For Suniel Shetty, it was dream come true when he found himself in on-screen dramatic encounters opposite Vinod Khanna in 'Koyelaanchal'. Reason being that in a career spanning over a couple of decades, he never got an opportunity to share screen space with him.
"I came the closest with a film called 'Mukti' few years back where Vinodji played my father. However, the film was shelved after being shot as producers K Sera Sera shut shop. Later, we were a part of 'Red Alert' too but didn't find ourselves in the same frame for long. However, 'Koyelaanchal' has us in full blown characters. As an IAS officer, I take on Vinodji who plays a coal mafia don," informs a source.
With two mature men on screen, it was more about mind games than fist fights coming into play.
"Absolutely," says Suniel, "Of course the film is about victory of good over evil but the way this officer brings down a powerful mafia don on his knees by following law is mind blowing. In a realistic set up like this, the two of us don't start fighting it out on screen."
We would see once the Asshu Trikha produced and directed film releases all over this Friday.
