Guess who is turning out to be the Tom Cruise of Bollywood? It is Sanjay Suri who has made a name for himself by appearing in films as diverse as MY BROTHER NIKHIL, BAS EK PAL and most recently SAY SALAAM INDIA.
With soon to be released SPEED, he gets into a different mould altogether as he gets into Tom Cruise shoes. How exactly? Well, taking a cue from Cruise’s MISSION IMPOSSIBLE series, SPEED too stars Suri as an undercover MI5 agent.
His character in the film goes through turmoil when bad boy Aftab Shivdasani and his moll [Sophie Chaudhary] kidnap his wife [Urmila Matondkar]. Also, he is used as a weapon to assassinate the PM of India. How he cracks the mystery and gets the bad guys to books forms the basic plot of SPEED which takes inspiration from CELLULAR.
A multi starrer, Vikram Bhatt directed SPEED also stars Zayed Khan, Aashish Chaudhary, Tanushree Datta and Amrita Arora. The film is aiming for a 19th October release.
