The actor is paired opposite Diana Penty in the Kunal Deshmukh directorial.
The trailer for Shiddat gave away what's the love story between Sunny Kaushal and Radhika Madan. But there's also a glimpse into another love story between Mohit Raina and Diana Penty. Now, during a recent interaction, the Mumbai Diaries actor revealed what his role is all about and how it plays an important part in Sunny and Radhika's story. This is the first time Mohit has been paired opposite Diana in a movie.
The actor told Film Companion, "I don't know how it has shaped up and how it's going to be like, but I play Sunny's mentor/guardian. It's a very different story, it's very interesting and Kunal (Kunal Deshmukh), our director, has done a fabulous job. The music is amazing and these two (Sunny and Radhika) are looking fantastic."
Mohit also revealed that Shiddat is something that he has never done before. He called it a full-on romance, which he wanted to do.
The actor added that he plays Sunny's mentor or guardian and calls it a very different role. Mohit also revealed that he recently saw the trailer and understood from it that Shiddat will be like a pure love story.
Mohit added, "I am hoping that people will love it and see me in a very different way. Thankfully, there's no foul language over there, so I'll be saved."
Raina made his Bollywood debut back in 2008 with the film Don Muthu Swami in which Mithun Chakraborty played the titular role.
Interestingly, before Sunny, Mohit worked with his brother and actor Vicky Kaushal in Uri - The Surgical Strike which was released in 2019.
The Devon Ke Dev – Mahadev actor also had a cameo appearance in Good Newwz alongside Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Whereas, he played a pivotal role in Mrs Serial Killer.
Mohit is currently riding high on the success of his latest outing Mumbai Diaries 26/11 streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
