New Delhi: Tennis star Leander Paes is making an entry into Bollywood with director Ashok Kohli's socio-political drama 'Rajdhani Express'. The film also stars Priyanshu Chatterjee, Sudhansu Pandey, Gulshan Grover and Jimmy Shergill. Sayali Bhagat, Shilpa Shukla and Mukesh Rishi will also be seen in the film.
The film revolves around a man named Keshav (Leander Paes) who discovers that the life is not going to remain the same after a dramatic train ride. The journey from Delhi to Mumbai becomes a life changing experience for him.
Leander Paes is all set to make his presence felt in the film industry with 'Rajdhani Express' but will he able to do it? Performing on the court is entirely different from performing on the celluloid, we have seen several sports personalities failing miserably in the field of acting, so Paes needs to work extra hard on his expressions in the movie. Hopefully, fellow actors would come to Paes' rescue.
Sports star Leander Paes makes his Bollywood debut with 'Rajdhani Express'. A still from the film shows Jimmy Shergill.
B-town will have two film trains chugging on big screens next year - Rohit Shetty's 'Chennai Express' and Ashok Kohli's 'Rajdhani Express'.
The story is about Keshav, an errand boy for a gun runner, who one day steals the weapon and a ticket to escape and travel in Rajdhani Express from Delhi to Mumbai. However, inside the train his fate is no better.
