Krian Media has signed Randeep Hooda for a film titled Yeh Laal Rang to be directed by Syed Ahmad Afzal, who earlier directed Youngistaan. The film will deal with the topical issue of blood theft and blood mafia prevalent both in Indian small town and metro alike, which has never been explored in Hindi cinema before.
Says Raj Malik, SVP-Film Production and Distribution, Krian Media, “Randeep is one of the finest actors we have in the business and has always created a lasting impression of the characters he has portrayed. The audience and the film trade recognize him as a complete actor. We are thrilled to be working with someone of his high caliber.”
“Yeh Lal Rang is a social thriller set in a small town of Haryana. While the back drop of the film deals upon a very serious social issue, the black humour will convey the message in a lighter vein. Randeep loved the story when he heard it” adds director Syed Ahmad Afzal.
The film is slated to go on floors in July this year.
