Ashutosh Rana, who sends chills down the spine with his on-screen appearances is all set to make a grand Bollywood comeback with Dhadak. The actor who was busy in the southern film industry for past few years opined that directors over there do not typecast actors, unlike Bollywood.

Rana is making his B-town comeback with seven big releases in a span of two years. When asked about why he chose projects in the South over Bollywood, he said, "Directors in the south film industry don't typecast you; they let you explore yourself as an actor. Along with us, they also think out of the box and are keen on exploring and pushing you beyond the limit. Whereas here, after doing larger-than-life characters in Sangharsh and Dushman, people couldn't think of anything else for me."

The Sangharsh star has already completed shooting for four Bollywood films in the past six months, which could be a record in itself. Rana will be next seen in Dharma productions' Dhadak, Anubhav Sinha's Mulk, Abhishek Chaubey's Sonchiraiya, Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies, Rohit Shetty's Simmba, Ismail Darbar's 'Tigdum' and Shekhar Sirrin's Chicken Curry Law.

Talking about Dhadak, he told Mumbai Mirror, "I share a great relationship with Karan Johar's production house and director Shashank Khaitan, who has strived to explore my full potential as an actor. My character in Dhadak is magnetic; viewers will be drawn into his psyche." In Dhadak, Rana is playing the role of debutante Janhvi Kapoor's upper-class, narrow-minded landlord father.
