Here’s a new set of images from the upcoming biopic, Sarbjit, helmed by filmmaker Omung Kumar. The two key characters, played by Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Randeep Hooda, are seen in intense avatars in these photos. In one of the stills, Ash is also seen looking ethereal in a red salwar-kameez; looks like, it’s a song sequence. An aged Ash also impresses us. So does the shattered, hopeless Randeep from behind the bars.
Sarbjit is easily one of the most awaited films of the year for reasons aplenty. One, it’s a biopic. Two, it features Aishwarya in an intense role. Three, Randeep plays the title role in it, and has undergone extreme image makeover for it. In order to attain a frail look, Hooda had to undergo a lot – he lost 18 kilos in 28 days! That’s quite a lot of efforts for someone as hot as this dashing dude of Bollywood.
Though Randeep plays the title role in the biographical drama, Aishwarya plays an equally pivotal and strong character in it. She plays Sarbjit’s sister, Dalbir Kaur, who will also be the narrator of the tragic tale. Darshan Kumaar and Richa Chaddha too play key roles in the film, which is slated to hit the cinema halls on 20th May this year.
