Seems like actor Randeep Hooda is ditching his urban, macho look for a more man-on-the-street look in his next film Yeh Laal Rang. Directed by Syed Ahmed Afzal, who earlier helmed Youngistan, Hooda tweeted pictures from the film's sets in Haryana's Karnal on Monday.
Randeep Hooda reportedly plays a jat in the film. Yeh Lal Rang is a social thriller which deals with the menace of thefts in a blood bank in a small town in Haryana. In an interview earlier, Afzal was quoted as saying that the film deals with an issue never touched by Bollywood with the help of black humour, conveying the message in a lighter vein.
Akshay Oberoi, of Pizza (3D) fame, will also feature in Yeh Laal Rang. Randeep plays Akshay's mentor in the film where the duo indulges in an illegal business of blood transfusion.
Yeh Laal Rang will be perhaps Randeep's first movie that fully exploits his Haryanvi roots. He played a Haryanavi Gujjar in Imtiaz Ali's Highway but the movie concentrated on Alia Bhatt's story and did not explore his character much. Randeep Hooda will also be seen in Main Aur Charles, rumoured to be a biopic on the infamous bikini killer Charles Shobhraj. The actor is likely to have two releases this year, Do Lafzon Ki Kahaani and Main Aur Charles. The release date for Yeh Laal Rang is yet to be finalised.
