Come Valentine’s Day, Randeep Hooda will be ready to murder love in the upcoming release Murder 3 also featuring Aditi Rao Hydari and Sara Loren.
Randeep Hooda hopes to strike a lottery with Murder 3 as the previous two films of the franchise did well. But the actor admits he is not under any pressure either.
"It is my good luck that this film is titled 'Murder 3' because the first two films were very successful and I would also want to strike a lottery with this one. (But) More than that, I don't have any expectations or pressure," the 36-year-old said here Wednesday in an interview.
He asserts the pressure is only on the filmmakers.
"They (Bhatts) titled it 'Murder 3' and the pressure is on them. I have done my work and it is over," Randeep said.
'Murder 3' not just about erotica: Aditi Rao Hydari
Aditi Rao Hydari, who is a part of the latest instalment of the "Murder" franchise, says the movie goes beyond erotica and boasts of a great storyline.
"This particular film is about relationships and there is love, lust and sex in (all) relationships... that is natural. So, there is that element. 'Murder 3' is far beyond these things... it is not only about erotica. It is a fantastic story," the 34-year-old here Wednesday in an interview.
Aditi is also all praise for first-time director Vishesh Bhatt, son of veteran filmmaker Mukesh Bhatt.
"Vishesh handled this film amazingly. It is his first film, he studies in New York and had a very clear idea about what he wants," said the actress, previously seen in films like "Rockstar" and "London, Paris, New York".
"Murder 3", releasing Feb 15, also stars Randeep Hooda and Pakistani actress Sara Loren.
Asked about the reason behind quitting Raanjhnaa, Aditi said: "It was a very nice part, I would have wanted to do the film but I had committed to 'Murder 3' already."
"If I have committed to something, I cannot do anything else. I did not even sign 'Raanjhnaa'."
The role is now being played by Swara Bhaskar.
Being directed by Aanand Rai, "Raanjhnaa" also stars Dhanush, Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol.
