Actor Rajat Bedi will debut in Telugu films as the main villain in a blockbuster film AHIMSA directed by well known director Teja and also marking the debut of ‘Bahubali’ fame Rana Daggubati’s younger brother Abhiram Daggubati and new face beautiful & gorgeous Geethika Tiwary.
The new film AHIMSA is a youth-oriented love story produced by Anandi Art Creations (P. Kiran) and Sri D. Suresh Babu, one of the biggest producers of South India.
Rajat Bedi, who has done close to 50 Hindi films with all the superstars of Hindi cinema, is now making a super-stellar comeback to star as the main villain. Rajat Bedi’s filmography includes several blockbusters such as International Khiladi, Jodi No. 1, Indian, Jaani Dushman…, Chor Machaaye Shor, Chaalbaaz, The Hero: Love Story of a Spy, Rakht, Aksar, Rocky – The Rebel, Jaan-E-Mann, Partner,The Train, Khamoshh…Khauff ki Raat.
An ‘extremely fighting fit’ and ‘raring to go’ Rajat Bedi says, “Whenever a new actor or star emerges in Telugu films, the villain has always been given due importance and this time it’s me Rajat Bedi. And bagging the main villain’s role opposite Rana Daggubati’s younger brother Abhiram in a Anandi Art Creations (P. Kiran) & Sri D. Suresh Babu’ film directed by Teja sir is a dream come true. Teja sir believes in working with and is known to launch new talent who are superstars now!”
Rajat Bedi is keen to make a comeback as he sees major difference in the Indian film industry now. “I always felt incomplete staying away from the Indian film and entertainment industry as this is where I belong! The timing is perfect now – the emergence of multiple platforms such as OTT, cable and satellite television, DTH and online digital formats are coinciding with new talent who are telling different stories and presently them in a daringly different manner. Besides acting, I plan to venture into production and will soon set up a production house in Mumbai,” says Rajat Bedi..
“It’s almost 20 years but people still remember Rajat Bedi as the villain opposite Hrithik Roshan in Rakesh Roshan’s Koi…Mil Gaya. I cannot reveal much about Abhiram’s dream debut but I can definitely say that I shall ensure that Abhiram’s fans hate me and yet adore and respect and remember me for being the villain in his debut film. I shall create history in Telugu films with a villain’s role that will stand out as one of the most powerful ever,” added Rajat Bedi..
