Randeep Hooda is set to reprise his role as Shankar in Syed Ahmad Afzal’s ‘Laal Rang 2’, a sequel to the 2016 film ‘Laal Rang’.
‘Laal Rang,’ a dark comedy drama set in Haryana, revolved around the blood trade business, with Shankar (Randeep) playing the owner of an illegal blood bank.
Randeep, known for films such as ‘Highway,’ ‘Jannat 2’, ‘Jism 2’, ‘Kick,’ and ‘Sultan,’ among others, shed light on his role, saying, “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.” “This is what compelled me to embark on this new journey as a producer as well, with great joy and a sense of responsibility.”
Director Syed Ahmed Afzal also released details about his film, stating: “We are extremely excited to resume the madness; the storyline is dark and murky, and lays the perfect foundation for an enchanting film, and we have the opportunity to deliver something memorable once more. The core of the sequel will be similar to the original. This sequel will be darker, meaner, more violent, and yet hilarious.”
Akshay Oberoi and Pia Bajpiee will also return from the first installment. The hunt for new additions to the second part is on.
‘Laal Rang 2: Khoon Chusva’ is co-produced by Anwar Ali and Sonu Kuntal and produced by Randeep Hooda Films, Avak Films, and Jellybean Entertainment. The film is set to begin production soon.
