Randeep Hooda is all set to reprise his role of Shankar in Syed Ahmad Afzal’s Laal Rang 2, a sequel to the 2016 film Laal Rang.
Laal Rang set in Haryana was a dark comedy-drama around the blood trade business and Shankar (Randeep) was shown as the owner of an illegal blood bank.
“This is what has compelled me to embark on this new journey as a producer too with a lot of joy and a sense of responsibility towards it,” Hooda said.
Director Syed Ahmed Afzal also briefed about the film as he shared: “We are extremely excited to begin the madness again, the storyline is dark, murky and lays the perfect plinth for an enchanting film and we once again have a chance to deliver something memorable. The essence of the sequel shall remain akin to the original. This sequel will be darker, meaner, violent and yet funny.”
Hooda, who is best known for Highway (2014), Jannat 2 (2012), Jism 2 (2012), Kick (2014), Sultan (2016), among others, shed light on his role and spoke about producing the film, he said, “Shankar Malik is one character that will always stay close to my heart, the film even after seven years stays relevant and has a dedicated fan-base to it.”
Akshay Oberoi and Pia Bajpiee will also reprise their roles from the first part. The search is on for the new additions to the second part. Laal Rang 2: Khoon Chusva is produced by Randeep Hooda Films, Avak Films and Jelly Bean Entertainment Co Produced by Anwar Ali and Sonu Kuntal. The film is slated to go on floors soon.
