Reasons Why Randeep Hooda Rejected Hollywood Offers Before Extraction

Bollywood’s handsome hunk Randeep Hooda has finally made his debut in Hollywood with Netflix film Extraction alongside Chris Hemsworth. It’s an action packed film and Randeep plays a role as important as of Chris. But did you know that Extraction was not the first Hollywood project offered to Randeep? Well, that’s true! In a recent interview, Randeep revealed, “I have been offered Hollywood franchise movies earlier but I felt that the character was being ridiculed, or is a stereotypical portrayal of the subcontinent. So, I respectfully declined.” Very often, in Hollywood films, the Indian characters are not explored. They are either shown as business tycoons or total nerds. But Randeep wanted to show the Indian actors have lot more to offer. Well, earlier, actors like Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai, Anupam Kher, Irrfan Khan and others have worked in Hollywood films and the next one to join the list will be Hrithik Roshan.
