Mumbai: Producers on Thursday announced that they will be directing an action thriller starring Bollywood actor Sonu Sood Fateh.
The film is being directed by Abhinandan Gupta, who has worked as an assistant director on Bajirao Mastani and the upcoming Shamshera, with the support of Sea Studio.
Inspired by real life events, Fateh Sood is seen in a never-before-seen cinematic universe with high octane action sequences.
The 48-year-old actor, who is known for his villainous outings in Dabangg and Simba, said he was thrilled to be a part of such a thought-provoking film as Fateh. “The story sparked my interest. It was one of the most crucial issues that needed our attention. As soon as I read the script, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I’m so excited to bring this thought-provoking story to the audience,” Sood said in a statement.
Shah Rukh Patel, CBO at Sea Studio, said it was exciting to portray Sood as a hero in their film, which has garnered national attention for helping immigrants get to their homes during the Kovid-19 epidemic.
“Sonu is a great actor and has proven himself consistently for the last one and a half decades. But what he has done for the last one year has made him a real hero. A story like that will excite everyone,” Patel said.
Produced by Sea Studios and Shakti Sagar Productions, Fateh is expected to hit theaters in early 2022.
Sood will next be seen with Yash Raj Films’ Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar and Miss World 2017 Manushi Chiller.
