Randeep Hooda and Richa Chadha launched the trailer of Main Aur Charles in quite a unique and grand fashion in Mumbai. The lead pair added to the excitement when they recreated their filmy smooching scene.
Randeep who is playing the famous “bikini killer” Charles Sobhraj in the movie believes the latter is not guilty and wants to run a campaign to free him.” Of course. Why would I not think he’s innocent? Even in Nepal where he’s been thrown into prison, he was a straight prisoner,” said Randeep, when a reporter asked him about Sobhraj’s innocence. Sobhraj is currently in a Nepal jail facing a sentence for the brutal murders he committed in the 1970s. He was previously in an Indian jail for a similar crime.
Randeep was also asked whether he empathized with him, to which he replied, “Of course I empathized with him. How can you play a character without empathizing for the character. And no, I didn’t feel sorry for him at all, in fact he knows what he is doing and is good at that. In fact sometimes when I get up from sleep, I feel that he knows what I’m doing. It’s very strange but that’s the kind of omnipresence that this character has.”
The movie will release on October 30th.
