Rajkummar Rao, Nushrat Bharucha to star in Hansal Mehta's Turram Khan
Rajkummar and the filmmaker have previously collaborated on Shahid, City Lights, Omerta and Bose - The Forgotten Hero
Rajkummar Rao and Nushrat Bharucha will be starring together in Hansal Mehta's upcoming film, Turram Khan. The film is billed as a social comedy set in small-town Uttar Pradesh. The film is produced by Ajay Devgn, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg. Rajkummar and Nushrat were last seen together in Dibakar Banerjee's Love, Sex Aur Dhokha.
Sharing his excitement for the film, Hansal says, "I am delighted to be collaborating with Luv on this very exciting comedy. It is a new chapter in my filmography with Raj whose success I see as a vindication of my belief in him. It is also wonderful to be working with Nushrat whose work I’ve followed and liked immensely in the past. This is my first out-and-out comedy and it is like making my debut all over again!”
Rajkummar, who is still riding high on the success of his recent film Stree, adds, "Turram Khan is a comedy that the audience will take back home. Hansal sir plays a very instrumental role in my acting career. He has created some interesting and memorable characters for me. I trust him blindly. I have known Nushrat since our days of auditioning and screen tests. I am sure this is going to be a fun collaboration.”
Nushrat, who delivered her last hit with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, says, “I absolutely love Hansal sir’s cinema and I’m looking forward to playing this earthy character rooted in UP as the audience will see me in a completely different light. Over the years, Raj’s journey as an actor has been an inspiring one. He and Hansal sir have a formidable camaraderie and I am super excited to work with them."
Turram Khan is expected to go on floors in November. Rajkummar Rao and Hansal Mehta have previously collaborated on Shahid, City Lights, Omerta and Bose - The Forgotten Hero.
