    ‘She wouldn’t sit next to me’

    When Randeep was asked if it’s true he didn’t speak to Alia on the sets of Imtiaz Ali’s 2014 film Highway, he replied in affirmative, adding that the actor was so scared of him, that she wouldn’t even sit next to him. He said, “I didn’t speak to Alia for 20-25 days when we shot for Highway. She was this girl from Juhu who had not seen much of the world; she didn’t have much exposure,” he said, adding, “So, to keep her fear of my character in place…she used to be terrified of me. I made sure of that. I never spoke to her. She wouldn’t come to sit next to me also. That’s the effect we wanted in the movie.”

    ‘I stayed in touch with Dalbir, Charles’

    Randeep also revealed that the 2015 film Main Aur Charles and the 2016 film Sarbjit have had real-life changes for him. He said, “I grew close to Sarabjit’s sister (Dalbir) through filming. We stayed in touch till she passed away. She wanted me to light her funeral pyre, and I did. She was a great woman, she looked after her brother’s children, whom I talk to.” Then he jokingly added, “Similarly, I was in touch with Charles Sobhraj also. He used to call, video call and message me from jail in Nepal and I was like, Charles, you are a wanted criminal, stop calling me.”

    Randeep’s next

    Randeep will soon be seen in Swatantrya Veer Savarkar, in which he plays the titular role of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. The biographical film directed by him also stars Ankita Lokhande, Amit Sial, Rajesh Khera, Lokesh Mittal and Brajesh Jha. Mahesh Manjrekar was initially supposed to direct the film, but walked out due to creative differences.
