JP Dutta is back to doing what he does the best – polish war-ravaged stories and bring those gems back on the big screen. With his latest movie Paltan all set to hit cinemas this Friday, let’s take a look at the star cast and why it is a potential multi-starter blockbuster you cannot afford to miss.
Known for his eccentric sense of style, husky voice and selective roles, Arjun Rampal plays one of the four key characters in Paltan. Having led a limited yet illustrious film career, Rampal is known to bring a power-packed punch to the roles he chooses to assay.
Mostly known for his roles in action films, we’d be surprised if Sonu Sood was not apart of Paltan! With this movie, Sonu will reportedly finally fulfill his dream of playing a soldier on-screen. In fact, he was so touched during the shooting schedules that he requested JP Dutta if he could keep his army-man uniform as a memoir. News has it that Dutta has agreed too!
The son of veteran actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha, Luv Sinha has had a short but impressive run on screen. To excel yet again in Paltan, Luv did his stunts on his own despite being suggested to go for a stunt-double by Dutta himself. This young actor’s dedication towards his craft will be worth a see.
How can a Dutta war film be complete without our very own Jaggu Dada, right? After Border and Refugee, the uber-cool Jaggu Dada will be seen in the role of a commanding officer in Paltan and is also one of the leading characters of the story.
This popular television star was primarily chosen for his role as Major in Dutta’s Paltan because he hails from a family of army men. In fact, if reports are to be believed, Gurmeet was trained for his role by none other than his father himself. With his television fans excited to see him up on the big screen, it will be interesting to see Gurmeet in Paltan.
For a physically demanding role, Dutta was on a look-out for a fit actor with a fresh take at acting. If reports are to be believed, Harshvardhan has replaced Abhishek Bachchan in Paltan, and by this very acknowledgment, his role in his second movie will be worth the wait!
In the news for his portrayal of Dawood Ibrahim in Haseena Parker, Siddhanth Kapoor will be seen playing the role of an army officer in Paltan. In fact, to bring authenticity to his role in Paltan, Siddhanth has followed a special diet and a workout regime too. We are sure that the hard work has paid off and that his performance will be impressive too.
These women will bring to Paltan what only women can bring to a boy drama- crackling chemistry, innocence, and the much required emotional balance. Paired opposite various stars, these talented ladies will do their bit while their men fight the glorious battles at war.
Well, we believe that we have given you enough reasons why you should not be missing Paltan- the next big war drama. So, are you ready to join the Paltan? Stay tuned to this space for the Paltan review.
