After Samrat & Co, actor Rajeev Khandelwal is back with another thriller Fever. The trailer of the film was launched on Tuesday.
Written and directed by Rajeev Jhaveri, the suspense-thriller also stars Gauhar Khan along with British actress Gemma Atkinson and former Bond girl Caterina Murino.
The 40-year-old actor made his Bollywood debut with Aamir and went on to work in films like Shaitan, Soundtrack and Table No 21. He was last seen on big screen in the 2014 film Samrat & Co.
Speaking about his cast at the trailer launch in Mumbai, the director said, “Gemma embodies hotness. People who have seen her work will agree to that. To add to the fact, I am a big fan of football and she is Ronaldo’s ex-girlfriend. So, that is how I started knowing about her.”
Jhaveri then approached Italian actress Murino, who appeared in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale as Solange Dimitrios. “There cannot be a bigger romance for a spy than to romance a Bond girl. I sent Caternia the script and she was gracious enough to accept it. I met her at Monte Carlo, which is an essential location for all Bond films. I told her the role and she was excited. The fact that a spy is romancing a Bond girl completes the genre for me.”

Produced by Ajay Chabbria, Fever is scheduled to release on July 22.
