After delivering a sensational performance in Anushka Sharma’s Paatal Lok, Abhishek Banerjee is now set to appear in a dharma film. The actor plays the role of a laundryman in Karan Johar’s upcoming film. The film is called Ajeeb Daastaans. In a recent interview Abhishek revealed that he could not believe it when he got a call from Dharma productions.
He revealed saying, “Firstly, I didn’t believe it when I got a call from Raj sir, saying that Dharma was making this film because its script is so twisted and inspired by a real life story. So, I was a little amazed that Dharma was making it. But I knew that I was getting into a very good team because Raj sir is such a good director. I have worked with Nushrratt before and she is phenomenal and the cherry on the cake was Inayat. She was so honest with her acting. It’s very difficult to work with children because they don’t pretend that they are acting. So, I learnt a lot through her in this movie.”
The actor is currently shooting for Amar Kaushik’s Bhediya in Arunachal Pradesh. The film stars Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon. The actor will also be seen in Akarsh Khurana’s Rashmi Rocket, Umesh Shukla’s Aankh Micholi, and Satram Ramani’s Helmet. Ajeeb Daastaanas is set to release on April 16.
