After pretending to be a gay in Dostana and playing an outlaw in Raavan, Abhishek Bachchan will be seen as freedom fighter Surjya Sen in Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey.
The film is being directed by Ashutosh Gowariker and the actor gave a sneak peek into his character by posting a picture on the microblogging site Twitter.
"One of my dreams when I first became an actor was to play a freedom fighter. Ashutosh made that dream come true with Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey," he posted on the microblogging site.
"Surjya Sen was responsible for the Chittagong uprising in 1930. The film is based on the uprising," he added.
Deepika Padukone also stars in the movie.
