Soha Ali Khan is excited about her upcoming action drama Ghayal Once Again, a sequel to the 1990 hit film Ghayal and says that she is enjoying everything about the shoot.
“I play the role of a doctor in the film. It is an intense and action-packed film that has incredible action sequences,” she said in Mumbai on Tuesday at a store launch.
“It is a sequel in the true sense. I saw the first part and I loved it,” she added.
Directed by actor-director Sunny Deol, Ghayal Once Again will take off from where the first version left. Reportedly, the film is based on a real-life event in the life of a Mumbai Police encounter specialist.
This is the first time Ali Khan has worked with Deol and she has had a “beautiful experience” during the shooting of the film.
“It is quite a privilege to be directed by Sunny [Deol] sir. We are still shooting. I would say it is my one of the most challenging roles to date,” the actress said.
“I am really excited and looking forward to the release,” she added.
Although the film will have a lot of action, Ali Khan won’t be doing any stunts.
“I am not doing stunts in the film but I do get to try to be the hero of a scene in the film and I remember when he said to me, ‘Today you are the hero. I was shivering’,” Ali Khan said.
“During that scene I even got bruises. It was an intense sequence. I stayed in bed for the whole of the next day.”
Ghayal Once Again is set for release on November 13. It also features Om Puri, Prachi Desai and Tisca Chopra.
