Adhyayan Suman may have not made a memorable debut with Haal-E Dil (2008) and claims little recall value with his performance in Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009). But looks like the actor has finally managed to grab a potent role in Sajid Khan’s remake of 1983 hit Himmatwala. A source reveals that in the film, Adhyayan will play the same role as Shakti Kapoor, who was the antagonist in the original. “But since Sajid’s film is not an exact copy of the original Adhyayan’s character has also been modified accordingly,” says the source.
While Sajid has been overtly promoting his lead cast, Ajay Devgn and south actor Tamannaah, who reprise actors, Jeetendra and Sridevi from the original, he is quite tightlipped about the other characters in the film. “Sajid wants to build up the interest of this audiences. He will gradually reveal information about the other characters, one after the other,” insists our source.
When we contacted Adhyayan, he subtly confirmed the news but refused to give us any other information. “We aren’t supposed to talk about this, it is to be kept a secret. So, only Sajid will be to give you details.”
Adhyayan may seem to be out of the filmi circuit, but he hasn’t been out of work. He recently did a film called Dehradun Diary, which was directed by Milind Ukey. The film is based on real-life political issue. “It revolves around a guy and his mother, and their struggle to get justice against a politically powerful family who kill his brother.”
