Here's some good news for fans of Television actor Gautam Rode. The actor, whose stint on popular show "Suryaputra Karn" came to an end recently, will next be seen in a Bollywood film. Gautam has been roped in for the sequel of thriller film "Aksar" (2006), which starred Emraan Hashmi, Dino Morea and Udita Goswami.

A DNA report said that the "Suryaputra Karn" actor had been shooting for the film in Madh Island, Mumbai and would be seen sporting a short-hair look. Gautam has been sharing pictures of him from his next project on social media, but hasn't revealed any details about the film.

Bollywood actress Zareen Khan has been roped in as the female lead in the film, however, the lead actor is yet to be finalised. But the report further said that one can expect a romantic sequence between Zarina and Gautam. 

"Aksar 2" will be directed by Anant Mahadevan, who had helmed the prequel. Interestingly, the film will also feature former Indian cricketer S Sreesanth in a cameo role.

"Aksar 2" is not Gautam's debut film. The actor had earlier been part of films like "U, Bomsi and Me" (2005) and "Agyaat" (2009). As TV actor, Gautam has played the lead role in several daily soaps including "Maha Kumbh," "Saraswatichandra," "Parichay," "Maan Rahe Tera Pitaah" among others.

In other news, Gautam recently made headlines when the makers of historical drama "Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat" were keen on roping him for the role of grown-up Ashoka on the show. But the actor reportedly had to deny the offer as he was then shooting for "Suryaputra Karn."
