Salman Khan recently announced that that the void that Sanjay Leela Bhansali left behind by shelving Inshallah will be filled in by another cop drama titled Radhe. The actor however made no mention about the star cast of the movie. Now it has been learnt that Randeep Hooda is set to play an antagonist in Salman Khan''s forthcoming film "Radhe".
