Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda to star in “John Day”

The ‘Guru Shishya’ jodi of Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda will reunite after a long gap of eleven years for a film titled John Day. The first film that saw them together was Randeep’s debut film Monsoon Wedding where he got an opportunity to share screen space with Naseer saab.

From there on, Randeep, who is an ardent fan of Naseer saab’s work, got along well with him and they have been doing a lot of theatre work together. Now John Day gives them an opportunity to share screen space yet again.

Directed by Ahishor Solomon and produced by Anjum Rizvi (who earlier produced A Wednesday) along with K. Asif, John Day will be ana edge of the seat revenge drama.

Randeep, who considers Naseer saab as his Guru, friend and a confidant is extremely glad to have finally got a script that will do justice to both his character and that of Naseer saab’s.

Speaking about the film, producer Anjum Rizvi says, “Solomon came to me with this great script and he had Naseer saab and Randeep in mind for the two lead characters. We approached them and both readily agreed after listening to the script. We are happy to have both of them together in John Day where both have very interesting roles.”

Randeep Hooda too shared his excitement, “I am very lucky that my first ever scene in cinema was with Naseer saab. I was always a big fan of his but after Monsoon Wedding he also became a good friend and confidant. I have learnt a lot from him and I am glad that after doing theatre for so many years with him, I am finally getting such an interesting film to share screen space with him.”
