Ketan Mehta's pleased with Randeep Hooda
Moreover, Randeep was to essay the difficult and enigmatic character of Raja Ravi Verma, a flamboyant pioneering painter who was a visionary, apart from being a great admirer of the female form.
When asked what made him chose Randeep for the role, Ketan says, "It's a passionate film and required a lot of intensity and concentration by the lead actor. My wife Deepa (Sahi) had given me a DVD of Randeep. I found the boy extremely talented, so I met him and in the first meeting itself, I knew he was the right choice."
The director goes on to add, "Randeep has given a brilliant performance by any standard and I'm really happy I made that choice."
And now that the promos of RANG RASIYA are being widely appreciated, Ketan's vision stands vindicated.
