"He is playing a cameo. He is making a special appearance in the film. It was a character that we were talking about, and we were looking for someone. Randeep's name came up and Homi spoke to him. He (Randeep) liked his part and he came on board," producer Dinesh Vijan, told PTI.
After impressive acts in "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai", "Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster" and "Jannat 2", Randeep has some big films like "Jism 2" and "Heroine" in his kitty. "Randeep is a fantastic actor, he is superb. He is a really good actor and we want to work with him really soon." he said.
After their chemistry clicked with the audience in "Love Aaj Kal" and "Aarakshan", Saif and Deepika have been cast together for the third time in "Cocktail". "Saif heard the script and he really liked it.
Then we gave the script to Deepika and offered her both the roles, she chose Veronica. Then we thought the correct twist in this 'Cocktail' will be to cast a newcomer, fresh face for the role of Meera," Vijan said.
