Harshvardhan Rane replaces Abhishek Bachchan in JP Dutta's Paltan
Mumbai: Veteran filmmaker JP Dutta, who gave the film industry some of the finest war dramas of all time, including the National award winning Border, is back with a bang as he presents his ambitious next titled ‘Paltan”
As per a recent development, the veteran filmmaker has recently signed Harshvardhan Rane to be part of his ambitious war drama. Despite being just a film old in Bollywood, the young talented actor already has a massive fan following.
It’s learnt that the makers were looking for a tall actor, who not only had great screen presence but was also physically fit. The role is as challenging as it is physically demanding and Harshvardhan was the perfect fit.
In fact JP Dutta was blown away by him in the very first meeting and immediately knew he had found the actor he was looking for. Harsh is undoubtedly one of the best looking actors around with an enviable physique that takes years of hard work to build.
After his Bollywood debut, Sanam Teri Kasam, the actor became an overnight sensation with female fans thanks to his looks, intensity and striking screen presence. Even though he made his debut last year, Harshvardhan waited for the right script to come his way and he found Paltan to be the perfect script for him.
The actor, who normally maintains a low profile, has been in talks with a few filmmakers and has now signed JP Dutta's Paltan.
Harshvardhan is definitely an actor to watch out for, especially since he will now be rubbing shoulders with industry stalwarts in the war drama, touted as one of the biggest films releasing in 2018.
Interestingly, the lead role was first offered to Abhishek Bachchan but he reportedly walked out of the film.
Nidhi Dutta of JP Films says, “Yes, we have signed Harshvardhan Rane for Paltan but it’s too early to divulge anything about the movie or his role.”
Produced by JP Films and directed by JP Dutta, Paltan is scheduled for a summer 2018 release.
