IANS [ Mon, Jul 8, 2013 ]
- New Delhi, July 8 (IANS) Actor Shiv Pandit managed to impress many with his performance in "Shaitan", but the impact that he left on actor-producer Akshay Kumar is turning out to be a fruitful one. The Bollywood star is said to have offered a three-film deal to the young actor.
Shiv, who was popular for his role as Hanuman Prasad, a corrupt cop in comedy TV show "F.I.R.", before he took to the big screen, will be seen sharing screen space with Akshay in action film "Boss".
"Akshay absolutely enjoyed seeing Shiv's performance on screen in 'Shaitan' and he thought that he would perfectly fit the character in 'Boss'. In fact after the audition, Akshay met Shiv in person and told him about his performance and offered him a three-film deal," said a source.
In "Boss", Shiv is paired with Aditi Rao Hydari. The project, directed by Anthony D'Souza, is co-produced by Viacom 18 Media Ltd, Cape Of Good Films and Ashwin Varde Productions. It is slated to release in October.
