Gurmeet Choudhary joins JP Dutta’s Paltan


Gurmeet Choudhary is still trying to find his foothold in Bollywood, but after his princely avatar in ‘Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana’ things seem to be changing for the actor.

The former TV star has signed veteran filmmaker JP Dutta’s ambitious project ‘Paltan’. The war drama boasts of an exciting ensemble star cast like Abhishek Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty amongst others. Gurmeet will be seen essaying the character of a Major and the veteran filmmaker is happy to have him on board for his mega venture as he hails from a family with army background.

The popular star recently took to social media to share the news. “It’s a huge honour to work with JP sir. Since my father has served the army and his country for several years, I’ve been fascinated to play a soldier on the big screen. Also I feel bringing the life of an army soldier alive on screen would be a very interesting journey. It’s a gift to my father!” Gurmeet tweeted.
