National Award winning film-maker JP Dutta, who is known for directing Border, is back with his next project titled Paltan. Though JP Dutta has not shared much details, Paltan will reportedly be about an exciting ensemble starcast. The HT Café has reported that the veteran film-maker has signed Sonu Sood to be part of his project.

A source reveals, “Sonu’s wish to portray the role of a soldier on the big screen will finally be fulfilled with JP Dutta’s Paltan, which is a war film. Twenty years after making Border, the film-maker is back to doing a war film and this time it promises to be bigger and better. The actor will play a Major who hails from Rajasthan.”

Sharing more about it, Sonu Sood says, “I had wanted to get into the Army but then I decided to pursue engineering and then I go into the movies. But getting into that army uniform was always a high. Even in my acting career, I always thought that it will be a dream come true to play an army officer. I have completely loved and enjoyed all the war films – whether it’s Hindi or English as it gives you a patriotic feeling. I think it’s a huge high for any actor to play a soldier and I am looking forward to starting work on this project.”

Besides Sonu Sood, Arjun Rampal has been signed on for the project. Others actors like Abhishek Bachchan, Pulkit Samrat and Jackie Shroff‘s names have been speculated to be a part of the project.
