Randeep Hooda plays 18 different characters in his next movie
For women who cant have enough of Randeep Hooda,theres a lot to look forward to,beginning with his forthcoming release Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaya. The film,due for release in February,has Hooda playing 18 different characters.
The film is about a housewife (Raima Sen) whose husband (Arbaaz Khan) is having an extramarital affair. Her search for an ideal man sparks off her imagination and I take the shape of her 18 fantasy men, says Hooda. His characters often derive from popular male icons and vary from that a Haryanvi cop to James Bond. Ive played a chef,Zorro,Humphrey Bogart,Elvis Presley,Amitabh Bachchan in Mukkadar ka Sikandar,Dharmendraji from Shalimar; basically,every attractive man you can think of, he says,adding that his personal favourite is the character of a sexy model. I arrive shirtless at Raimas doorstep and ask her Thoda doodh milega? Its hilarious.
The actor is still recovering from a recent leg injury from playing polo and will be promoting his film on crutches. That should win some sympathy, he smiles.
And many votes,we think.
