Keerthy Suresh who has already proved her mettle as an actress in her past films like Mahanathi which holds the record for the highest grossing south film with a female lead is all set to make her Hindi film debut opposite Ajay Devgn who plays Syed Abdul Rahim in Amit Sharma’s directorial.
Keerthy will be seen essaying the role of Mr. Syed Abdul Rahim’s wife in the film. Taking about the film she says, “I am elated and honoured to be a part of such a great story. This film is a forgotten chapter in the Indian history and I am glad that the makers have chosen to tell this story. This is a film that will make each and every Indian proud. I believe this is a story that doesn’t belong to any specific region or language of India but is a great Indian story that the world should know. With all my past films, I have consciously chosen to do roles that challenge me and add to the narrative of the film. When the makers came to me with this role, I was quite intrigued by it and felt that I would be able to pull it off.
Ajay Devgn is one of the most talented superstars that we have in our country. I have seen a lot of his films and it is an honour for me to share screen space with an actor of his calibre.”
The film is produced by Boney Kapoor along with Akash Chawla and Arunava Joy Sengupta. Taking about it he says, “Its also a conservative love story which focuses on the couple’s life after marriage. Keerthy is one of the most successful actresses in Tamil, Telugu and Malyalam cinema. Her presence would give us an enhanced reach in the southern belt. It is not being planned as a bilingual but as a Hindi feature film. Its a fabulous story with a pan-India reach, and has the potential to be one of the biggest films that will break the language barrier.”
