Vidya Balan has announced her next project, which is said to be funny, moving rom-dramedy aka romantic comedy-drama! Directed by Shirsha Guha Thakurta, the film also stars Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D’Cruz, and Sendhil Ramamurthy. A dream cast for sure!
The actress, who is very excited about the film wrote on Instagram, “Stoked about my next – an untitled charming drama-comedy about modern relationships, which promises to be either your story or the story of your friend. It will make you laugh and cry in equal measure.
Adding, she is delighted to be directed by Shirsha Guha Thakurta and to have such an amazing posse of co-actors she wrote, “I’m enjoying playing Kavya to the hilt.”
Produced by Applause Entertainment (Scam 1992:The Harshad Mehta Story) and Ellipsis Entertainment (Tumhari Sulu), the movie is now filming in locations across Mumbai and Ooty.
Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta says, “When I first heard this story, I was instantly attracted to its universe — honest, funny, and so today. The actors have been a dream to work with. Their generosity is something I will always cherish. My producers (Applause and Ellipsis) have been extremely supportive and stood by me like a rock. Yes, I’m nervous, but this journey so far has been truly special.”
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar, and Swati Iyer, partners at Ellipsis Entertainment, say, “The subject of love remains intriguing and debated. We were keen to tackle relationship fatigue by coming up with something that is dynamic, nuanced, relatable, uplifting, and humorous, all in the same breath. This is probably the story of your life or definitely one that you’ve seen one or more of your friends go through. With a formidable cast, script, and director, Applause, and Ellipsis are truly excited about this multi-starrer.”
Sameer Nair (CEO, Applause Entertainment), adds, “The film is a sparkling, sophisticated romance that subverts all notions of love and fidelity in modern times. While alchemy best describes the coming together of this incredible cast, we’re thrilled to collaborate with Shirsha Guha Thakurta, who has an extraordinarily perceptive understanding of human relationships. We’re also excited to partner with Ellipsis once again, to bring this witty, charming, and passionate story to life.”
Vidya says, “Can’t wait for you’ll to watch it next year! And wait for an announcement on the title soon!”
