Playing a new version of 'baddie' in Sooryavanshi, says Gulshan Grover

The actor has already completed 20 days of shooting for the Rohit Shetty film.


Actor Gulshan Grover, who is often called the "bad man" of Hindi cinema, is set to treat his fans with his villainy in Rohit Shetty's upcoming film Sooryavanshi (2020).

Grover says his role in the film is a new version of an antagonist. "For a long time I haven't played 'baddie' characters in films," Grover told the IANS news agency. "Everywhere I go, people say they miss Bad Man on-screen. Now, I am back to entertain my fans. I have got a chance to play a baddie once again and that too in one of the biggest films.

"I am playing the antagonist in the movie. Rohit has redefined this baddie role. He has given a new dimension to it. I can't wait for people to see this new version of baddie. I thank Rohit for giving full justice to the character," he added.

Gulshan Grover has already completed shooting for 20 days. He is gearing up for the next schedule.

Sooryavanshi features actor Akshay Kumar in the lead. In the movie, he essays the role of Veer Sooryavanshi, a character that was introduced as an anti-terrorist squad officer in the Ranveer Singh-starrer film Simmba (2018).

Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for the film in Bangkok, Thailand.

Gulshan Grover was also happy to be reunited with Akshay Kumar after many years. The two had worked together in films like Mohra (1994), Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995) and Hera Pheri (2000).

He said: "Akshay is like my brother. Whenever I work with him, it feels like coming back home. I love him."

Sooryavanshi also stars actors Sikander Kher, Katrina Kaif and Neena Gupta.
