Actor Randeep Hooda is geared up for the release of his big Hollywood project Extraction alongside Chris Hemsworth. The actor who is known for his craft in Hindi cinema, is now hoping that Netflix’s Extraction opens doors for him but also has a funny take to it. Randeep joined Koimoi for an exclusive chat and below is what he said.
Randeep Hooda in an exclusive chat spoke about why it took so long for someone to recognise the action hero in him, what he expects from Extraction and how he hopes it opens new avenues.
When asked if he sees new avenues opening, the Love Aaj Kal actor said, “Of course every work you do, you feel that it should count and go places. The greatest desire of every artist is to reach out to as many people as possible, hopefully without selling their souls. Extraction already is a big Hollywood production, reaching out in 192 countries. With the whole equal opportunity thing opening up there are few characters that are introduced that belong to certain ethnicity. So we are in that phase in cinema, so I hope it will open out more doors for me, though I just have to stop closing them (laughs).”
Extraction has become one of the most anticipated film in the digital space worldwide and rightly so. Directed by Sam Hargrave, the film is produced and written by Joe Russo of the Russo Brother known for their blockbuster venture Avengers. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Pankaj Tripathi, Rudraksh Jaiswal, David Harbour, Priyanshu Painyuli and the ensemble. The movie is set to release on Netflix on April 24.
