Mumbai: Actor Rahul Roy, who starred in the original 'Aashiqui', is looking forward to his return to the big screen with 'Welcome To Russia'.
"I'm happy with the production. It is being shot very well technically and has a good love story and good music," Rahul said in a statement.
Rahul plays Arsan in the movie, directed by Nitin Gupta and produced by Neole Films.
"The character is half Russian, half Indian, a high ranking cop in Russia, also a marksman, a thoroughly corrupt cop who is involved with the Russian mafia. My look and role is very different and exciting. This film will be released this year and I am looking forward to it," he added.
Rahul had last year said he hopes to explore different areas of Indian cinema.
He said he had not worked in India for a long time as he was in Australia for nine years before deciding to come back in 2015.
