keeps flitting in and out of Mumbai. It’s an engaging story and a character that I haven’t played before.”
The actor further spoke about working with John:
“John and I share the same cinematic vision and I am looking forward to work with him. We will be meeting for reading sessions and workshops a month before shooting starts. I’ll have to gain some muscle and will start working on that after finishing ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’.”
Speaking about Rajkummar, Prerna Arora, who is producing the film with John, Arjun N Kapoor and Raj Kumar Gupta, said:
“Raj is extremely talented, I’m a huge fan. It’s a challenging role and I had to really persuade him to do the film.”
Rajkummar is currently shooting for Ratna Sinha’s romcom ‘Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana’ and his movie ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ is scheduled to release on 26th May, 2017.
