Suniel Shetty looks forward to his return to action genre and launch of his wife, Mana Shetty's lifestyle ventures
Suniel Shetty is geared for an eventful 2013. The actor is set to return to the genre of action and also set to launch two ventures – R-House and Discover - that have been developed by his wife, Mana Shetty.
Shetty, who was known for action films like Mohra and Kaante, says, "I am really looking forward to next year because I have a lineup of exciting action films, the genre that I haven’t attempted in a long time because was busy doing other genres." Divulging details about his projects, he says, "I have completed 70 per cent shoot of Vishram Sawant's Shooter where I play an encounter specialist. The film is a story of relationship between an informer and a cop and Randeep Hooda plays the informer. I am also a part of Ashok Trika's Enemmy which is a cop drama. "The actor reportedly is to star with Salman Khan in his forthcoming film Kick. Though Shetty clarifies, "It's too early to comment on this."
Meanwhile, under his brand S2, the actor is set to launch two verticals – R-House, a lifestyle store in Worli and Discovery, a set of luxury villas in old Khandala. He says, "I started S2 when my production company (Popcorn Entertainment) didn't work. My wife has been designing the interiors of homes for some time now, so I thought it would be perfect to start R-House. My sister (Sujata Shetty) also joined in and as a result, we began this family owned company. Now, both of them have taken charge of the creatives and marketing, while I just guide them if they need my help," says the actor. R-House will stock affordable high-end quality products and will be launched on January 12.
He is also excited about his other projects – Discovery, that consist of 21 luxury villas built in Khandala. Set amidst the verdant valley, the prices of these exotic villas will start from Rs. 7 crore and the villas have been designed by John Abraham's father and brother.
While the villas will be open to buyers from 2013, the actor also has plans to expand Discovery. He informs, "Khandala is just one part of the project. I also intend to start properties in Goa and Mangalore."
