When contacted, Ronit confirms and reveals that he plays an elder brother in the mafia thriller that has a motley crew including Indian, British and American actors. The actor says, “I begin shooting in April. It is a period film portraying old Delhi, but it has a very international flavour”.
Adding that he is looking forward to the experience, Ronit added, “I accepted the role because it۪s a very interesting character that is part of a great story. Director, Rohit has been living with the script since quite a few years. His conviction in the script has also helped me make a decision to do it”.
As for sharing screen space with Radhika Apte for the first time, Ronit adds, “This is my first film with Radhika, I۪ve never worked with her but I۪ve seen her work. She۪s immensely talented and I feel she will give a new dimension to her part”.
