Mr. Ravindra Singh’s R-Vision India Pvt. Ltd. today, announced that they have signed on the ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ star and talented ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi’ Season 5 winner Rajniesh Duggal for their upcoming film ‘Udanchhoo’. The movie also marks the entry of Director Vipin Parashar, who has helmed ‘No Exit’ and ‘CM Saab’, into mainstream Hindi cinema and the debut of lead actress Saisha who will be seen romancing Rajniesh Duggal. Apart from the lead paid, other cast includes Prem Chopra, Bruna Abdullah, Ashutosh Rana and Bijendra Kala.
Speaking about signing the film Rajniesh said, “Am quite excited to be a part of this film. After ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ I wanted to do something really interesting and exciting and ‘Udanchhoo’, being the captivating edge-of-the seat thriller it is, fit perfectly.” The talented actor further added, “Vipin is a friend and when he narrated the film, I was instantly hooked onto the story and wanted to be a part of it.”

Commenting on the choice of Rajniesh as the main lead, Vipin said, “Udanchhoo for me is a very special film as it would be my first full-length Hindi commercial film. It was thus imperative for me to get every bit right. Given that the main lead would need to pull off a difficult action-thriller role with a significant emotional quotient, my brief for the casting Agency was a difficult one. Then one day I just happened to meet Rajniesh casually and it immediately struck me that he was perfect for the role – tall, good looking, fresh from Khatron Ke Khiladi and a talented actor all in one. I immediately made him the offer and he agreed. But then there were date issues and we had to go with Gautam Gulati. But destiny had its own strange way and Gautam then had date issues and Rajniesh’s had just these dates free. It was really awesome for me as he was my original choice for the role anyway.”

The film’s music has been composed by Avishek Majumder, a music composer who is trained in western classical music & Jazz from London College of Music. He has been working with various advertising agencies as a music composer and has worked in more than 100 advertising campaigns. He debuted as a music composer in a Hindi film with Jimmy Shergil starrer film “Four Two ka One. Some of his upcoming films are “Gadaar” and “Saddey CM Saab (Punjabi feature films, featuring Harbhajan Mann), “No Exit” (Hindi Feature Film).
