Recently the superstar Randeep Hooda has caught the eye of Mumbai’s Fire Department who has approached the actor to sign him as their brand ambassador. Needless to say, the actor was ecstatic to receive the offer and agreed. Randeep Hooda later said that he recognizes both the difficulty and importance of the fire marshal’s job. His primary role as the ambassador will involve spreading awareness about their work and get more volunteers to sign up. The fire department is confident that by roping in Hooda, they will see a tenfold increase in the number of volunteers.
Randeep will kick off the campaign in this month. His association with the Fire Brigade is expected to increase the number of volunteers from 7000 to 70,000. Randeep revealed that he is not afraid of fire, but knows just how dangerous it can be given the high temperature. The actor even discussed the perils with the men-in-uniform during the shoot. As for getting into their uniform, Randeep admitted that it was a proud moment for him to wear it.
“It’s hot,” he said.
After he was presented with the fire marshal’s uniform, the actor said that it was one of the most proud moments of his life. He then took to Twitter to share the news of his association (and the picture) with his fans.
Randeep Hooda will begin work on the department’s first campaign on April 14.
Randeep Hooda is currently busy with the promotions of his soon-to-release film Laal Rang, is also being much-talked about for his realistic portrayal in the upcoming biopic Sarbjit.
