Randeep Hooda never ‘ambitioned’ to be Aishwarya’s co-star

New Delhi: While every other actor wants to romance or share screen space with stunning Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Randeep Hooda says that he had no such ambitions.

The actor, who will be seen playing Aishwarya’s brother in Omung Kumar’s upcoming film, ‘Sarabjit’, said in an exclusive interview to ANI, that he only considers his role and likes to work with the director more.

“I never had an ambition to act with her as a co-star. I only look for roles for me and I work with the director more. In fact, somebody pointed out that we look a lot like brother-sister, which is strange but anyway it’s good,” Randeep Hooda told ANI.

Directed by Omung Kumar, ‘Sarabjit’ is a biopic on an Indian farmer who was convicted for terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death.

He was attacked by inmates at a prison in Lahore in April 2013 and died a few days later.

Aishwarya will be seen playing the role of Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur and the title role will be played by Randeep.

Randeep was most recently seen promoting Parle and MTV campaign called ‘MTV Junkyard project’ in New Delhi. The initiative aims at engaging people to change their habits and help in keeping the country clean. (ANI)
