Gaurav Chopra, who is well-known for some of his television work, is all set to play the villain in Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Bachchan Pandey’.
Chopra, who is currently shooting for the film in Rajasthan, has been hinting at an exciting new project and character on his socials for a few days now. Talking to E Times, the actor shared, “Debuting in a film that has Akshay Kumar sir is a privilege. As the antagonist of the film and to stand up against him, I needed that confidence that Farhad sir, Akshay sir, and Sajid sir gave me on the set in Jaisalmer. They made me feel at home, although the entire ensemble cast and crew had been shooting for at least 50 days before I joined them”.
Sharing about the film being his first Bollywood film, he also commented, “I feel extremely fortunate to be cast in a film produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. It doesn’t get better than this for a debut. To find someone like Farhad (Samji) sir as a director was great. He literally held my hand through it because I had a lot of questions and doubts. He gave me confidence and brought me into the film”.
Many will be excited to see Chopra in this film, alongside Kumar and the rest of the cast.
It’s scheduled for release on 26th January 2022.
