Gulshan Grover, who has made a place for himself in the list of most famous villains of the 90s and fondly called as the 'Bad Man' of Bollywood, will be joining the cast of Akshay Kumar's highly-awaited film Sooryavanshi. As per a report in DNA, Grover has been roped in to play the main antagonist in Rohit Shetty's directorial venture.
"This antagonist is a new kind of opposition to the hero. His sense of good and bad has blurred. While you may think that he’s bad, he thinks he’s a good guy," a source revealed.
When the publication reached out to the 63-year-old actor for comment, he refused to divulge any details. "All I can say at this point is that I’m a huge fan of Rohit Shetty’s films. I’m a big believer that not only does he deserve all the success he has got but also deserves a lot more for the way he understands the responsibility of success and mega-movies entertainment so well. He keeps his family and young audiences in mind while making his films," he said.
He went on to add, ''Apart from the working relationship and the camaraderie on the sets, Akshay is like a brother. He’s such a positive force around and the support from him is so strong, it’s always great working with him.''
Gulshan Grover and Akshay Kumar have worked together in several films such as Mohra (1994), Sabse Bada Khiladi (1995), Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi (1996), Mr and Mrs Khiladi (1997), International Khiladi (1999), Khiladi 420 (2000) and Hera Pheri (2000).
The film also stars Katrina Kaif in the lead role and is slated to hit the screens next year.
