New Delhi: One of the versatile actors of B-town Randeep Hooda has already left the audience awestruck with his character in ‘Sarabjit’ trailers. Now the actor has come up with his new project ‘Laal Rang’. The movie is a social drama and uses light satire as a take on the social system of India. With a small town of Haryana as the backdrop ‘Laal Rang’ tries to portray the threat of thefts in blood banks.
In the movie Randeep plays a suave, smooth-talking gangster involved in the blood-trading racket in the town of Karnal, Haryana.
Randeep claims the movie to be a very different one and says the film has a universal subject. He says, “Laal Rang is quite cultish. One of the most heinous crimes, the trade of blood is the backdrop of the film”
“Blood trading is illegal in India and the movie reflects the buying-selling and shortage of blood in the blood banks. The story is based upon true incidents that took place in Karnal, Haryana in 2002.”
Interestingly, the director of the movie Syed Ahmed Afzal was a ‘blood’ science student in the year 2002 in Karnal itself.
Randeep mocks about the background of the movie and says, “Since the movie is based in Haryana the certain sense of humour and ‘swag’ of the Haryanvi people lightens the situation. The people in Haryana treat blood as ‘aloo’ and vegetables!”
Talking more about Laal Rang, Randeep says, “The small town, blood, friendship and love are the base of the story and will keep the audience bounded. The movie somehow turns into a thriller towards the end.”
According to Hooda the film will do well internationally and in festival circuits. He talks about his character and says, “It’s my most flamboyant character; it is larger than life.”
Though the movie started late in its promotions, Randeep is confident that the movie will grip the audience because of its ‘different’ subject.
