The promos of Vikramaditya Motwani's LOOTERA had initially focused on the authentic vintage look, the melodious music and the crackling romance between the lead actors, Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha.
However, the next teaser saw the entry of a third, all important character, with a rich baritone voice, who seemed to be after the LOOTERA himself, obviously Ranveer Singh. But it was not very clear as to who he was.
Well, the makers may have kept him (Mr. Singh) a mystery figure, but the 'Zinda Hoon' song promo has revealed the secret (we had given a hint in February itself!- Adil Hussain's unconventional act …..). It is none other than master actor Adil Hussain of AGENT VINOD, ENGLISH VINGLISH and LIFE OF PI (The Taiwan shot portion) fame.
When we caught up with Adil, after much persuasion, he let the cat out of the bag and said, ''As I had told you that I essay an unconventional role. Actually, I play a CBI officer in LOOTERA, who is after Ranveer Singh, looking for him anywhere and everywhere (dead or alive!). This is the only thing that I can reveal at this stage.''
But for our patrons, we can reveal something interesting-We have been privy to the close up(s) of Adil's new look in LOOTERA, and it is quite radically different and interesting from what we have seen of the actor so far. And most will agree with us when the film releases on 5th July, globally.
