Ashutosh Rana and Manoj Bajpayee will be seen together in Abhishek Chaubey's crime thriller, Sonchiriya. The two last shared screen space in J P Dutta's LOC Kargil (2003). Rana says the film has managed to rekindle the old chemistry between him and Bajpayee. Some powerhouse of talent will be on display.

Ashutosh Rana has completed shooting for four films in the past six months, making a grand comeback of sorts into Bollywood. He says it was high time he returned as people had started questioning him about "vanishing" from the industry.

Ashutosh has been working a lot in the southern film industry for the past few years. Now he has seven big Bollywood releases in a span of the next two years. He was seen in Dharma Productions' Dhadak and Anubhav Sinha's Mulk recently and will be next seen in Abhishek Chaubey's Sonchiraiya, Tigmanshu Dhulia's Milan Talkies, Rohit Shetty's Simmba, Ismail Darbar's Tigdum and Shekhar Sirrin's Chicken Curry Law.

On working in back-to-back projects, Ashutosh said in a statement to IANS, "In a party, I met someone who said that I have vanished from the industry, and it wasn't like that. I have been working in the south industry and a film in Bollywood at regular intervals. I guess that comment hit a nerve and I decided to make an imprint here again and I took up the projects. There is lot of work in the south, but I guess it was high time to jump back. So, I completed everything in one shot."
