Rukmini Maitra to make her Bollywood debut opposite Vidyut Jammwal!

After announcing the release of ‘Sanak – Hope Under Siege’ on Disney+ Hotstar on the auspicious occasion of Dussehra (15th October) this year, the makers – Vipul Amrutlal Shah and ZEE Studios have now revealed a new poster from the hostage drama featuring Vidyut Jammwal and Rukmini Maitra.

Rukmini, who will be making her big Bollywood debut with ‘Sanak’ alongside Vidyut is considered as one of the most popular and biggest names in the Bengali film industry, with a few successful movies to her credit.

Rukmini says, “When I got a call from Vipul Shah’s office for an action thriller featuring Vidyut Jammwal, I knew it’s going to be one of the finest action thrillers to be made in India, since Vipul sir has made such fantastic big-budget action films. Plus it had scope for performance, which I always seek as an actor. So it was a win-win situation for me. They were looking for a fresh face and I was asked to send in a small audition and I was signed for the movie.”

Vipul Shah informs, “Since love story is an integral part of ‘Sanak’, we were looking for a fresh face to feature alongside Vidyut in the film and Rukmini was the perfect choice. Both Vidyut and Rukmini make for a great pair and I am hopeful that the audience is going to love their on-screen chemistry.”

The new poster revealed by the makers featuring Vidyut and Rukmini looks exciting, as the new on-screen couple appears to be deeply in love.

Besides creating musical blockbusters with superstars for over two decades, Vipul Shah has also launched talented actors including Aditya Roy Kapur and Vidyut Jammwal.

Starring Vidyut Jammwal, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Neha Dhupia and Rukmini Maitra, ‘Sanak - Hope Under Siege’ is presented by Zee Studios in association with Sunshine Pictures Pvt Ltd and will be streaming from 15th October on Disney+ Hotstar Multiplex.
