The film has roped in its villain and it’s none other than the ‘badman of Bollywood’ Gulshan Grover.
Speaking exclusively to in.com, Grover revealed that his role in the cop-drama is a new version of an antagonist. “I am playing the main antagonist. Director Rohit Shetty has redefined the antagonist. This antagonist is not a villain, his sense of good and bad is blurred. He thinks he is good, whereas others think he is bad.” He further added, “I have shot for 15 days and I’m rejoining the sets in the next three days for another 20 days.” He concluded that the shooting is going to go on till September. Excited much?
