Aparshakti Khurana's next film, 'Dhoka D Round Corner' is a suspense thriller directed by Kookie Gulati and co-stars R. Madhavan, Khushali Kumar, and Darshan Kumar. The movie is all set to have a big release later this year in September. The actor is known for films like 'Stree', 'Luka Chuppi' and most recently, 'Hum Do Humare Do', all of which explore the diverse human relationships in a comical way. His next Dhoka is a film which traverses different facets of human relationships, but follows a rather gritty and darker central theme.
Aparshakti adds, "With Dhoka, I am attempting a very different genre for the very first time. I was trying to do something apart from comedy for a while now but only Kookie Gulati and Bhushan Kumar showed that confidence in me. It explores a different take on human relationships intertwined because of personality complexes, captured with an overall theme which is slightly grungy and grey. I play a Kashmiri terrorist in the film. I have tried to show a different side of myself as a performer and I hope that the audience accepts me in this new version of mine on the big screen! Really excited for this one."
On speaking about his preparation for the role, the actor said, "I hired and worked extensively to learn the Kashmiri language for my character. Also had to drop down a little of weight to achieve a more lean look as the character demanded that and had to shorten my hair for the look:"
Aparshakti Khurana will also be seen in the upcoming spy thriller, Berlin, also starring Rahul Bose, and a period drama series, Jubilee, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
