Aparshakti Khurana will play a Kashmiri terrorist in his next film, Dhokha—Round D Corner, and has learnt Kashmiri and shed weight for the role. The suspense thriller directed by Kookie Gulati features R. Madhavan, Khushali Kumar and Darshan Kumaar. The movie is set to release on September 23.

Known for films like Stree, Luka Chuppi and Hum Do Hamaare Do, as an essentially comic actor, Aparshakti now stars in a film that follows a gritty and dark central theme.

Aparshakti says, “With Dhokha…, I am attempting a very different genre for the very first time. I was trying to do something apart from comedy for a while now, and only Kookie Gulati and Bhushan Kumar showed that confidence in me. It explores a different take on human relationships and personality complexes, captured with an overall theme that is grungy and grey. I play a Kashmiri terrorist in the film. I have tried to show a different side of myself as a performer and I hope that the audience accepts me in this new version of mine on the big screen. I am really excited for this one.”

The story is based on a day in the life of an urban couple and their unexpected journey with twists and turns. The synopsis officially released by T-Series Films reads, “One day can change your life and Dhokha will compel the audience to ponder over what is true and what is false.” The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Dharmendra Sharma and Vikrant Sharma.

Aparshakti will also be seen in the spy thriller, Berlin, starring Rahul Bose, and a period drama series, Jubilee, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane.
