Though not much about the project has been revealed, it seems the film would be the beginning of a new action series, as Karan mentioned that it is the first film in the franchise. So, can we expect a ‘Dhoom ‘ kind of a film or is it a desi version of Hollywood’s ‘Fast and Furious’?
Sushant Singh Rajput is currently riding high on the success of MS Dhoni biopic that entered the Rs 100 crore club last year. Meanwhile, Jacqueline has been busy with a couple of projects too. After working on several films last year, she made her television debut as a judge on dance reality show, ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’.
It is for the first time that Sushant and Jacqueline have collaborated for a film. Are you excited to watch them together?
