New Delhi, June 1 -- After she was appreciated for playing actor Shahid Kapoor's mother in Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider (2014), actor Tabu will now be seen in the role of a cop in Ajay Devgn-starrer Drishyam.

The actor, who plays the role of IG Meera Deshmukh in the film, will be seen trying to solve a murder and will be chasing suspects. It will be directed by Nishikant Kamat. The film is a remake of the Malayali film, Drishyam (2013).

The buzz is that the actor met with Roy a few days back to discuss the thriller, and Saif was immediately on board. The actor would also be playing a father in the film.


Actor Irrfan Khan will be seen in the role of a cop in filmmaker Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa. The film, which also marks the comeback of actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, has generated a lot of buzz after the first look of the lead actors were revealed by Gupta on Twitter. Reports suggest that Khan will play the role of a suspended cop in the action drama.


Actor Priyanka Chopra is all set to play the role of a cop in Prakash Jha's Gangaajal 2. She will be playing the role of Abha Mathur, superintendent of police. The actor's look surprised the director, too, who posted on Twitter, "LookTest#Gangaajajal2 gave me a bit of a scare! She looked like an underage TeenCop.. But only till the Camera Saw Her!!."


The actor is all set to enthrall the audience with his role as an ATS cop in his film Wazir. Farhan's look in the film has fetched him praise from police officers, after he arranged a special screening of the trailer for them. The actor has also bulked up for the role.


Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui will be seen as a cop chasing a mafia don played by actor Shah Rukh Khan in his upcoming film, Raees. "Nawazuddin has been preparing for the role in the film. He worked on his body and has even bulked up to look convincing on-screen," says a source.

The actor was offered cop roles in both Sujoy Ghosh and Prakash Jha's films. However, it was announced recently that she will be a part of Ghosh's venture. "She cannot do both, as playing two cops around the same time would look repetitive.
