After a bout of ill-health and hospitalisation, Shatrughan Sinha is back in full form. He has been shooting for Woh Aadmi Bahut Kuch Janta Hai and says that the film takes him back to the "dialogue-baazi" of yore.
While other details of the film, being directed by Ahsan Hyder, are being kept completely under wraps, one came to know that the film is a suspense thriller shot in Sri Lanka and Rajeev Khandelwal plays the other male lead.
When contacted, Shatrughan said: "I was supposed to do a film with Akshay Kumar after I had fully recovered from my bout of illness. But that project didn't materialise. Ahsan Hyder, who has made documentaries in the past, came to me with this very powerful story and said only I could do justice to my part."
The 67-year-old, last seen in Ram Gopal Varma's Rakta Charitra in 2010, underwent a bypass surgery in July last year.
In Hyder's film, the actor-politician will be seen delivering dramatic dialogues that made him a vital acting force in the 1980s and 1990s.
"My fans will be very happy with my part. It gives me a lot of scope for the kind of dialogue delivery that I am known for," he said.
The actor is all praise for co-star Rajeev.
"Rajeev is one of the most talented young actors I've worked with. Hard-working and focussed on his work. I am happy to be doing this film," he said.
