Rajneesh Duggal has proved time & again that he is an actor par excellence. Just recently fresh from the success of ‘Ek Paheli Leela’, the talented ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ Season 5 Winner will be seen in a brand new avatar in R – Vision’s edge – of – the – seat thriller ‘Udanchhoo’.
Ravindra Singh’s R – Vision India Pvt Ltd recently announced that they have signed on the ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ star and talented ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ Season 5 winner Rajneesh Duggal for their upcoming film ‘Udanchhoo’. The movie also marks the entry of Director Vipin Parashar, who has helmed ‘No Exit’ and ‘CM Saab’, into mainstream Hindi cinema and the debut of lead actress Saisha who will be seen romancing Rajneesh Duggal. Apart from the lead pair, other cast includes Prem Chopra, Bruna Abdullah, Ashutosh Rana & Bijendra Kala.
Speaking about signing the film Rajneesh Duggal averred, “I am quite excited to be a part of this film. After ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ I wanted to do something really interesting & exciting and ‘Udanchhoo’, being the captivating edge – of – the – seat thriller it fits perfectly.” The talented actor further added, “Vipin is a friend and when he narrated the film, I was instantly hooked onto the story and wanted to be a part of it.”
Commenting on the choice of Rajneesh Duggal as the main lead, Vipin said, “Udanchhoo for me is a very special film as it would be my 1st full – length Hindi commercial film. It was thus imperative for me to get every bit right. Given that the main lead would need to pull off a difficult action – thriller role with a significant emotional quotient, my brief for the casting agency was a difficult one. Then one day I just happened to meet Rajneesh Duggal casually and it immediately struck me that he was perfect for the role – tall, good looking, fresh from ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ and a talented actor all in one. I immediately made him the offer and he agreed. But then there were date issues and we had to go with Gautam Gulati. But destiny had its own strange way and Gautam then had date issues and Rajneesh Duggal had just these dates free. It was really awesome for me as he was my original choice for the role anyway.”
The film’s music has been composed by Avishek Majumder, a music composer who is trained in western classical music & Jazz from London College of Music. He has been working with various advertising agencies as a music composer and has worked in more than 100 advertising campaigns.
