Aftab signs 3-film deal with Sanjay Gupta

Aftab Shivdasani is in very good shape…quite literally so! He has built up his muscles and tattooed his forearm, got a new hair-style and has traded his chocolate-boy look for a smouldering one! This has worked quite to his advantage in his newly released film Red. And now, he will put his machoism to use in Sanjay Gupta’s film, where he is to play an uncouth villainous cop.

Aftab has signed a three-film deal with Sanjay Gupta. He will be doing a Chicago-based film called Jazbaa, which will go on floors this summer. Gupta has also got him to sign a film with Tigmanshu Dhulia which is a remake of award-winning Denzel Washington starrer Training Day. Aftab will play the role of a brawny cop in this film, but he will be seen in a negative role.

Sanjay Gupta believes that Aftab has been doing the wrong kind of films. Hopefully for Gupta, his films will now exploit Aftab’s talent and put him back on track!
