‘Fever’ has universal appeal: Rajeev Khandelwal

Mumbai: Actor Rajeev Khandelwal says the audience across the globe will be able to understand his forthcoming film “Fever” as it has a universal appeal.

“I am very happy that the film is getting a worldwide release because this is a film which has a very universal theme and universal appeal. I am sure that anyone and everyone who watches the film, will understand it and relate to the film. It’s not going to be an alien film for someone in Africa, Australia or New Zealand,” said Khandelwal.

“But at the same time, I am really nervous because I can’t help but be nervous before release of any film of mine. There’s this anxiety about… whether the audience is going to really like our effort or they may not appreciate the effort,” he added.

The Rajeev Jhaveri directorial also stars Gauahar Khan, Caterina Murino, and Gemma Atkinson.

Khandelwal said: “I feel that there is a very good surprise in store for our Indian audiences, people might have seen suspense thrillers but it is the first time that they will see a suspense thriller like this. It’s going to be a classic… a film that you would want to keep in your shelf.”

“Fever” will release on August 5.
