The film in question is a remake of the popular Malayalam film Keerthichakra and will be directed by Major Ravi (an ex-Indian Army Major). Major Ravi, who has been associated with directors like Priyadarshan and Rajkumar Santoshi in the past, had directed the original version starring Mohanlal which was a runaway success.
Speaking about the film, Suniel says, "Yes... I am excited about doing an action film after a long while. The original version Keerthichakra was a huge success and I hope that the Hindi remake also does well. I play the role of an officer who leads a team of 10 young commandos. My character is like a mentor and guide to the younger boys. "
The film is based on the militancy issue in Jammu and Kashmir While Suniel has been finalized for the lead role; the rest of the cast is yet to be finalized.
After having debuted with the hardcore action flick Balwaan, almost two decades ago, Suniel Shetty went on to experiment in various genres right from romance, to comedy to socially relevant films. However, those fans who have been pining to see 'Anna' in an action role can finally smile as the actor is all ready to start his next film which is an action film.
