The character of the legendary painter is played in two parts by the actor. First as a 60-year old and then as 20-year old.
"I think this film will be one of the landmark films of my career. I have worked very hard for this film. It is a very special film and hopefully the audience will also enjoy watching me in this avatar," Randeep said.
The movie directed by Ketan Mehta is an adaptation of Marathi writer Ranjit Desai's biographical novel Raja Ravi Varma. Although the film was screened at the 2008 London Film Festival, it was in post-production stage since then due to the Censor Board's objection with certain bold scenes.
Rang Rasiya will release on November 7 and Randeep feels that the audience are more accepting.
"This movie has had such a big struggle be it with its release and content. I am glad that this film is releasing now because had it come out before, it would have been ahead of its time. Ravi Varma is a huge icon in our country but people are unaware of him and his contribution to arts and culture besides giving face to our gods and goddesses. Through this movie I am sure that they will be inspired by the story of the great artist,"Randeep added.
Randeep Hooda had an eventful year 2014 by giving hits like Highway and Kick. The actor will be seen in Karan Johar produced Ungli besides Rang Rasiya, which will be out on November 28.
"I would like to think that this is the best phase of my career so far but not the epitome of my career," said Randeep, who will also be seen playing serial killer Charles Sobhraj in Main Aur Charles.
