Bollywood's most lovable bhai on screen Munna Bhai aka Sanjay Dutt is a true friend and we have said it earlier when he halted his charter plane to meet a dear friend in Delhi..
Now, this dear friend plays a pivotal role in his much awaited TORBAAZ which is currently in news.
The lucky friend is none other than producer and CEO of Wave Cinemas Rahul Mittra who will play the role of Col. Yakub Khan from the Afghan National Army. It’s not that Rahul Mittra got the role owing to his proximity with Sanjay Dutt and his position as the producer of this film. Rahul Mittra who has a hidden passion for acting has explored his stint as an actor in SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER and REVOLVER RANI.
A source close to the production informs that it was the persuasion of Sanju Baba and director of TORBAAZ Girish Malik that motivated Mittra to take up the challenge to play the role of Col. Yakub Khan – the army general at war with the extremist in Afghanistan who ends up working closely with Sanjay Dutt and Nargis Fakhri in their mission to save the young fidayeens (suicide bombers).
As we all know, TORBAAZ is based on the plight of young children, who are trained to become suicide bombers. Sanjay Dutt plays an army officer in the film who wants to give these ‘children of war' a ray of hope. Nargis Fakhri plays the role of an NGO worker, who looks after war refugee kids & is working towards rebuilding her country after war and destruction in Afghanistan.
Here we have an exclusive picture of Rahul Mittra in his Col. Yakub Khan get up posing with Sanjay Dutt at the location of TORBAAZ in Kyrgyzstan. The unit will continue its tough and long schedule under testing conditions till the first week of June. Recently a buzkashi scene was shot with top players from the country showing their skills.
Directed by Girish Malik and produced by Rahul Mittra, TORBAAZ is being presented by Raju Chadha and is slated to release in 2018.
