Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D'Cruz, Sendhil Ramamurthy in new rom-com
The as-yet-untitled film is being directed by ad filmmaker Shirsha Guha Thakurta
Vidya Balan, Pratik Gandhi, Ileana D'Cruz, and Sendhil Ramamurthy are headlining a new romantic comedy-drama. The as-yet-untitled film is being directed by ad filmmaker Shirsha Guha Thakurta. It is being co-produced by Applause Entertainment and Ellipsis Entertainment.
The film is described as 'a progressive, uninhibited take on modern relationships', and marks Applause’s second collaboration with Ellipsis (after the Tahira Kashyap Khurrana-directed Sharmajee Ki Beti). It is currently filming in locations across Mumbai and Ooty.
Sameer Nair, CEO, Applause Entertainment, says, “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.”
Producers Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar, and Swati Iyer at Ellipsis Entertainment jointly state, “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.”
Director Shirsha Guha Thakurta tells us, "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."
